Helium Level Indicator


  • 10 Segment Bar graph
  • Constant / pulsed time on
  • Pre-settable level trip
  • Variable AC Mains in

The AS Scientific Helium Level Indicator together with the appropriate probe, provides a means of measuring the level of liquid helium in a container. When the probe is immersed in the liquid helium, a voltage is developed across the probe which is inversely proportional to the depth of the liquid. This proportionality is indicated by means of a 10 segment bar graph measured as a percentage level. The AS Scientific Helium Level Probe consists of a very thin superconducting wire housed inside a stainless steel tube. At ambient temperature, the resistance of the wire is high. The Level Indicator provides an approximate current of 100 mA to the probe.
