About Smart Trak™:
Flowline’s Smart Trak™ is an adjustable mounting system for
installing multiple level sensors vertically within a tank. Mounted
through a single point at the top of the tank, up to 6 different sensors
can be located at any depth on Smart Trak. Flowline’s LC05 or LC06
compact junction boxes, and LC10, LC11 or LC30 compact relay
controllers are designed to be mounted directly to the 3/4" NPT fitting
at the top of the assembly. Smart Trak mounts vertically through a
standard 2" NPT tank adapter, or on a side mount bracket (such as the
LM50-1001). Unlike prefabricated “trees” or pipes, Smart Trak
allows you to experiment with sensor position to account for variations in the point of actuation of each sensor during process testing.
Track:
The track itself is approximately 1" square, and is from 2' to 12' long
depending on model. The track may be cut to length if desired. Four
separate grooves run the length of the track, one on each side of the
square. These grooves hold the sensor cars that attach to Flowline
sensors, and also serve to contain the sensor wire. The bottom of the
track is capped with an end cap. About 3/8" from the top of the track
is a hole for a locking pin that holds the track in position in the top fitting.

2" NPT to Smart Trak fitting:

A slot inside the fitting mates with the locking pin to hold the track in
position.
1.0"
(25mm)
Top compression fitting and wire gasket:
Once the track is in the 2" fitting, the wires pass through a thrust plate
and a thick rubber gasket, and the assembly is held firmly in place by
a top compression fitting that screws onto the coarse threads. The top
fitting has a 3/4" NPT threaded outlet for connecting to conduit or for
direct mounting of a Flowline LC05/06 terminal strip housing, LC10,
LC11, or LC30 series controller. Make sure the seal plug has been
installed for added protection.
Note: The wire gasket is not a vapor or water seal.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Step Two
About this Manual:
PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE MANUAL PRIOR TO
INSTALLING OR USING THIS PRODUCT. This manual
includes information on five different models of Smart Trak:
LM10-1201, LM10-1401, LM10-1601, LM10-1801 and LM101X01. The units are identical except for the length of the track.
User's Responsibility for Safety:
Flowline manufactures a wide range of liquid level sensors, controllers, and mounting systems. It is the user's responsibility to
select components that are appropriate for the application, install
them properly, perform tests of the installed system, and maintain
all components. The failure to do so could result in property damage or serious injury.
Proper Installation and Handling:
Use a proper sealant with all installations. Never overtighten the
components. Always check for leaks prior to system start-up.

Material Compatibility:
The track, end cap, wire retainer clips, bayonet adapter and sensor
car for all the LM10 models are made of glass filled PP
(Polypropylene, a polyolefin). The sensor car locking bolt and
screw are made of PCTFE (polychlorotrifluoroethylene, a fluoroplastic), the top compression fitting, thrust plate, locking pin and 2"
NPT fitting are made of PP and the O-ring is made of Viton (a fluorocarbon). The wire gasket is made of Neoprene, the seal plug is
made of Santoprene and both have a silicon gel for lubrication.
Make sure that the application liquids are compatible with the
materials that will be wetted. To determine the chemical compatibility between the components and its application liquids, refer to
the Compass Corrosion Guide, available from Compass
Publications (phone 619-589-9636).

Cable
Temperature and Pressure:
Smart Trak is designed for use in application temperatures up to
90° C (194° F). It is not designed for pressurized applications due
to the wiring that must travel through a gasket at the head.
Wiring and Electrical:
Electrical wiring of any liquid level control system should be performed in accordance with all applicable national, state, and local
codes. Take care not to cut or break the outer insulation jacket of
wiring that may be immersed while routing cables in the Smart
Trak system. Such breaks of the liquid seal of the sensor system
may lead to component failure.

Flammable, Explosive and Hazardous Applications:
Smart Trak may be used within flammable or explosive applications
only if the associated components are rated intrinsically safe for
such use. In hazardous applications, use redundant measurement
and control points, each having a different sensing technology.

Make a Fail-Safe System:
Design a fail-safe system that accommodates the possibility of
transmitter or power failure. In critical applications, Flowline recommends the use of redundant backup systems and alarms in addition to the primary system.

Step Five
Sensor car and bayonet adapter:
Smart Trak™, In-Tank Installation:
The sensor car assembly is the heart of the Smart Trak system. It
slides in the grooves of the track, and is locked into position by a plastic bolt and screw. The bayonet to 3/4" NPT adapter has a female 3/4"
NPT fitting on one end where the sensor (not included) will screw in,
and a bayonet fitting on the other end that attaches it onto the sensor
car with a slight turn, with an O-ring in-between to provide tension
for the push-and-turn connection.
Flowline's Smart Trak mounting system is an in-tank fitting, which
enables users to install any technology, along the entire length of
track. Smart Trak may be installed thru the top wall of any tank or
flange, using a standard 2" NPT tank adapter or blind flange. If tank
top is not available, Flowline's side mount bracket, LM50-1001,
enables Smart Trak to be installed directly to the side wall or lip of the
tank.

Determine the Proper Wire Length:
Don’t make the mistake of trimming the sensor wires too short before
the process is tested. If the sensors might need to be lowered in the
future, leave sufficient slack in the wires to allow for future adjustment. This extra wire may be stored in the bottom of the terminal strip
housing, or elsewhere above the compression fitting.
