Two-wire loop-powered ultrasonic level transmitters with 4-20 mA output for level measurements for liquids, slurries, and bulk materials in open or closed (unpressurized) vessels up to 16.4 feet (5 meters). 12° beam angle. PVDF copolymer transducer for chemical resistance in a variety of applications. Good for process temperatures to 140°F (60°C). Available in general purpose (LU150) or intrinsically safe (LU180).
Siemens' SITRANS LU150 and LU180 are short-range integrated ultrasonic level transmitters for use with liquids, slurries, and bulk materials in open or closed short-depth vessels (from 0.8 to 16.4 feet). These two-wire, 4 to 20 mA loop powered transmitters feature an integrated ultrasonic transducer in PVDF copolymer, making them suitable for a variety of applications. The general purpose SITRANS LU150 is an ideal replacement for the Milltronics Probe with 4-20 mA output. The SITRANS LU180 has the same functionality as the LU150 plus intrinsically safe approval (CE cCSAus, ATEX, FM, CSA, IECEx, and NEPSI) for use in harsh environments.
Both SITRANS LU150 and LU180 include patented Sonic Intelligence echo processing algorithms to discriminate 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 and analog output.
If you need HART communications, see the Siemens SITRANS Probe LU240.
