ABB – Nivel – Ultrasonic Level Transmitters

Ultrasonic Level Measurement features variable GAP technology for stable readings in the most challenging environments.

The KSONIK is the only ultrasonic level transmitter that uses dynamic GAP technology in order to locate the correct echo. The KSONIK utilizes the minimum amount of GAP (Gain, Amplitude, and Power) at every possible distance within the measurement range. This simply means that we reduce the power to give you the most accurate reading with a beam angle of only 3 degrees, and then enough power to push through the most dusty environments.


Customer benefits:

Ultrasonic Level Transmitters and Switches

KMICRO

The KMICRO is mounted on top of the vessel or tank. The microprocessor in the KMICRO fires an electronic pulse that the transducer converts into an acoustic pulse. The pulse travels to the level that is being measured and is reflected back to the transducer. The transducer then converts the energy back into an electronic signal and stops the counter in the microprocessor, which then knowing the speed of sound through the air, can accurately determine the distance. The powerful software removes false echoes and the electronic filter removes ambient noise.

FEATURES:

  • Up to 32 ft. / 10 m Measuring Range
  • Low Cost, Compact Level Transmitter with Integral Transducer
  • 128 x 64 Dot Matrix Display

KSONIK MICRO LP The KSONIK MICRO LP Ultrasonic Level Transmitter is designed to measure liquid (16 ft. / 5 m) levels. The range can be configured by the keyboard and display. The KMICRO LP is mounted on top of the vessel or tank.

The microprocessor in the KMICRO LP fires an electronic pulse that the transducer converts into an acoustic pulse. The pulse travels to the level that is being measured and is reflected back to the transducer. The transducer then converts the energy back into an electronic signal and stops the counter in the microprocessor, which then knowing the speed of sound through the air, can accurately determine the distance. The powerful software removes false echoes and the electronic filter removes ambient noise.

LST400 The LST400 is an Ultrasonic Level Transmitter capable of measuring liquid level or solid applications up to 50 ft. / 15 meters or flow rates in all types of open channel flow applications. The transmitter has a single 4-20 mADC analog output with HART 7 and five (5) relay outputs. A transducer is fitted to the top of a silo or tank, facing down towards the material being measured.

The transmitter’s microprocessor simultaneously fires an electronic pulse to the transducer and starts a timer. The transducer converts this electronic pulse to an acoustic pulse, which is directed toward the surface of the material being measured. When the acoustic pulse contacts the surface of the material, energy is reflected back to the transducer, which converts this reflected energy back to an electronic pulse. This pulse is sent back to the microprocessor, which stops the timer and determines the “time of flight” of the signal. By combining the speed of sound through air and the “time of flight” of the pulse, the microprocessor accurately determines the level of the product. Powerful software removes false echoes from the signal and electronic filters remove ambient noise.

FEATURES

  • Range to 50 ft. / 15 m
  • Isolated 4 – 20 mA Output with HART 7

   LST300 LST300 represents the future of level measurement. While using intelligent compact transmitters has always been attractive, certain limitations prevented their use in many applications. LST300 removes those old obstacles. Whether you have the risk of flooding or corrosive materials in the process, LST300 survive these conditions easily. With metal at the top and PVDF at the bottom, LST300 is the first compact ultrasonic to be resistant to corrosion on the entire instrument. Ingress protection approvals up to IP68 (optional) ensure the entire device can survive flooding.

LST300 combines the most advanced functions found on any ultrasonic in any class, in a compact form. Installation becomes easy thanks to the graphic echo display and advanced diagnostics. The false echo filtering algorithm combined with the best‑in‑class beam angle ensures easy installation in narrow areas with many obstructions. With through the glass technology, you never have to open the cover to configure the instrument. It is hard to believe that all this functionality is available on a device powered by only two‑wire loop power.

FEATURES:

  • Maintenance free, non-contact continuous level sensor
  • 2-wire instrument with HART digital communication
  • Up to 10 m measurement range
  • Wide temperature range of -40 to 85 ˚C

  • Beam angle as low as 5˚ with false echo filtering for narrow spaces
  • Easy installation with graphic echo display, advanced diagnostic and easy setup menu
  • Unique GAP technology ensures the best performance under any condition
  • IP66/67 and NEMA 4X (can submerge to 1 m depth for 30 minutes)

   LST100 Specifically designed for use on chemical tanks, ABB’s LST100 ultrasonic level transmitter offers low power, no dead zone, accurate measurement at an affordable cost. This non-contact, easy to install, chemically resistant device lets you keep track of the most expensive consumable on the pad site; chemicals. Accurate measurement of chemicals ensures that equipment operates most efficiently and prevents damage to other valuable on-site equipment.

Ultrasonic is the only non-contact level technology that can provide an economically viable solution for chemical tank monitoring. For simple liquid measurements, there is simply no other technology that can provide such high performance per dollar spent.
