Continuous Ultrasonic Level Transmitters From Siemens
Ultrasonic Level Transmitters From Siemens
Continuous Ultrasonic Level Transmitters provide easy-to-use continuous measurement. These transmitters offer superior reliability for level, volume, and flow applications in the water and wastewater, food, and chemical.
The Probe is a short-range integrated ultrasonic level transmitter, ideal for liquids and slurries in open or closed vessels.
The transducer is available in PVDF copolymer, making the device suitable for use in a wide variety of applications. The Probe is easy to install and maintain, and can be quickly removed for cleaning as required by the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries.
The reliability of the level data is based on the Sonic Intelligence echo processing algorithms. A filter discriminates between the true echo and false echoes from acoustic or electrical noises and agitator blades in motion. The ultrasonic pulse propagation time to the material and back is temperature-compensated and converted into distance for display, analog output and relay actuation.
SITRANS Probe LU is a 2-wire loop powered ultrasonic transmitter for level, volume and flow monitoring of liquids in open channels, storage vessels and simple process vessels.
The SITRANS Probe LU is ideal for level monitoring in the water and wastewater industry and chemical storage vessels.
The range of SITRANS Probe LU is 6 or 12 m (20 or 40 ft). Using Auto False-Echo Suppression for fixed obstruction avoidance, as well as an improved signal-to-noise ratio and improved accuracy of 0.15% of range or 6 mm (0.25"), the Probe LU provides unmatched reliability.
SITRANS Probe LU includes Sonic Intelligence® signal processing from the field-proven Probe and incorporates new echo processing features and the latest micro-processor and communications technology. The Probe LU offers two communications options: HART or PROFIBUS PA (Profile version 3.0, Class B).
The transducer on the Probe LU is available as ETFE or PVDF to suit the chemical conditions of your application. As well, for applications with varying material and process temperatures, the Probe LU incorporates an internal temperature sensor to compensate for temperature changes.
Key Applications: chemical storage vessels, filter beds, liquid storage vessels.
