Ultrasonic measurement


Ultrasonic level measurement is a highly cost solution for short and long-range measurement, even under difficult environmental conditions such as vibrations and dust. Ultrasonic level measurement is used in numerous industrial applications to monitor and control the level of liquids, slurries, and solids.

Ultrasonic Advantage

  • Easy to use and quick to configure – Graphical Quick Start Wizards guide you during setup.
  • Auto False-Echo Suppression – differentiates false echoes from true material level echoes.
  • Sonic Intelligence – our field-proven echo processing algorithms provide the most reliable performance possible.
  • Compatibility with Siemens Echomax transducers.

MultiRanger 200 HMI

Siemens ultrasonic controllers can be programmed to detect and display level and/or flowx and can provide three to six relay outputs or analog output.

The MultiRanger 200 HMI is an ultrasonic level controller for virtually any application in a wide range of industries. It can measure in one or two vessels, and can be used with various materials, including, water, municipal waste, acids, woodchips, or on materials with high angles of repose.
