Enhanced Jupiter® – Magnetostrictive Level Transmitters

The Jupiter magnetostrictive level transmitter provides a 4-20 mA output proportional to the level being measured or Foundation fieldbus™ output.

Jupiter models are either externally mounted to a magnetic level indicator or inserted directly into a wide variety of process vessels.

Measurement Principle : 

A low energy pulse, generated by the Jupiter electronics, travels the length of the magnetostrictive wire. A return signal is generated from the precise location where the magnetic field of a float intersects the wire. A timer precisely measures the elapsed time between the generation of the pulse, and the return of the acoustic signal.
