SOUNDMAX® UW5000 Series is an ultrasonic non-contact levelmeter for continuous measuring. The wide variety of sensors suitable for various applications and wide measuring ranges make it possible to measure the level for various fluids and substances in many industries.
The combination of high efficient sensors and state-of-the-art signal treatment technology ensures the measurement in difficult conditions which would be disturbances for stable measurement. UW5000 offers either a sensor-and-converter integral type or remote type for your convenience.

Features

  • · on-contact and continuous level measuring
  • · Measuring for versatile fluids and solids like liquids, slurries, powders, granules, pellets, gravel etc
  • · High power sensors make it possible to measure as high as 60m height of powders
  • · The built-in temperature sensor compensates sound velocity change automatically to assure the accurate measurement
  • · Selectable 2-wire looped power or AC/DC power supply, and integral or remote type depending on your applications and installation conditions
  • · Provided with amplifying function to keep high signal/noise ratio and function to eliminate the influences from reflection-from-obstruction, UW5000s are used for many challenging applications
  • · Outputs of level, distance, volume, difference of two sensors and average of measured values
  • · The AC/DC power supply type has maximum 5 points contacts for such applications as pump control
  • · RS485 communication equipped with standard function serves for remote data acquisition and remote setting with PC with dedicated software
