General specifications
Function principlelimit detection
Maximum or minimum detection in tanks or pipelines containing all types of liquids including use in explosion hazardous areas. Particularly suited to very aggressive liquids thanks to high degree of corrosion protection.
Measuring methodThe forks of the sensors vibrate at their intrinsic frequency. This frequency is reduced when covered with liquid.
The change in frequency then activates the limit switch.
Construction typedevice with extension tube
SeriesVibracon LVL-M2

Switching pointsee section switch point
Measured variablelimit level (limit value)
Measurement rangedepends on mounting point
Switching delaywhen fork is covered: approx. 0.5 s, when fork is exposed: approx. 1.0 s (other switching times on request)
additionally configurable for PROFIBUS PA (electronic insert FEL50A (PA)): 0.5 ... 60 s
Switch behaviourswitch-over for minimum/maximum residual current safety on electronic insert
MAX = maximum safety:
The output switches to the power fail response when the fork is covered.
for use with overspill protection for example
MIN = minimum safety:
The output switches to the power fail response when the fork is exposed.
for use with dry running protection for example
When switching on the power supply the output assumes the alarm signal. After max. 2 s it assumes the correct switching mode.

Details: LVL-M2


The device is a level limit switch for use in all liquids.

  • for temperature from -50 °C to +150 °C

  • for pressures up to 64 bar

  • for viscosities up to 10000 mm 2/s

  • for densities up to 0.5 g/cm 3 or 0.7 g/cm 3 (other settings available on request)

The function is not affected by flow, turbulence, bubbles, foam, vibration, bulk solids content or build-up, the device is thus the ideal substitute for float switches.

The device is available with extension tube up to 3 m (up to 6 m on request).

High corrosion-resistant Alloy C4 (2.4610) is available for the vibration fork and process connection for applications in very aggressive liquids.

Devices with protection Ex ia and Ex d are available for use in explosion hazardous areas.
