Hazardous Area Liquid Level Sensor (ATEX IECEx) – Deeter LVCS-FP Explosion & Flameproof Sensor

Hazardous Area Liquid Level Sensor - Deeter LVCS-FP Explosion & Flamepoof Sensor

Explosion & Flameproof Liquid Level & Float Sensors

Deeter LVCS-FP is an explosion proof and flameproof liquid level sensor suitable for use in potentially explosive atmospheres in Zone 1 and Zone 2 hazardous areas.

Deeter LVCS-FP is made from 316 stainless steel, available in standard or customised lengths of up to 4 metres and uses reed switch of Hall Effect sensing technology for control and indication of a liquid level.

T&D distribute the complete range of Deeter Level Sensors and Float Switches.
