Ultrasonic measurement


All Your Instrumentation Needs


Ultrasonic level measurement is a highly-cost effective 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


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

The MultiRanger 200 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.

Since the early 1970s, Siemens has been your partner in ultrasonic level measurement. This experience matters. The MultiRanger 200 ultrasonic level controller has been a star for decades – now it's time to meet the better, easier-to-use, enhanced MultiRanger 200.
