Designed for reliable operation in extreme conditions, Hawkeye V detects plunger arrivals from up to three feet away, and operates within a temperature range of -40°F to +160°F. Extensive testing has proven that even a slow-moving, non-ferrous plunger won’t slip by the eye of Hawkeye V.
For utmost accuracy, Hawkeye V allows its user to adjust sensitivity levels easily with a built-in seven setting dial. Lower sensitivity to eliminate false detects caused by nearby equipment or tools. Raise sensitivity to increase visibility of a plunger that doesn’t fully enter the lubricator, or to detect well movements caused when a non-ferrous plunger enters the lubricator. Hawkeye V operates over a wide range of voltages, simplifying inventory management.
Hawkeye V Plunger Arrival Sensor is protected by a rugged weather-tight aluminum enclosure. Two hose clamps are included for easy and secure installation. Hawkeye V also features a built-in ½” NPT port to be used with an approved explosion proof rated gland.
Hawkeye V operates as a normally open dry contact. Simply connect the three wire interface to ground, signal, and power, and Hawkeye V is ready to detect any plunger. Hawkeye V uses a modern magnetic sensor chip as opposed to a traditional coil. This chip allows Hawkeye V to detect slow-moving, or even static, plungers. Due to this magnetic sensing “eye”, the plunger does not have to fully travel past Hawkeye V to be “seen”; allowing a wider range of mounting locations. This unique design provides additional advantages including the ability to control the sensitivity and provide a clean two second switch closure.
