Burkert Fluid Control Systems has launched the 8175 ultrasonic level transmitter, offering continuous level measurement up to 10m across complex tank shapes.

The type 8175 incorporates an ultrasonic sensor and a transducer with a large eight-digit multi-language display in a splash-proof IP65 or immersion-proof IP67 housing.

It offers users a teach-in function for easy commissioning, and also delivers low total cost of ownership, according to the company.

Designed for use in water treatment, pharmaceutical, food and other hygiene-based industries, the 8175 is a non-contact filling transmitter that can be used in both open and closed vessels.

Simple to use, with its menu-guided operation and eight-digit alphanumeric display, the type 8175 delivers fast and easy commissioning with its integrated ’teach-in’ and ’simulation’ functions.

These allow different tank shapes (cylindrical, cubic and spherical) to be easily programmed via fixed default shapes, or at complex tank shapes step by step.

The simulation functions allow the system to be tested under dry-run conditions, and the resulting measured value can be shown as a level, a distance (in cm, m, in or ft), or direct, as a volume (litre, m3, Imp gal or US gal).

The type 8175 integrates a range of fail-safe features, including signal loss, power supply failure, and level or temperature alarms, which can be activated with an adjustable time delay.

In addition, a range of filter functions control the return echoes and automatically eliminate all interference due to elements of the vessel.

The 8175 transmitter is powered with 18-32VDC (optionally 115/230VAC) and features a three-wire 4-20mA output for direct control of a continuous control valve, interface to a PLC, or for monitoring.

Two optional 3A relays can be also configured as alarms or latched for automatic fill or empty operations.

Burkert offers the 8175 ultrasonic level transmitter together with process control valves as a complete, easy-to-control system.

The transmitter can be used with Burkert type 6123 solenoid valves, type 2030 diaphragm valves, type 2712 continuous Topcontrol system, Burkert 8644 valve islands and third-party vendor PLCs in one integrated, easy-to-commission system.
