Level Monitoring in a Hazardous Area

Rechner has installed 23 High Performance Series Proximity Switches in a coffee manufacturing facility to monitor the level of powdered coffee.

Coffee 1

The dust created by the powdered coffee meant that Ex sensors were used, one sensor was used in each chamber of the silo. The sensor used is KAS-80-35-A-M32-StEX-N.
