Enhanced JUPITER® Magnetostrictive Level Transmitters


Jupiter® magnetostrictive transmitters provide a 4-20 mA output, proportional to the level being measured. JUPITER models are designed to attach quickly and easily, via standard clamps, to Orion Instruments® Atlas™ and Gemini magnetic level indicators or can be directly inserted into a wide variety of process vessels.
Packaged in an ergonomic dual compartment enclosure, the unit offers many features not found in typical magnetostrictive units today. The dual compartment design allows for separation of wiring and electronics and helps facilitate simple, easy installation and set-up for both top and bottom mount versions.
With a JUPITER magnetostrictive transmitter, an ORION MLI offers high accuracy and high linearity at a reasonable price.

Operating 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.
