THE Shorti range of ultrasonic level transmitters is capable of measuring liquid levels up to five metres and solids up to three metres.
Available through Specialised Industrial Systems , the Shorti is a compact unit, consisting of an integral transducer, keypad and LCD display, as a standard feature.
The transducer is available in PVC for normal liquid applications, or an optional PTFE transducer for the more aggressive liquids such as acid.
The whole unit is housed in a polycarbonate housing, rated to IP65.
The Shorti PVC unit is powered by 24V dc, with an analogue 4-20mA output. This unit can be used for continuous level measurement on most liquid level applications.
Programming of the unit is very simple. In setup mode, the Shorti displays a few simple questions on the LCD display, which is then entered by the user on the 5-key keypad.
In run mode, the user can, by just pressing a key, display the actual distance, mA signal, temperature (transducer has built in temperature compensations) or the echo size/strength.
Shorti SW unit is powered by 110V ac or 220V ac, with a programmable relay output. This unit can be used for a non-contact ultrasonic level switch, for point level control or for pump control.
This unit also can be used for continuous level measurement on most liquid level applications.
