(Whitman Controls: Bristol, CT) -- Whitman Controls, a 50-year veteran in the design and manufacture of custom sensors and controls, has launched the L96 Series Level Transmitter, a first-of-its-kind capacitive level transmitter with dual switch and sensor capabilities that is fully field-configurable by the end user.

The new L96 Series capacitance level transmitters provide highly accurate level measurement across a wide range of liquids and in industries spanning oil and gas, wastewater, industrial manufacturing, fluid processing, and food and beverage. The innovative devices are ideal in water systems, oil and petroleum tanks, chemical processing, refrigeration systems, and numerous other OEM applications where precise level measurement and real-time data communication are critical.

The fully configurable L96 Series transmitters come standard with an OLED display and Modbus RS485 protocol, and allow the end user the ability to select from a variety of analog outputs in the field ranging from 0–5 V, 1–5 V, 0–10 V, and 4–20 mA. Furthermore, the user can simultaneously configure a SPST latching relay for switching functionality at any desired set point on the measurement range.
