FOGRod Controller Options

10 ELECTRODE SYSTEM

10 Electrode FOGRod  - Liquid Indicator Transmitter (LIT) 

  • LIT designed specifically for use with FOGRod

  • Bright 10 LED level indication

  • 10 SPCO relay outputs - 1 per electrode

  • 24V DC supply MAX 4W so easily battery backed to provide crucial remote site information such as effluent level during mains fail events

  • A 4-14mA output (1mA per sensor) to transmit level information to a PLC, SCADA etc

  • 2 failsafe relay alarm outputs (cable cut, wiring error, cleaning required)

  • Wide sensitivity range (up to 200K Ohms) to extend use to very low conductivity water applications   

  • FOGRod and LIT directly replaces old products such as the MultiTrode probe and MTIC
