RT 450.01 Controlled System Module: Level Show data sheet (pdf file) Print page
Technical Description

  The RT 450.01 consists of a clear plastic level tank as the principle element and uses water as the working medium. The tank is set up in such a way that it is hermetically sealed if all taps and valves are closed. This enables experiments to be performed with the tank under internal pressure.  For safety, the level tank is fitted with a safety valve and is enclosed in a transparent plastic protective sleeve. The tank includes fittings for the attachment of a pressure sensor (RT 450.31) or a level sensor (RT 450.35). It is installed in the base module RT 450. A control valve (e.g. RT 450.21) and a controller (RT 450.10) complete the control loop.


Learning Objectives / Experiments
- setting up a level control loop
- comparison of different sensors for level measurement
- level control against trapped-air cushion
- level / flow cascade control (with RT 450.02)

* Main element in constructing a level control loop
