Solido Applications & Concepts
|Solido 500 Series|
|Paddle Level Limit Switches|
|Applications & Principals of Operation|
The Solido 500 is an electromechanical level limit sensor and is used for level monitoring of bulk materials. It can be used as a full, demand or empty detector.
Typical applications for bulk materials with a density from starting greater than 6 pounds/cubic foot are, for example:
The Solido is mounted on the container (top or side) at the required measuring height.
|The Solido 500 provides a budget-priced solution for reliable level limit measurement and offers the following features:
Principles of Operation
The rotating measuring vane is driven by a brushless synchronous motor. Once the material level reaches the vane it arrest the vane rotation. This is registered by a micro switch which emits a signal and stops the motor. Once the material level begins to fall and the vane is free of material the vane will rotate again.
