Introduction
LTU-2000 Series:
Point Level Switch
Omega's LTU-2000 Series use a piezo-electric crystal that enables the switch to vibrate
at a fixed pre-defined resonant frequency. When the tuning fork is submerged in the
medium the frequency at which the switch is vibrating, changes. This change is detected
by the unit’s electronics and is converted into a switch output (either relay or PNP/NPN
depending on the model).
The red LED in the housing stays blinking when the LTU-2000 is in contact with the
product. The same light stays on continuously when there is no contact with the product,
giving a positive indication at all times that the LTU-2000 is working.
All models are made with 316 Stainless Steel and are available with ECTFE or epoxy
coatings and hygienic fittings for sanitary applications. Standard versions can operate at
temperatures up to 80ºC (176ºF) and higher temperature versions can operate at
temperatures up to 120ºC (248ºF). All models (except the mini-versions) have adjustable
time delay adjustment of 1, 5, 10 or 20 seconds and also have a Wet/Dry selection for
both High and Low level application requirements.
Features
Unaffected by variations in density, conductivity, dielectric constant or viscosity
Unaffected by foam, tank agitation or vibration
Available in Threaded, Sanitary and Flanged connections
Available with customized length options to best suit your application
All 316SS body and wetted parts, ECTFE coating when necessary
Adjustable response time (from 1 to 20 seconds)
Relay and Transistor outputs available

Installation
Confirm that the wire connections are correct
and that the available power supply is
compatible with the LTU unit.
(Fig.1)
Verify that the operating pressure and
temperature of the process corresponds to the
operating parameters of the LTU unit.
The LTU can be installed at any angle of the pipe or
vessel to detect the presence of liquids.
Verify that the forks are inserted into the medium
until the proper point within the vessel and that
they stay clear from the inside walls (Fig. 1 and 2).
Ensure that the conduit is facing downward and
makes a U-turn on the bottom of the cable to avoid
moisture from entering the housing enclosure
(Fig.3).
(Fig.2)
For proper installation of the LTU use the mark as a
reference for correctly positioning the forks. It is
recommended that the correct orientation be used
to avoid build up between the forks (Fig. 4).

Handling
Fig. 1
Seal the thread with Teflon tape before
installation (Fig. 1).
Do not thread the unit into the vessel, or turn it,
by the housing (Fig. 2).
Fig. 2
Use the correct tools during the installation of
the LTU (Fig. 3).
The LTU should not be dropped or suffer any
impact or fall that could damage the electronics,
coating or the forks of the probe (Fig. 4 and 5).
Periodic visual inspection of the LTU is required to
check for corrosion or deposit build-up. If deposits
are found, clean the sensor to ensure optimum
performance.
Fig. 3
Fig. 4
When cleaning the Forks use a soft brush to
ensure that the coating or polishing is not
damaged or scratched.
Fig. 5
Do not alter or bend the shape of the forks ( Fig. 6).
