MCG 2420 Transmitter

Easy Retrofit Capability
The MCG 2420’s versatile design allows it to be easily installed into existing applications. The MCG 2420 can easily couple to the Shand & Jurs Model 92302 Liquid Level Indicator. The MCG 2420 can also couple to the Varec 6700 Liquid Level Indicator. Depending on which option is chosen, the MCG 2420 will come with the appropriate adapter kit for that specific liquid level indicator.

Patented Technology
The MCG 2420 utilizes absolute magnetic encoding which is the next step in L&J’s patented absolute encoding technology which has been used on the MCG 2000S, MCG 2000SS, MCG 2000SSI, MCG 2000SFI and MCG 2000MAX. L&J has replaced the foot and inch optical discs with foot and inch magnetics which provide much greater accuracy and reliability and also allows for the option of using a much smaller housing than previous offerings. The MCG 2420 now has an expanded range of 0-128 feet.

By using absolute magnetic encoding the number of parts required is greatly lowered in turn providing unmatched reliability. Just as with the previous generations of L&J transmitters, the MCG 2420 is completely unaffected by power failures in your tank farm without the use of batteries. When power is restored the transmitter will accurately reflect the current level, even if it has changed, without the need for additional calibration.

The MCG 2420 is a cost-saving and easy-to-install transmitter. It can display level with a resolution of 1/32″ (standard) for up to 85 feet of product. Data can be read via an optional remote LCD display or transmitted directly back to a control room. The remote display can be mounted tankside or in a remote location. Changes in liquid level are output to a 4-20 mA and/or digital signal.

The MCG 2420 is designed to connect to most standard float gauges. It utilizes L&J engineering’s revolutionary Absolute Magnetic Encoding for level detection and consumes very little power during operation.
