Technological Highlights

Simple and intuitive operation

  • Compact field probe with integrated transmitter
  • Quick-Start menu for effective, fast and easy to use start-up
  • Continuous self-monitoring through the unique and unrivalled cosmic radiation control by Berthold

 

State of the art technology

  • SIL 2 or SIL 3 with homogeneous redundancy versions available
  • Process connection via HART
  • Patented 4 ... 20 mA current output
  • High immunity to interference (SIL standard)

Safe for critical processes

High reliability is supported by important diagnostic functions, such as permanent monitoring of the detector functionality by crosschecking the cosmic background radiation and much more. This guarantees outstanding operational safety.
Cosmic radiation control also makes it possible to keep the required source activity very low. Berthold's LB480 SIL model is unique in the radiometric gauge market   for being certified for density and low level switch measurements, in addition to high level switch and continuous level measurements.

 

SIL certified option available

The SENSseries LB 480 detectors are certified for use in SIL2 applications. SIL3 is achieved by adding an identical redundant SIL2 detector for homogenous redundancy. The certificate covers all measurement applications, from high level or low level alarms to continuous level and density measurements. Thus the safe measurement of critical processes is guaranteed.

Highly sensitive measurement systems

Berthold density measurement SENSseries detectors offer optimal sensitivity and extremely high measurement accuracy. This makes it possible to work with very low source activities - a big advantage in terms of shield costs and radiation protection measures.

More about sensitivity

Faster detection with the Speedstar Feature

The LB 480 SpeedStar can be used where reaction times in the millisecond range are required. While standard measurements calculate a new measured value every 500 ms, the Speedstar version with a measuring time of 50 ms is 10 times faster. This allows very fast object recognition, e.g. detecting the beginning of a steel plate being moved at a relatively high speed on the roll conveyor, measuring a density profile on pipes or plates detected directly during extrusion, detecting plugs traveling down pipelines, and the liquid level inside bottles while the bottles are still being transported.
