Capacitive level sensors (switches) CLS–23 are designed for limit level detection of electrically conductive and non-conductive fl uids in vessels, reservoirs, sumps, pipes, tanks, etc. The sensitivity of the sensor can be easily set by placing magnetic pen on sensitive spot.

The process coupling at the housing can be with metric thread (M18x1.5 ; M20x1.5), pipe thread (G3/8" ; G1/2") or sealing thread (NPT 1/2–14). Output performances – transistor output with open collector (PNP), two wire electronic switch (S) and NAMUR output.

There are next performances available: N – Normal for non-explosive areas, E – Extended temperature range for non-explosives areas, Xi – Explosion proof (intrinsically safe for explosive areas), NT – High temperature variant for non-explosives areas and XiT – High temperature variant for explosive areas.

Description

FEATURES OF VARIANTS

  • CLS –23_ –10

  • CLS –23_–11
    • Insulated (coated) short bar electrode, for non-aggressive electrically conductive liquid sensing (water, water solutions). The insulation is made from PP (Polypropylene). Electrode length 30 mm.
  • CLS –23_ –12
    • Insulated (coated) short bar electrode, for moderately aggressive electrically conductive liquid sensing (chemicals, water, moderately aggressive water solutions). Higher temperature resistance than variant “11”. The insulation is made from FEP (Tetrafl uoroethylene-Perfl uoro-Propylene).                     Electrode length 30 mm
  • CLS –23_ –20
    • Partly insulated rod electrode, for level detection of conductive and non-conductive liquids, partially resistant to vapours (water) condensation in the sensing area. The insulation is made from FEP. Vertical mounting; horizontal mounting (from the side) is possible for shorter electrodes (up to 200 mm).         Electrode length from 50 mm to 1 m.
  • CLS –23_ –21
    • Fully insulated rod electrode, for universal use, for level detection of conductive liquids (water, water solutions). Resistant to vapours (water) condensation in the sensing area and partially resistant to medium spraying. The insulation is made from FEP. Vertical mounting; horizontal mounting (from the side) is possible for shorter electrodes (up to 200 mm). Electrode length from 50 mm to 1 m.
  • CLS –23_ –30
    • Uncoated removable rod electrode, for level detection of conductive and non-conductive liquids. Vertical mounting; horizontal mounting (from the side) is possible for shorter electrodes (up to 200 mm). Electrode length from 50 mm to 1 m.

 

SENSOR SETTINGS

The setting is done by placing magnetic pen MP–8 to sensitive spot M located on the front of the sensor. Short time attaching (up to 2 sec.) of the magnetic pen to the sensitive spot M makes the sensor open. Long time attaching (at least 4 sec.) of the pen when the level is changed, defi nes closed state of the sensor. In this way is set the sensitivity for the measured medium and switching modes SO (normally open) or SC (normally closed). 
For detailed information please read at the instructions manual.

FACTORY DEFAULT SETTINGS:
Types CLS–23_–10; –20; –30 are set to detect mineral oil, CLS–23_–11; –12; –21 to detect water.

 

ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
CLS–23_–_–_–S–_
Positive pole (+ U) of power supply is connected through a load (relay) to brown (blue) wire or pin connector No. 1, negative pole is connected to white wire or pin connector No. 3.

CLS–23_–_–_–P–_
Positive pole (+ U) of power supply is connected to brown wire or pin connector No. 1, negative pole is connected to blue wire or pin connector No. 3. Load (relay) is connected to black wire or pin connector No. 2.

CLS–23_–_–_–R–_
Brown wire or pin connector No. 1 is connected to positive pole (+U) of Intrinsically safe supply unit. Blue wire or pin. connector No. 3 is connected to negative pole of Intrinsically safe supply unit.

Note:
The sensor output is protected against short circuits. Capacity loads and loads with low sleep resistance (bulb) the sensor evaluates as a short circuit.
In case of high ambient electromagnetic interference, parallel conductors with power lines, or lines at distances greater than 30 m, we recommend to use
shielded cable.

 

RANGE OF APPLICATION

Detection of various types of liquids – water, oils, coolants, water solutions, etc. Suitable for metal vessels, containers, tanks, sumps, pipes. Suitability for non-metallic containers (glass, plastic containers, etc.) please consult with the manufacturer.
