PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION:

The AT100 is based upon the Magnetostrictive principle. The sensing tube contains a wire which is pulsed at fixed time intervals and the interaction of the current pulse with the magnetic field created by the magnetic float. This causes a tensional stress wave to be induced in the wire. This torsion propagates along the wire at a known velocity, from the position of the magnetic float and toward both ends of the wire. A patented piezo-magnetic sensing element placed in the transmitter assembly converts the received mechanical torsion into an electrical return pulse. The microprocessor-based electronics measures the elapsed time between the start and return pulses and converts it into a 4-20 mA output which is proportional to the level being measured.
