Magnetel Liquid-Level Transmitter


This transmitter is designed to fit Rochester model 6342 and 6360 Magnetel® Float gauges with 8" 3 to 97% dials.

General Information & Features

The model R6315-12 transmitter utilizes electronic circuitry to provide a current output of 4-20 mA, which is proportional to the liquid volume in a horizontal cylindrical storage tank. Transmitter should be used with intrinsically safe voltage input from a loop-power supply and safety barrier.

WARNING! This sensor is not to be used as the primary means of determining high or low fuel condition. It must not be used in the absence of redundant systems in critical applications where there may be significant safety risk or financial exposure in the event of fuel overfill or fuel exhaustion condition. This sensor is not to be used for tank filling.


1. Total resistance added to the line for voltage generation and redouts should be less than 495 ohms for proper operation with 25.5 volts, intrinsic safe limit for most barriers.

2. Digital liquid-level indicator cannot use or generate more than 250 VAC.
