Introduction
LVCN6000/7000
Capacitive Point
Level Detection
The LVCN Series are capacitance switches ideal for High/Low level detection for
liquid, solids, granular materials and pastes. These units can also detect level
without being in contact with the product through a sight glass. Unlike other
capacitance probes, the LVCN6000/7000 can detect conductive, non-conductive or
low dielectric materials with extremely accurate performance without requiring an
external reference or installation in a metal vessel.
Both models can be made with cable or rod rigid stainless steel giving more flexibility
to complex applications.
Technology
The sensor operates in a manner that is similar to a simple capacitor. A high
frequency oscillator is located within the tip of the probe. When the tip of the probe
comes in contact with the medium, the frequency of the oscillation reaches a preset
point and the detection circuit signals the switch to change state.
Features
No Moving Parts – Rugged Construction
Highly customizable:
POM (Polyoxymethylene), PTFE or PVC Sensing Tip
Extended Lengths with both Rigid 316 rod or Cable
Threaded, Flange or Sanitary Process Connections
Available in DC or Universal Power Supply versions
Almost completely immune from build-up, coating media aggressive products
Easily applied in a wide range of applications/industries such as: water, oils,
corrosives, solids, powders, grains, conductive as well as non-conductive medias.

Installation
Installation
Verify that the location the probe is to be mounted
is clear from the stream of product (Fig. 1).
Fig. 3
500mm
When installing more than one probe in your
process, verify that they are separated by a
minimum distance of 500mm (Fig. 1).
Fig. 2
The tip of the probe should slightly point
downward ( when possible) so that if there are any
excess of product it will easily slide from the probe
(Fig. 2).
When installing from the top of the tank confirm
that the tip of the probe has cleared the side of the
vessel at least 500mm (Fig. 3).
When installing the sensor directly to the tank
make sure that the rod extends beyond the inner
wall of the tank, by as much as possible, so that
internal build up or other debris does not interfere
with the sensor's performance (Fig. 2 correct Fig.
4 incorrect).
08
500mm
Material falling onto the probe can cause damage
or switching errors. If this is unavoidable, it is
recommended that a protective shield be installed
above the probe to protect it. The shield is also
recommended when the probe is use for a low
level switch or in the outflow of the product (Fig. 2).
Shield
500mm
Fig. 1
Fig. 4
Installation
For probes with cable extensions, installation
should be from the top of the tank. It is also
recommended that for these probes the process
shouldn't have any agitation as this can cause
fluctuating readings or damage to the probe
(Fig. 5).
Fig. 5
The LVCN with rigid rod is recommended for
applications that have turbulence or vortices
throughout use (Fig.6).
Ensure that the conduit is facing downward to
avoid water from entering the housing (Fig. 7).
Before installing the probe, ensure that the
available power supply is correct.
Fig. 6
Verify that the probe has been wired as per the
instructions on page 7.
Verify that the operating pressure and
temperature of the process corresponds to the
operating parameters of the probe.
The probe must be installed utilizing the type of
connection provided.
Caution:
The Capacitance Probes Series will not work
properly in viscous, coating mediums with high
salt content (high di-electric), especially when
mounting from the side of the vessel. Sitron does
not recommend using this product in this type of
application unless otherwise specified.

Calibration
1. Turn both potentiometers (P1 and P2) fully
counterclockwise before you begin (Fig. 1).
3. With the vessel empty (or the medium not in
contact with the sensor), turn the sensibility
potentiometer (P1) clockwise until the yellow
LED (L3) turns On. Mark that location on the
electronics' label using a pencil. If this LED (L3)
does not turn on, mark the maximum position on
the label with a pencil (Fig. 2).

2. Install the probe and power it on. The L1 green
LED should be on.

4. Fill the vessel until the medium is in contact
with the sensor.
5. Turn the potentiometer (P1) counter-clockwise
until the yellow LED (L1) turns Off. Mark the
location where the yellow LED shuts off on the
electronics' sticker using a pen or pencil. If the
LED does not turn Off, leave the potentiometer
completely turned counter-clockwise (Fig. 3).
6. Now that you have marked minimum and
maximum settings for your particular application,
turn the sensibility potentiometer (P1) clockwise
half way between the two pencil marks. This point
should be the ideal setting where the probe is
neither too sensitive or not sensitive enough.
This method of calibration should also prevent
false alarms.
Delay
Adjust the delay time from 0,1 to 20 seconds
by setting potentiometer P2.

Handling
Probes:
Seal the thread with Teflon tape before
installation (Fig. 1).
Fig. 1
Fig. 2
Do not turn or handle by the housing when
tightening the process connection. However, the
housing is suitable to be reoriented by once the
process connection has been tighten.(Fig. 2).
Fig. 3
Use the correct tool during installation (Fig. 3)
The probe should not be dropped or suffer any
impact or fall that could damage the electronics or
the plastic tip of the probe (Fig. 4 and 5).
Fig. 4
Periodic visual inspection of the probe is required
to check for corrosion or deposit build-up. If
deposits are found, clean the sensor to ensure
optimum performance.
Fig. 5
When cleaning the rod use a soft brush or any
other similar object.
