IL. —Monitor Technologies LLC
is pleased to announce that on March 7, 2005
we will kick-off our 2005 web seminar program
with a 30-minute presentation entitled, “Researching
the Internet”. In this seminar you will
be given practical information to aid you in
using the Internet as a research tool. This seminar
is designed to help you obtain online results
for technical information fast, whether you are
a novice or an expert on the use of the Internet.
Internet has opened up a new world to millions
of people and enables you to be your own researcher
and find information critical to making decisions
that effect your professional career and personal
life as well. Yet many engineers look at the Internet
as one might look at a field of wildflowers. There
is a great deal of material out there, but you
still need to pick your way through the huge amounts
of weeds and pests to find what you want.
degreed engineer who has educated himself on how
to find information via the Internet will present
this seminar. The presenter has spent much of his
career as a consulting engineer using the Internet
as part of his business. In this 30-minute program
he will share with you what he has learned, providing
tools and techniques for identifying no-cost online
information sources. He will also provide advice
on sites that he has frequently used. This will
be invaluable to the occasional Internet surfer
who may need to locate information quickly, and
web seminars are a free educational service available
to anyone registered at the “For Engineers” section
of their website. If you are interested in attending
this kick-off seminar for 2005, go to www.monitortech.com,
click the “For Engineers” tab on the
home page, and follow the instructions to register.
If you are already registered with “For Engineers,
just click on Register for the Seminar shown under “Monitor
News” on the home page. You will receive
your confirmation and instructions on how to attend
the seminar by email.

- Leading Multimedia Point Level Application Guide
IL. —Monitor Technologies is pleased to announce
the final installment of our Point Level Interactive Product
Guide. This industry leading application and product selection
tool simplifies the process and helps eliminate misapplications.
provides an interactive multimedia review of mechanical diaphragm
and tilt switches. Along with CD # 1, 2, 3 and 4, this completes
the most comprehensive application and product review selection
tool ever produced for this type of products.
The Point Level Guide is a five-CD multimedia educational tool designed to
familiarize potential users with the various technologies used for point level
measurement of liquids, solids and slurries (rotary paddle, RF capacitance,
vibratory and mechanical sensors). Monitor’s unique Application Review
Software (CD#1) determines which of these technologies is recommended for any
specific user application, based upon information provided in an interactive
Question & Answer format.
offers the Point Level Interactive Guide free of charge as
part of its SecureCare customer service program. Monitor believes
it is as important to produce tools that help eliminate misapplications,
as it is to provide durable and reliable instrumentation.
new Interactive Point Level Guide CD is available through Monitor
and any Monitor Representative. You can request a copy from
the Monitor website at www.monitortech.com.

The TrueCap® Model MK-2
RF Capacitance point level probe is designed to provide a superior
and stable sensitivity threshold making it suitable for a variety
of powder / bulk solids and some liquid or slurry applications.
Advanced features of the Model MK-2 include: > Automatic immunity to material build-up on
the probe by its driven shield design > Push-button calibration > Enhanced temperature compensation > Maximized reliability via smart sensing algorithms
like “self-validating” fail-safe protection > Visible status LED on ordinary location units > Versatility through a variety of configuration
options including: hazardous location version, split architecture
design, quick-connect process connection, stub probe, cable extensions,
solid extensions, Nylon® probes, Ryton® - equiv. probes,
A practical application for the TrueCap would be to use this level sensor where
a residual material build-up on a different sensor would cause a false material
Principle of Operation for the TrueCap RF Capacitance Level
The vessel wall and the active probe element establish an impedance reference
between each other when exposed to air which has a dielectric constant of 1.
When materials with a dielectric constant greater than 1 are in close proximity
to the probe, the impedance of the sensing field between the sensor and the vessel
wall will change. Once the amount of change exceeds a threshold that was electronically
determined during the calibration process, an output relay will either be energized
or de-energized depending upon the position of the fail-safe selector on the
probe’s electronic circuit board. A change of as little as .5 pico-farad
is all that is necessary for the probe to sense the presence of material.
