GENERAL DESCRIPTION

FEATURES

The Gladiator Smart Admittance Switch


is a third generation, state-of-the-art
level probe, designed to operate in
tough industrial environments. The
probe of the Admittance Switch forms
one plate of a capacitance circuit, with
the vessel wall making the second plate.
The dielectric constant of the product
between the probe and the vessel wall
will cause a capacitive change as the
level approaches the probe, and the
output will switch in response. A special
circuit is used to ignore product build-up
between the sensing probe (active element) and guard, and also between the
guard and vessel wall. The output has
adjustable hysteresis and delays for on
or off switching.

A test function is available to remotely


confirm the probe integrity by switching
the relay contacts.

The Gladiator Smart Switch Series


includes communications
flatten roofcapability for
remote adjustment, control and monitoring.

Excellent immunity to product build-up


Excellent temperature stability - no

> 100mm

Principle of Operation
The dielectric constant of the material
in the vessel will be different to that of
air. When the material comes near or in
contact with the probe an admittance
change will occur. The resonant frequency of the internal oscillator will then
change. The relay will switch when the
frequency reaches the user selected
Switch Point value.

MOUNTING
Probes can be mounted from the top,
side and bottom.

between the probe and wall to allow for


build-up of material occurring on the
wall.

Points to consider when mounting:

See note

A. Material Infeed Clearance


Install the probe away from the infeed to
minimize the influence of build-up and
impact forces, and to avoid false triggering from product flow.

E. Side mounting
It is highly recommended to install any
side mounted probe at a downward
angle of 30-45. Use a protection plate
for side mounting where the probe may
be subject to impact strain or collapsing
material.

B. Wall Clearance
Install the probe far enough away from
the wall to prevent the probe or cable
from coming into contact with the vessel
wall. Avoid creating a confined area
where material could build-up over time.

F. Bottom mounting
Bottom mounting is not recommended.
Only mount from the bottom if no buildup of material occurs. If low level mounting is required, suitable options are
shown in the diagram on page 10.

See note
C. Nozzle Clearance
Where possible, ensure the probe guard
has at least 100mm clearance from the
nozzle.

CORRECT MOUNTING NOTES:


(Refer to picture on page 10)
Select correct probe for high temperature applications.
Allow adequate air flow for cooling extensions dissipate heat.

Correct Mounting in a Nozzle

INCORRECT MOUNTING NOTES:

Incorrect mounting because the

Recommended 50mm (2)

probe is too close to the wall or roof.


Positioning too close to a wall or roof
will limit probe sensitivity. Material may
build-up between the probe and the
vessel.

min. 100mm (4)

D. Top mounting
When top mounting, ensure adequate
clearance is provided between probe
and wall. Avoid creating a confined area
where material could build-up over time.
In the case of cable probe versions,
ensure enough clearance is provided

Incorrect mounting because the

probes guard is mounted inside the


nozzle. The correct arrangement is for
the guard to protrude out of the mounting
pipe at least 100mm. Product will buildup in the nozzle.

FLEXIBLE CABLE PROBE ADJUSTMENT


Notes for adjusting probe rope length
The Gladiator rope type probe can be
altered to any sensing length between
approx. 750mm and 3m by cutting down
from the standard sizes as required.
If a new rope is to be used, the rope
should be cut to:

465mm (18.3)

Cable probe length - 549mm = new wire rope


length (total sensing length - 549mm)
For example, within a 1000mm (1m) cable:
1000 = [rope + 549]
So rope length = 451mm

1. Mount the unit in its actual position.
(See mounting procedure - pages 9-10)

Wait for at least 10 sec. then switch the


mounting calibration switch to OFF position.
The blue LED should turn off after a short
time. The Blue LED will stay on if there
was a calibration error. If this is the case
please check that the probe is not touching
the product or the mounting, then try the
calibration again. If mounting calibration was
successful the blue LED should be off and
the Green LED should blink every 2 sec.

Make sure that external ground wire is connected between the outside ground screw on
the Gladiator housing and the roof/wall/side
of the silo/tank/vessel/chute. (For non metallic tanks make sure that external ground
wire is connected between the same outside
ground screw on the housing and the general plant ground potential).

Unit is now able to cancel influence of


mounting and/or build-up and probe history
has been cleared.

2. Check where the actual level is relative


to the probe.
Make sure that product is not touching the
probe - ideally it needs to be > 500mm away.
(If the silo/vessel/tank/chute is very small
you must ensure that the material is as far
away as possible - it must not be touching
the probe).

6. Select the sensitivity.


There are two adjustments controlling the
sensitivity of the switch point:
6.1. The HI/LO sensitivity switch is used
to set your unit depending on the dielectric
properties of the product to be measured.
This switch sets the range of adjustment
possible with the sensitivity potentiometer.

3. Turn the power on.


The green LED will either stay on for 2 seconds then begin flashing or stay on permanently to indicate operation.
4. Select the required relay contact action.
The Relay can switch ON or OFF as the
product approaches the probe and switch
ON or OFF in response to an instrument
failure (for details see page 14). Set the relay
action selection switch position (FSL or FSH)
depending on your requirements.

If the material to be detected has a lower


dielectric constant than 10 - set the switch to
HI (ON) - default.
If material to be detected has a higher dielectric constant than 10 - set switch to LO
If you are not aware of your material dielectric constant set the switch to HI (ON)
- default.

5. Cancel influence of mounting and/or


build up.
Do not proceed with this step unless the
product is not touching the probe. Ideally the
level needs to be > 500mm away.

6.2 The sensitivity potentiometer.


Set the potentiometer according to your
requirements. A 12 oclock setting (50%)
- default, will cover the majority of instances
- for the remaining instances, turning the
potentiometer anti clockwise will decrease
sensitivity. Switch point will then occur with
the material nearer to the probe or more
in contact with the probe than before. The
reverse is also true.

Switch the Mounting Calibration switch to


CAL (ON) position. The Blue LED will blink
to indicate that mounting calibration is
now in progress.

7. Select the time delay
Set the required delay using the Delay
potentiometer. (Default is 0 sec. at minimum
position) Turn the potentiometer clockwise if
any delay is required. Maximum rotation is
of a revolution. Max delay is 20 sec. The
selected delay will be used for both an ON
delay and an OFF delay.*

The test function allows you to check the


functionality of the unit. Applying a ground
wire to the Test terminal will change the
state of the relay. It will hold this state until
the ground is removed, then it will change
back to the standard running mode.
If the unit was in a Fail mode then the relay
will not change status.

8. Test function (used to check for


malfunction of unit from remote position,
PLC, SCADA etc)

OFF (Default) Position: Fail safe output


function is selected. Test terminal (terminal
number 4 of Smart probe) will function as an
open drain drive. This can be used to drive a
relay or an active low PLC input to detect a
Fail condition. In normal operation mode the
Test terminal will output Zero Volts (Short to
GND). In Fail or unpowered mode the Test
terminal will be open circuit.

Select the desired Test function by switching


the Test switch (Default = OFF).
TEST (ON) Position: Test function is
selected. Test terminal (terminal number 4 of
Smart probe) is used as an input to the unit.

See page 18 for further information.

* Setting of different time ranges for the delay potentiometer for ON delay and OFF delay is possible using a PC connected via GosHawk2 software. By default, both will have the same time adjustment range
(20 sec max) and adjustment will result in equal ON delay and OFF delay.

build-up. The % reading has been zeroed with the existing process
conditions and probe history log has been cleared.
Select the Switch point (sensitivity)
The output relay will switch at the entered % value. The default value of
50% will be suitable for detecting most media. For detection of products
having low dieletric constant, select a lower % value and vice versa. A
higher % value will require the product to come nearer to the probe or
cover more of the probe before switching will occur. When the level falls
the relay will switch back at half of the entered switch point % value.
Select the Time Delay
Set the time to be used for both switch on and switch off delays
(default: 0.1 seconds). Maximum Delay is 40 seconds.
Select the required relay action
The Relay can switch ON or OFF as the product approaches the
probe and switch ON or OFF in response to an instrument failure.

Operation Setup Check


After final adjustment it is advisable to
check the performance of the probe
relative to your entered settings.
Ensure there is no mounting influence.
When calibrating the mounting of the
unit, there should be no product within
at least 500mm of the probe. After calibrating the unit the Sensor Value (%)
should read approximately 0.0% with
no product near or touching the probe.

A. You may choose to leave the Switch


Point at the default 50%. The Gladiator
will switch reliably without contact of
the material to the probe.
B. You may choose to adjust the Switch
Point to 100% to switch when the product contacts the probe.

Allow infeed to occur and note the Sensor Value (%) change (if there is any) as the level gets closer to the probe the
Sensor Value (%) number will increase
and continue to increase as the product
gets closer to, touches and covers the
probe.

By default the Switch Off % is set at 1/2


of the Switch Point. You may wish to
adjust this to a higher or lower number.
This is adjustable in the Advanced
Menu by selecting Switch Mode - Manual. You can then manually select your
Switch On and Switch Off values.

The Gladiator is capable of switching


repeatably and reliably without product
contacting the probe for a wide variety
of materials. Some very low dielectric
materials may need to touch the probe
to be detected.

In general, you should not choose the


Max Sensor % (Max) value nor the Min
Sensor % (Min) value as the Switch
Point.

The Sensor Value (%) will reach its


maximum after the probe is covered
- but the Switch Point can be set at any
value less then the maximum. It is recommended to select the set point more
than 10% below the maximum value
seen with material touching the probe.

If possible, always have the Switch On


% at a value of at least 10% less than
the Max Sensor % (Max) value and
Switch Off at least 10% more than the
Min Sensor % (Min).
If the % change on the display is too
small then the Display Span parameter
in the Advanced menu can expand the
display resolution (select a larger number - smaller raw range) and vice versa.
Changing the Display Span will change
Switch Point value.

For instance the following readings may


occur during filling:
