Level sensors with a magnetostrictive, high-resolution measuring principle are used for continuous level measurement of liquids and are based on determining the position of a magnetic float following the magnetostrictive measuring principle. The sensors are mounted on the outside of a bypass level indicator.
The measuring process is triggered by a current impulse. This current produces a circular magnetic field along a wire made of magnetostrictive material, which is held under tension inside the sensor tube. At the point being measured (liquid level) there is a cylindrical float with permanent magnets acting as a position transducer, whose field lines run at right angles to the impulse magnetic field. This magnetic field of the float tensions the wire.
