Endress+Hauser Waterpilot Series Submersible Level Sensors from AutomationDirect

April 13, 2023

AutomationDirect has added Endress+Hauser Waterpilot series submersible level sensors to their growing lineup of liquid level sensors. These sensors measure level by continually sensing the hydrostatic pressure produced by the height of liquid above the sensor, providing a 4-20 mA output signal compatible with PLCspanel meters, data loggers, and other electronic equipment.

The Waterpilot FMX11 series is ideally suited for freshwater applications and features a slim 22mm diameter stainless steel housing and a sensor diaphragm protection cap. These sensors are NSF certified for drinking water applications.

The Waterpilot FMX21 series is suited for wastewater applications, offering an easy-to-clean, flush-mounted, process-isolating sensor diaphragm, a rugged 42mm diameter stainless steel housing, and a diaphragm protection cap. These sensors include FM hazardous location approvals for intrinsically safe applications.

Both styles have sensing ranges up to 2 bar (66.9 ft of water column) and are fitted with a shielded cable containing an atmospheric vent tube and a tough abrasion and UV resistant TPE jacket.

Waterpilot Accessories

Available accessories include terminal boxes for humidity and climate protection, weights to reduce measuring error by preventing sideways movement, suspension clamps for easy mounting, and cable shortening kits to easily shorten the cable and vent tube.

The new Endress+Hauser NSF certified FMX11 series submersible level sensors start at $509.00 and the FM approved FMX21 series starts at $997.00. These sensors are UL Listed, CE marked, RoHS compliant, and come with a 1-year warranty.
