TurTle - Hydrostatic Pressure Transmitter
This Level sensor is developed directly for the water and sewerage branches.
TurTle´s measurement cell can easily be replaced
TurTle is a revolutionary pressure transmitter (Level sensor). TurTle is recognized by its robust design and is developed directly for the wastewater industry.
TurTle’s unique measurement cell can be separated from the sensor housing which is constructed in AISI304 stainless steel. This means the measurement cell can be replaced without having to replace the entire electrical installation, or in the case of a damaged cable, the measurement cell can be reused in another sensor housing.
Adjustable range of measurement
TurTle’s range of measurement is adjustable via a DIP switch on the rear of the measurement cell. TurTle can measure in 3 ranges, 0-3m, 0-5m or 0-10m, all with 4-20mA output signal. It is furthermore possible to zero-calibrate the measurement cell by using a DIP switch.
TurTle is designed with PUR-cable and can be delivered with the following standard lengths -10m, 15m, 30m or 50m.
Excelent precision and durability
TurTle uses a ceramic capacitive measurement cell with long durability, stability and great precision.
The sensor’s capillary tube is finished with a filter that prevents the absorption of moisture.
Furthermore, it has a total weight of 1.3 kg, which makes it incredibly stable in conditions with turbulent water.
