Before starting the installation, check the following:

  • Make sure that your installation site suits the Ex classification of the probe: see Table 1.
  • Review the hazardous area information in Using MGP260 series probes in hazardous locations and make sure that the conditions for safe use are met.
  • Review the wiring diagram included in this document for power supply requirements: MGP260 probes require a dedicated 18 … 30 VDC power supply. Note that in addition to the power supply input for the probe, each analog output must be externally powered.
  • Review the information in Pressure compensation input options and ensure that you are using a pressure compensation input source that matches the settings of your MGP260 probe.
  • Inspect the probe for any possible damage or dirt that could compromise the leak tightness of the device (for example, bent or punctured parts of the probe body, or dirt that prevents the connection box from closing fully).
  • When selecting the cable glands and plugs for your application, make sure they are Ex compliant.
The NPT threads of the probe can have sharp edges. To avoid injury when touching the threads, wear protective gloves.
The probe can cause a foot injury if dropped. To avoid foot injuries, wear protective shoes.
