Jerguson® Magnicator® Transmitters & Switches

Transmitters

MTII 4200™

4200

The MTII4200 precisely senses the position of the Magnicator float by applying a short 1.5μs pulse to the sensing element. This pulse creates a magnetic field around the sensing element. When the float’s magnetic field and the sensing element’s magnetic field intersect, a twist occurs in the sensing element.  Based on the time between the initial pulse and the detection of the corresponding twist, the location of the float magnet can be precisely calculated.

  • CSA and ATEX approvals optional
  • Electronics housed in NEMA 4X, 7 enclosure

 

RST2™

rst2

The RST2 sensor is a chain of magnetic reed switches and resistors mounted within a heavy wall stainless steel tubing assembly. As the float within the Magnicator responds to liquid level change in the chamber, the float actuates adjacent reed switches. The reed switch and resistors provide a varying resistance output. It is this output that is measured by the RST2 electronics module, as an indication of liquid level. The RTS2 transmitter will provide a 4-20 mA signal proportional to the liquid level indicated by the Magnicator.

    • Class I, Division 1 Groups B, C, D
    • Class II, Division 2 Groups E, F, G
  • Electronics housed in NEMA 4X, 7 (Groups B, C, D) and IP 66/67 enclosure

 

Switches

SAS-16™ – Snap-Action Switch

 

saswjuncboxThe switch mechanism is based on a unique Jerguson tri-magnet design where the snap action is accomplished by the utilization of magnetic repulsion.  The magnet mounted in the float causes the secondary magnet to rotate as it passes up and down. The switch magnet is repelled by the secondary and snaps to the opposite side. This causes the cradle to pivot, moving the push rod which operates the switch contacts.  The result is positive snap action interlock switching – no springs…no cams…no problems.
