Description

For fill level measurements of aggressive media and in overpressure

the ultrasonic transducers of the new hps+ sensors are now fitted out - as standard - with a Teflon film. It is sealed with a FFKM O-ring against the housing made of 1.4571 stainless steel or PVDF. This ensures a high degree of resistance to aggressive media.

Fill level measurement in tanks

The hps+ sensors can be used for fill level measurement under normal pressure or in tanks and containers with an overpressure of up to 6 bar. Its special software filters also allow its use in containers filled from above or that have a stirring system.

Pressure-tight installation in a tank is undertaken by means of a 1“ threaded flange or a 2“ one in the case of hps+340.

Chemical resistance

and seal tightness were tested through being stored over cellulose thinner and 1,000,000 alternating pressure stresses. Cellulose thinner is extremely corrosive and has a high rate of penetration.

Two different output stages are available for four detection ranges:

2 switching outputs in pnp switching technology
1 analogue output with an additional pnp switching output

The hps+ sensors with switching output have three operating modes:

  • Single switching point
  • Two-way reflective barrier
  • Window mode

Two three-colour LEDs

always show the current state of the switching outputs or the analogue output.

With TouchControl

all configuration can be done right at the sensor. The easily legible three-digit LED display continually shows the current distance value and automatically switches between millimetre and centimetre displays.

Setting a switching or analogue output

can optionally be carried out by numeric input of the desired distance values, or using a Teach-in procedure. This permits the user to select the configuration method preferred. The hps+ sensors support synchronisation and multiplex operation and have extensive parameterisation options via LinkControl.
Further information on how to set up hps+ sensors can be found at mic+ sensors.

LinkControl 

consists of the LinkControl adapter and the LinkControl software and facilitates the configuration of the hps+ sensors via a PC or laptop with any conventional conventional Windows® operating system.
