Model 12400 SIL2 Digital Level Transmitter

The 12400 Series Level Transmitter from GE Energy is a reliable torque tube-type liquid level transmitter based on field-proven displacement technology using Archimedes’ principle of buoyancy.
The 12400 Series enables the level measurement, and low- and high-level switch functions to be managed by a single instrument, virtually eliminating the need for additional level switches.
All features and functions are easily accessible using the Masoneilan ValVue Communication Software or any other HART-compatible handheld or DCS, to configure, calibrate, and diagnose the instrument.

Features And Benefits

  • Integrated level transmitter and switch functions for single-instrument operation
  • Operable with Masoneilan ValVue software or DTM for reduced installation and start-up costs
  • Interoperability with HART-compatible handheld and DCS for flexible integration
  • SIL2 certified in accordance with IEC61508 per EXIDA, the 12400 Series transmitter, is suitable for use in safety instrumented functions.
  • Torque tube technology for a highly accurate instrument capable of measuring the liquid level of a fluid with unknown specific gravity
  • Surface turbulence and foam do not impede the displacer when installed in a chamber for excellent stability
  • Meets requirements of most installations with top, side, or bottom connections and a full rotation in the horizontal plane to accommodate process structures for installation flexibility

Common Applications

The 12400 Series can measure and transmit a 4-20mA signal corresponding to the level in a vessel or the interface of two liquids of different specific gravity. It can also act as a level switch. The 12400 Series is an excellent choice for severe operating environments including:
High temperature (wide process temperature range: -210 to +450°C or -350 to +850°F)
High pressure (wide pressure range: up to ANSI Class 2500)
