MAGNETIC LEVEL INDICATOR
®
Worldwide Level and Flow SolutionsSM
Vector™ is a rugged, reliable and costeffective Magnetic Level Indicator (MLI).
Suitable for a variety of installations, Vector
has many basic features and is precisionengineered and manufactured to ensure a
long service life.
MLIs are widely used to replace highmaintenance
sight
and
gauge
glass
indicators and are increasingly used in
new applications. Optional switches and
transmitters are available to provide various
output signals for level control.

Principle of Operation
A float travels up and down in a chamber that is mounted to a liquidcontaining vessel. The float contains a magnetic assembly that
interacts with an externally-mounted visual indicator. As the float
follows the liquid surface or liquid-liquid interface, the magnetic field
causes highly contrasting flags in the visual indicator to rotate. The
result is a clearly defined representation of the liquid level in the vessel.
Features
•
Rugged, industrial-grade construction
•
Field adjustable visual indicator for convenient viewing
•
Continuous measuring range up to 500 cm (197”)
•
Compatible with electronic point switches and continuous level transmitters
•
Media specific gravity as low as 0,55
•
Shatter-resistant viewing window
•
Single magnet per flag to enhance float coupling effect and self-alignment
The Vector™ float contains high-strength alloy magnets that facilitate
a strong coupling with the externally-mounted visual indication, as
well as any switches or transmitters.
Every float is manufactured specifically for each application. Process
pressure, temperature, and media specific gravity are all factored into
the custom design.
The Vector™ high-visibility visual indicator is constructed
with quality materials and engineered for reliable
performance.
Each flag contains an alloy magnet that maximizes
coupling with the float. The flags are mechanically
limited to a half-rotation, which eliminates the possibility
of over-rotation common with other magnetic level
indicators.

CHAMBER MODIFICATION FOR MOUNTING OF OPTIONAL TRANSMITTER
Vector can be combined with various externally mounted accessories, including switches and transmitters.
For Jupiter transmitter, refer to digit 17 for temperature limitations and possible mounting configurations. Match up the Jupiter model code with the
MLI model codes 16 and 17.
If SIL enhanced Jupiter transmitter is required then use model Atlas with float diagnostics indicator instead of model Vector.
All transmitters and switches must be ordered separately.
Refer to pages 6 & 7 for additional information regarding accessories.
