Press Release Summary:
Loop-Powered BA220 accepts 4-20 mA signal from level sensors, including pressure transmitters, ultrasonic sensors and capacitance probes. It has 7-digit LCD display with programmable offset to account for contents remaining in tank when measurement level is 0%. Accuracy is 0.5% of full scale. Non-linearity correction table allows the monitor to be programmed to fit most vessels, including cylindrical tanks, bullet-shaped tanks, and hoppers.

Barton's Loop-Powered BA220 Level Monitor Displays Both Level and Tank Contents on a Large LCD Display
City of Industry, CA (Feb. 15, 2002) -- Barton's BA220 Level Monitor accepts a 4-20 mA signal from a wide range of level sensors, including pressure transmitters, ultrasonic sensors and capacitance probes. The unit displays both level and tank contents on a large "easy-to-read" 7-digit LCD display with programmable span. A programmable offset is available to account for contents remaining in the tank when the measurement level is 0%. Accuracy of the monitor is 0.5% of full scale. Intrinsically safe certification is provided.
The monitor is powered entirely from the 4-20 mA current loop - no need for external power or batteries. Solid-state, opto-isolated DC relay outputs provide up to four level alarms, and a 25-point non-linearity correction table allows the monitor to be programmed to fit most vessels, including cylindrical tanks, bullet-shaped tanks and hoppers.
Constructed of NEMA 4X (IP67) watertight polycarbonate, enclosure dimensions are 3.8"H x 5.9"W x 1.6"D (97mm H x 150mm W x 41mm D), and can be wall, pipe or panel-mounted. An optional DIN rail-mounted relay module is designed to be mounted away from the monitor. Its four electromechanical relays can be connected to the monitor's open collector outputs for switchable AC outputs.
Complete product specifications are provided in a brochure which is available on Barton's website at www.barton-instruments.com.
