The submersible depth and level transmitter has been designed for the accurate measurement of the depth and level of fluids for a wide variety of industrial and municipal applications and is available in three versions. The standard version(STD), the sludge version (SL), and the borehole version (BH). An output signal of 4-20mA is standard, along with in-head or remote amplifier with zero/span adjustment. The standard depth transmitter is fitted with a nylon nose cones to prevent sludge build-up. The bore hole transmitter is designed to measure depth and level in bore holes of 25mm diameter

In most applications the liquid is subjected to atmospheric pressure. To provide accurate electrical measurement it is important that readings are compensated to allow for any changes in atmospheric (barometric) pressure. This compensation is achieved by using a vented cable which the sensor to “breathe” to the atmosphere. This is done through a small nylon tube that runs through the cable which ensures that the output reading is relative to atmosphere. This is particularly important for the measurement of low levels of liquid, where changes in barometric pressure can significantly affect the true reading of level. For example, at high altitude where low atmospheric pressure is present.

Ultrasonic Level measurement – a non contact technology

Systems using ultrasonic sensors provide a cost effective sensing method with unique properties not possessed by other sensing technologies. By using a wide variety of ultrasonic transducers and several different frequency ranges, an ultrasonic sensor can be designed to solve many application problems that are cost prohibitive or simply cannot be solved by other sensors. Ultrasonic sensors continuously emit high frequency sound pulses inaudible to the human ear which travel away from the sensor, hit the surface of the target and are reflected back to the sensor. The sensor electronics measure the time taken by the signals to return after being reflected by the target surface.

Since the speed of sound is affected by air temperature, our ultrasonic sensors include a built-in temperature sensor. Level/distance measurements are automatically temperature compensated throughout the operating temperature range of the sensor.

Sigma has a variety of models available to satisfy the requirements of most demanding applications.
