Magnetrol International’s Jupiter Model JM4 magnetostrictive level transmitter is available as a direct insertion option, as well as an external mount on any Magnetrol magnetic level indicator (MLI) or modular instrumentation bridle.
With an improved design, unparalleled performance, and a collection of new and innovative features, the company says, the JM4 provides safer, simpler, and smarter measurement in total and interface level applications. The unit is available with numerous enhancements, including greater signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), a full graphic local user interface, HART 7.0 (Foundation fieldbus available), local waveform capture, and a more intuitive device type manager (DTM) allowing for remote configuration, trending, and diagnostics.
The model is said to be the first magnetostrictive transmitter in the industry to offer a field-removable and rotatable head, which allows for simpler transmitter maintenance and troubleshooting without disrupting the process. The 310° of head rotation provides users with greater accessibility to operate the unit’s on-board graphical interface.
The transmitter also features Smart Probe technology. When any JM4 unit head is attached to a probe, a single push of a button imports factory configuration settings into the head making the transmitter ready for operation.
The Jupiter model now offers a remote mount option. Available in 3- and 12-ft lengths, the transmitter head is attached to the probe via a flexible cable, allowing for easier viewing under various spatial constraints.
