Automation Direct liquid level sensors

Automation Direct liquid level sensorsThe company has added the Flowline EchoPod and EchoSonic II lines of ultrasonic liquid-level sensors and transmitters to its product offerings. Constructed with PVDF transducers and NEMA Type-6P polycarbonate enclosures, the products are designed to replace float, conductance and pressure sensors that are prone to failure from contact with dirty, sticky and scaling media in small-, medium- and large-capacity tanks. Suited for chemical, water and wastewater applications, these general-purpose sensors are available with single- and multi-function capabilities including continuous level measurement, switching and control. The EchoPod DS14 liquid-level sensor features continuous level detection up to 4.1 ft.; a 48-in., nine conductor shielded cable provides connection to four programmable SPST output relays for switch, pump or valve control and fail-safety. The EchoPod DX10 ultrasonic liquid level transmitter provides continuous level measurement up to 4.1 ft.; a 48-in., 6-conductor shielded cable provides selectable 0-5 VDC, 0-10 VDC, or 976-2,000 Hz frequency signal outputs. The EchoPod DL10 ultrasonic liquid level transmitter provides continuous level measurement up to 4.1 ft.; a 48-in., 4-conductor shielded cable provides a 4-20 mA signal output for longer signal distances, up to 1,000 ft. The EchoPod DL series of multi-function liquid level sensors provides continuous level measurement of up to 4.1 ft., 9.8 ft., or 18 ft.; the 48-in. 9-conductor shielded cable provides a 4-20 mA signal output and four programmable relays for level switch or level control functions. The EchoSonic II LU series ultrasonic liquid level transmitters provide continuous level measurement up to 9.8 ft., 18 ft., 26.2 ft. or 32 ft. These transmitters are fitted with a 10-ft 4-conductor shielded cable to provide a 4-20 mA signal output. DSP auto adaptive filters enable plug and play operation, optimizing signal output filtering and obstacle recognition. Depending on model, the short 4-in. or 8-in. dead band maximizes measurable filling capacity.
