ABB has expanded its level measurement portfolio with the addition of the LLT100 laser level transmitter.

Specifically designed for industrial applications and harsh environments, ABB says the LLT100 enables precise measurement of any solid or liquid surface, including clear liquids from –40° to +60°C (-40 to +140°F), or up to 280°C (535°F) with a cooling tube.ABB launches laser level transmitter

It can be used in a range of applications, including the power industry, oil and gas and water and waste water.

In a statement, ABB said: “Offering a resolution of 5 mm, an accuracy of ±20 mm and an eye-safe, Class 1 laser beam with a divergence of less than 0.35°, the LLT100 can be used in low visibility conditions. Its range spans from 0.5 to 30 m for liquids, 0.5 to 100 m for solids and 0.5 m to 200 m for positioning applications with a reflective target.”

A rotating bracket and a swivel flange option allows precision aiming of the beam, while a laser pointer tool is used to provide a visual reference when aligning the LLT100.

The LLT100’s standard enclosure material is powder-coated aluminium, with 316L stainless steel as an option.
