The Pro Remote capacitance probe features a new housing with a triple-thread, screw-off cover that allows easy access to internal components and an FDA-recognized power coat finish. This housing also has dual conduit entries to simplify wiring and installation. Another new electronic feature is a dual time delay that allows the user to set flexible time delays for covered and uncovered conditions. This allows the user to set a probe to react either immediately or with up to a 30-second delay when it detects a covered or uncovered state. For example, the capacitance probe can be set to send an immediate alert when it reaches a covered state, but can be set to alert with a 15-second delay when it detects an uncovered state.
The split-component design of the Pro Remote allows the use of a capacitance probe in applications where a standard probe would fail due to high temperatures or extreme vibration. Like BinMaster’s other PROCAP capacitance probes, the Pro Remote provides high sensitivity and accurate level detection without the use of RF (radio frequency) signals, so it will not interfere with two-way radio communications or other electronic equipment in the plant. “Quick-set” calibration makes the Pro Remote easy to use, and a visual LED status light lets a user know if the probe is in a covered or uncovered condition.
