Deeter LVCS-RF Liquid Vertical Continuous Sensor Radio Frequency

Deeter LVCS-RF Liquid Level Sensor

Wireless Level Sensor for Control & Indication of Liquid Level

Deeter’s LVCS-RF liquid level sensor continuously monitors liquid levels and transmits this information by radio to a Deeter Wireless Base Station at regular intervals.

The LVCS-RF level sensor is battery powered and wirelessly communicates in the 2.4GHz band using the internationally recognised IEEE802.15.4 protocol. The level sensors range can be more than 1km, subject to environmental factors. This range can be increased using one or more Deeter Wireless Routers.

The simplest measurement system comprises an LVCS-RF level sensor communicating to a Deeter Base Station connected to a 4-20mA current loop indicator such as a Deeter Current Loop Indicator (DCLI).

The LVCS-RF circuitry is housed in a die-cast Aluminium head with an external antenna. An optional 3m extension lead and bracket are available for mounting the antenna in a position more favourable to wireless communication.

The sensor circuit is fitted inside a 316L stainless steel tube attached to the head, with a 55mm magnetic ball-float.

Deeter LVCS-RF Liquid Level Sensor Radio Frequency Standard Range
Part Ref Sensor Stem Length Inserted Length
LVCS-RF1 LE01 250mm 340mm
LVCS-RF2 LE01 500mm 590mm
LVCS-RF3 LE01 750mm 840mm

The LVCS-RF is powered by a single 3.6V Lithium Thionyl Chloride battery. Battery life is typically 9 months (based on a transmission interval of 10 seconds and an uninterrupted wireless link to the base station).
