Burkert Type 8177 Ultrasonic Level Sensor Transmitter
The Type 8177 is a non-contact ultrasonic level measuring device, designed for continuous level measurement in open or closed vessels. The unit is suitable for liquids, but also for solids, in virtually all industries, particularly in water and waste water management.
Ultrasonic level transmitters have no moving parts, and therefore they can measure level without making physical contact with the fluid or object. This characteristic of the ultrasonic level transmitter is especially good for measuring levels in vessels with corrosive or hazardous chemicals. Accuracy of the instrument is best for continuous level within a process control loop, offering sophisticated level monitoring of a system. The transmitter provides an analogue output that correlates the distance from the sensor to the level in the tank converting this signal to a 4-20mA.
Suitable applications include: continuous level monitoring, sludge containers and tank level monitoring.
