Description

Magnetostrictive Level Transmitters

JUPITER® Model JM4 Magnetostrictive Level Transmitters
The Jupiter® JM4 liquid level transmitter is a loop-powered 24 V DC liquid-level transmitter and is available as a direct insertion transmitter or as an external mounted transmitter onto a Magnetic Level Indicator. The unit can be designed for liquid level and/or liquid-liquid interface measurement.

The innovative enclosure is a first in the industry, orienting dual compartments (wiring and electronics) in the same plane and angled to maximize ease of wiring, configuration, set-up and data display.

The high safety level of JUPITER is demonstrated by a Safe Failure Fraction > 90 %

Operating Principle
A low energy pulse, generated by the Jupiter electronics, travels the length of the magnetostrictive wire. A return signal is generated from the precise location where the magnetic field of a float intersects the wire. A timer precisely measures the elapsed time between the generation of the pulse and the return of the acoustic signal.
