Magnetosrictive Level Transmitters for Level Gages

Product Announcement from JOGLER, Inc.

Magnetosrictive Level Transmitters for Level Gages-Image

Introducing the new JLT-6000 magnetostrictive level transmitter, available in three different models. Model: MGT-6000 For Magnetic Level Gages


Jogler's MGT-6000 series level transmitter is the latest development in magnetostrictive level sensing technology which is designed exclusively for magnetic level gages. The MGT-6000 contains a low profile waveguide that is mounted away from the level gage chamber. This design isolates the dual sealed waveguide from excessive vibration and temperature. From enhanced sensor technology, the output signal is fast, stable and extremely accurate.


The MGT-6000 contains three elements; the transmitter head, sensor pickup and waveguide probe. It uses the magnetic field generated by the mag-gage float to produce a proportionate level signal output. A low energy pulse generated by the transmitter electronics spans the waveguide probe and determines a base time-of-flight interval. As the float reacts to level fluctuations, the magnetic field intersects the waveguide which causes a deflection of the waveguide sensing wire. When this occurs, the time-of-flight interval changes and is detected by the transmitter sensor pickup which converts the deflection to an electrical signal. The transmitter electronics recalculates
