WHAT IS AN EZ-track LIQUID LEVEL PROBE?

The EZ-track R16 liquid level probe is a programmable, two-wire loop powered intrinsically safe probe that is ideal for continuous level monitoring in a variety of liquids and tank designs. The R16 sensor uses magnetostrictive technology to monitor the position of a magnetic float along the active stroke of the sensing tube, which is then converted into a configurable 4-20 mA output.

All of the electronics for the R16 sensor are incorporated within the 5/8 inch sensing rod, which eliminates the need for an electronics enclosure at the top of the sensor. This feature, when ordered with the standard 4-pin minifast® 7/8-16UN quick disconnect, offers greater mounting options, and a faster, more reliable installation.

 • IP68 rated; available in a rigid 316 stainless steel housing or a flexible PVDF design.
 • Probe lengths vary between 18 and 288 inches.
 • A variety of floats, fittings and accessories are available to fit virtually any application requirement.
 • A resolution of 0.02 inches of full scale, and an accuracy of 0.1% over the programmable monitoring span.

WHERE CAN I USE THE EZ-track LIQUID LEVEL PROBE?

 • Because there are no parts to wear or break, the sensors offer better performance than competing technologies.
 • The stainless steel version is also available in an optional Food Grade or 3A Rated Sanitary finish probe for use in an array of food service, dairy and beverage applications.
