Function
The Vibracon is a level limit switch for use in all liquids. with a temperature between -40 C and +150 C with a pressure up to 64 bar with a viscosity up to 10,000 mm/s with a density up to 0.5 g/cm. The function is not affected by flow, turbulence, bubbles, foam, vibration, bulk solids content or build-up, the Vibracon is thus the ideal replacement for float switches. Compact version, ideal for mounting in pipes (LVL-M1). With extension tube up to 3 m (LVL-M2). High corrision-resistant Alloy C4 (2.4610) is available for the vibration fork and process connection for applications in very aggressive liquids. Instruments with protection EEx ia and EEx d are available for use in explosion hazardous areas.

Features
Large selection of process connections: universal use Small dimensions of the vibrating fork and process connections ": for difficult to access areas Wide variety of electronic modules (e. g. relay, thyristor signal output): the right connection for every process control system No calibration: quick and low-cost start-up No mechanically moving parts: maintenance-free, no wear, long operating life Monitoring of the vibrating fork for damage: guaranteed function

Electrical connection
Example connection FEL52 (E5) 3-wire D.C. connection Other connection types see section electrical connections.

Vibration limit switch Vibracon LVL-M


Vibracon LVL-M

Application Function principle Limit detection Maximum or minimum detection in tanks or pipelines containing all types of liquids including use in explosion hazardous areas and in foodstuff and pharmaceutical industries. The forks of the sensor vibrate at their intrinsic frequency. This frequency is reduced when covered with liquid. The change in frequency then activates the limit switch. Limit level (limit value) LVL-M1: specified by mounting point. LVL-M2: specified by length of the sensor with extension tube (max. 3000 mm/115 inch). Adjustment on the electronic insert > 0.5 g/cm3 or > 0.7 g/cm3 Switchable minimum/maximum closed circuit safety on the electronic insert Max. = Maximum fail-safe mode The relay is de-energised when the probe is covered or the power supply fails. Application e. g. for overspill protection Min. = Minimum fail-safe mode The relay is de-energised when the probe is free or the power supply fails. Application e. g. for dry-run protection approx. 0.5 s when covering the vibrating fork approx. 1.0 s when uncovering the vibrating fork When switching on the power supply the output assumes the alarm signal. After max. 2 s it assumes thre correct switching mode.

Technical data

FEL 51 (AC)

Always connect in series with the load! Check the following: the residual current in the blocked state (up to 3.8 mA). that for low voltage the voltage across the load is such that the minimum terminal voltage at the electronic insert (19 V) when blocked is not too low. the voltage drop across the electronic insert when open is observed (up to 12 V). that a relay cannot de-energise with a retaining current below 3.8 mA. If this is the case, a resistor should be connected parallel to the relay.
