4B Components Ltd. Introduces Second Generation BinSwitch Elite Capacitance Point Level Indicator

Date Posted: November 5, 2013

Morton, IL—4B Components Ltd., a worldwide manufacturer of material handling and electronic components for bucket elevators and conveyors, announced Nov. 5 it has released a second generation capacitance point level indicator.

The Binswitch Elite detects level or plug situations for bulk granular solids or liquids in tanks, bins, or silos and can be used as a plug/choke detector in chutes, conveyors and elevator legs.

This new model has a user selectable relay output that can be magnetically calibrated to be normally energized or de-energized.

During calibration the sensor automatically compensates for potential dust build up.

The Binswitch Elite also has improved shielding to protect against electrical interference, common with variable frequency drives, RF antennas and EMI sources.

The sensor is fully encapsulated in a 30 mm diameter polycarbonate body that is corrosion and abrasion resistant, dust-tight and waterproof.

The Binswitch Elite is CSA class II division 1 groups E, F & G approved, and IP65 rated for hazardous dust environments. “The second generation Binswitch Elite is a direct result of our continued investment in research and development to push the limits of our electronic designs,” said Johnny Wheat, 4B Senior Vice President.
