Dwyer Instruments: Mark Series, Position Indicator/Switch/Transmitter
Flexible Design, Ideal for Corrosive Environments
The Proximity Mark Series is a line of position indicators with a selection of various output options. Four model styles make up the Mark series to cover almost any application. Standard models in the Mark Series have visual position indicators and are weatherproof, explosion-proof, and submersible. A large variety of outputs are available to fit specific applications. There is a choice of 1 to 6 switch outputs of 14 varieties including inductive sensors, high temperature switches, gold contact switches, hermetically sealed switches, and high current switches. Besides the switch outputs, the Series offers potentiometer outputs, transmitters, and HART® Communications. The units are purchased for either direct drive applications, such as rotary valves, or lever drive applications, such as linear valves. Adjustable visual indicator is standard on direct drive units that displays OPEN/CLOSED status and degrees.
A magnetic drive that completely seals the switch compartment from the atmosphere for maximum leak protection is utilized in the Mark 1. The Mark 3 uses the same magnetic drive of the Mark 1, but it can be used for multi-turn applications with 1 to 25 revolutions, such as gate valves. A through shaft drive is incorporated in the Mark 4 making the unit a lower cost alternative to the Mark 1 for applications that are not as demanding.
