Intelligent Level Sensor with Integrated Transmitter

Aug 05 2013

The new i-Series sensors by NIVUS (Germany) stand out for their robust design and very easy operation. An important benefit of the new sensors is the quick and easy set-up. Thanks to the sensor-integrated transmitter and pre-set measurement range steps it is possible to directly connect the sensors to PLCs, data loggers and other systems without the need for additional programming expenses. Moreover the sensors are suitable for use in extreme environments. A special encapsulation allows to maintain a protection rating of IP 68. The sensors additionally fulfil the requirements for use in Ex areas Zone 1 and 0.

Another advantage is the very high accuracy of the measurement results. The unique DATEM echo signal processing (Digital Adaptive Tracking of Echo Movement) dynamically follows the useful echo, continuously masking out static as well as moving false echoes. Grease rims building up, fixed constructions with irregular adhesions or manhole steps are detected automatically and will be masked out. Moreover the sensors provide high operational reliability.

The innovative energy concept featuring lowest possible start times and measurement intervals allows unrivalled lifetimes for independent and battery-powered data loggers.

The sensors can be used in any place where levels, distances, and volumes of liquids and bulk solids need to be measured.

Typical applications: Measurements in the water and wastewater area as well as in industry; Stormwater treatment facilities; Pump stations; Level measurement in rivers and channels; Flow measurement on weirs and Venturi channels; Volume measurement in tanks.
