    Shortening the cable Pointek CLS200 Standard, cable version CAUTION Possible only with the general purpose configuration; please verify against product nameplate. Preparation Determine the required cable length, and subtract that amount from the actual length, to find the excess length to cut off.
  • Page 102 Shortening the cable E.1 Pointek CLS200 Standard, cable version Steps 1. Unscrew the cable gland compression nut to relieve the sealing cone and release the cable. ① Cable gland compression nut ② Probe sleeve ③ Probe, lower assembly 2. Unscrew the probe sleeve from the lower assembly using two 17 mm (0.67") wrenches across the flat surfaces, as shown below.

    Make sure that no cable strands are pushed out of their position in the cable and that the cable is fully inserted. 5. Re-fasten the weight by tightening the three set screws. Pointek CLS200/CLS300 standard Operating Instructions, 05/2021, A5E47827796-AA...
  • Page 106: Application

    The relay and solid-state switch are interlinked: when the change in capacitance is greater than the setting at the trip point, the output switches. (For a diagram illustrating the relay and solid-state switch contacts, see Pointek CLS200 (Page 36) (for CLS200) or Pointek CLS300 (Page 42) (for CLS300).)
  • Page 107: Fault Signaling

    The following examples assume that the pump should be turned off in the event of a failure. If this is not the case in your process, please see the relay diagram on Pointek CLS200 (Page 36) (for CLS200) or Pointek CLS300 (Page 42) (for CLS300), and make the appropriate connections to suit your application.
