DESCRIPTION
Model CLS Capacitance Level Switch provides reliable
point level measurement of solids, liquids and slurries in
metallic or non-metallic tanks and vessels. Model CLS
detects the presence or absence of material in contact
with the probe by sensing a change in the capacitance.
Electronics provide highly sensitive measurement
detection (requires less than a 1 picofarad shift from
ambient). State of the art technology ignores material
build-up on the vessel sidewall or along the probe
assembly. One time calibration is simple with a single
multi-turn potentiometer. Red LED on housing indicates
sensor status. Unit features an adjustable 1-30 second
time delay and a 5 amp, SPDT fail-safe relay output.
Model CLS can be mounted vertically or horizontally.
INSTALLATION
Location and Mounting
The probe should be located out of the direct flow of
material. The CLS is designed to mount utilizing a 1” NPS.
Grounding
An equipment grounding connection (earth ground) must
be supplied to the unit for safety and to insure proper
operation of the unit. The CLS uses earth ground as a
reference for calibration and detecting a covered or
uncovered condition.
A ground reference conductor is integrated within the
probe allowing operation of the unit in non-metallic
vessels. Installation in a grounded metallic vessel will in
some cases provide enhanced sensitivity.
Input Power and Field Wiring
The CLS operates from 115 VAC. Field wiring should
conform to all national and local electrical codes.
Terminals for the input power are labeled on the circuit

up on the terminals to unplug them.
FAIL-SAFE SELECTION
Description
Fail-Safe means that the relay contact positions are set up
so that in the event of a power failure the relay will deenergize to a condition that is deemed safe for the
application.
Fail-Safe High
Fail-Safe High means that the relay will be energized when
the probe is uncovered and will de-energize when the
probe is covered. In this mode, a power failure will cause
the relay contacts to indicate that the probe is covered.

RELAY TIME DELAY
The CLS has a single turn control for adjusting the time
delay from approximately 1 to 30 seconds. This is a time
delay for the output relay to change states after a covered
or uncovered condition is sensed. The COVERED indicator
light will immediately respond to a change in covered or
uncovered condition regardless of the time delay setting.
Minimum time delay, 1 second, DELAY control full counter
clockwise, CCW. Maximum time delay, 30 seconds,
DELAY control full clockwise, CW.
Fail-Safe Low
Fail-Safe Low means that the relay will be de-energized
when the probe is uncovered and will energize when the
probe is covered. In this mode, a power failure will cause
the relay contacts to indicate that the probe is uncovered.
CALIBRATION
A multi-turn CALIBRATE control is used to compensate for
the capacitance of the empty vessel and to set up the
desired sensitivity. A tool for adjusting the control is
provided on the inside of the lid of the CLS. When finished,
return the tool to its clip in the lid for future use.
Calibration Verification
Following calibration, the sensitivity setting that you have
set in should be checked by verifying that the CLS senses
a covered probe condition with your material.
Calibration Procedure
( Probe must be uncovered, material at least 2 feet away
from probe )
1. If the COVERED indicator light is OFF, turn the
CALIBRATE control counter clockwise (CCW) until the
indicator turns ON. If the COVERED indicator is ON
proceed with step 2.
2. Turn the CALIBRATE control slowly clockwise (CW) to
the point where the COVERED indicator just turns OFF.
Now continue to turn the control clockwise (CW) to the
desired sensitivity setting.
