Eddy-current mould level sensor

Application

Level measurement of steel into the mould of a continuous casting machine

Description

The XLEV sensor is based on electromagnetic eddy-current sensing technology, which allows measuring the distance to a metal surface. Designed by AVEMIS, it includes:

  • 1 sensor head (suspended or ledge type)
  • 1 hot area cable
  • 1 fully digital processing unit panel and touch screen HMI

Advantages

  • Ledge or suspended with the same processing unit
  • Measures the actual steel level
  • Full digital signal processing
  • Compatible with electromagnetic stirrers and brakes
  • Several heads designs for different caster situations (slab, thin slab, bloom, H-beam)
  • Fieldbus by Profibus-DP or Ethernet-IP

Options

  • 2-chanel processing unit (XPUP-2) also available
  • Possible distance from sensor head to processing unit up to 100 meters with no additional electronic
  • Robot manipulator to move suspended head in & out of the mould

Associated products

  • UCN advanced mould level controller
  • M-Type stopper valve (DEM9M-MQS120M)
  • DEM9B/P servo-actuator
