A new standard for combined level and temperature controls
The combined level and temperature controls of Bühler Technologies: Nivotemp and Nivovent series are globally accepted products in the fluid power industries. The utilisation of the same flange pattern and the same standardised length and applying the breather/ filter units at the same time made these series well received within the fluid power community.
In consideration of the new VDMA recommendation 24574ff, Bühler Technologies, a German supplier of advanced accessories for power packs and lubrication systems, took the opportunity and revised the complete range of tank top level and temperature controls.
Top-of-the-line model - the Nivotemp and Nivovent series are the XP versions which now applied the standards in combined level and temperature controls at affordable cost.
Based on the standard components of the product line - the XP version allows to set all alarm outputs for both the level and the temperature from an external position even at empty reservoirs.
The microprocessor based temperature controller is equipped with a submenu which changes the display from °C to °F and is able to output the status of the monitored the level and temperature. If it is wished by the customer, the offset from stem length to the actual depth of the reservoir can be added and the level alarm points can be simply programmed by setting the distances required. As soon as the value is confirmed the display turns back to show the actual oil temperature. Further developments will provide an IO link for external communication and programming.
The same like all other Nivovent models, the XP version can be combined with the Fluidcontrolterminal of the Multiterminal for improved maintenance and/ or power pack design.
