1. APPLICATION
The SuperMini™ is a non-contacting ultrasonic liquid level transmitter; the transmitter comes
with scaleable 4-20 mA output, programmable relay and HART communication. This smart
level transmitter is well suited to measure most liquids under various process conditions and
can be programmed using the magnet supplied or optionally via HART protocol.

4. INSTALLATION
ATTENTION!
Before mounting the unit in its final position, make sure that the
programming points of the unit are accessible with the supplied magnet, the LEDs are clearly
visible and the level of the liquid can be changed between its minimum and maximum during
the programming session. If any of the above conditions are not met, the programming should
be carried out before mounting the unit in its final position. (See 5. Programming)
When mounted on a pipe, we recommend the use of the SAA-110 transparent pipe connector
that enables on-site programming.
r
Positioning:
The optimal position of the
SuperMini™ is between r=(0.2
to 0.4)d of the tank. This will
prevent unwanted interference
caused by dome-top tanks.
d
The sensor face has to be
parallel with the surface of the
liquid within ± 2°.
Obstacles:
d>ø 100
Wind:
Intense movement of air
may affect measurement
accuracy or cause unit to
become inoperative.
Vapors, fumes:
Vapors and fumes of
gases
may
radically
reduce the measuring
range of the device (e.g.:
chemicals, outdoor tanks
under sunshine).
L

No object should protrude into
the sonic beam of the device
(e.g.: ladder, baffle, etc.).
Foam:
Foam on the surface of the
liquid can make ultrasonic
measurement difficult or not
operate correctly.
Mount the device in a location
where foam is minimal or use a
stilling well.

Stand-off pipe:
The structure of the stand
off pipe should be rigid;
the inner rim where the
ultrasonic beam leaves
the pipe should be
rounded.
Temperature:
Excessive heat must be avoided (e.g. direct sunshine) to avoid inaccurate measurement.

Extending the cable:
−
When extending the cable, use a junction box. Shielding of the unit cable and that
of the extension cable should be connected and grounded at the end of the
extension cable.
−
Extend only wires required for the purpose of the application.
6. Programming
After performing electrical installation according to 4. the unit is ready for operation. For
ultimate temperature compensation accuracy, switch on the device 1 hour before
programming.
Programming can be performed in two ways:
•
On-site, using the liquid level as reflecting surface (only if the programming points
are accessible on the unit, the LEDs are visible and the level of the liquid can be
changed between the its minimum and maximum during the programming
session).
Off-site, using a flat object as reflecting surface (e.g.: table or wall).

The following features can be programmed using Touch-Magnet Programming with the
supplied magnetic screwdriver:
− Assignment of the 4mA analogue output to a required min. level / max. distance (E)
(factory default: XM max. measuring distance)
− Assignment of the 20mA analogue output to a required max. level / min. distance (F)
(factory default: Xm min. measuring distance)
− Error indication by the current output (factory default: hold last value)
− Relay switching differential (if not programmed the relay is for echo loss
indication)(factory default: echo loss indication, relay NO)
– Damping (factory default: 60 sec)
Note: Current output can also be assigned in inverted mode:
4 mA = 100 %, 20 mA = 0 %
ATTENTION! When using off-site calibration, distance between the reflecting object and the
unit must correspond to the required 4/20 mA values.
Touch-Magnet Programming is only possible if the SuperMini™ receives valid echo i.e.
“ECHO” LED is lit!
In case of SuperMini™ with HART communication (SCA - 3oo - 4) Touch-Magnet Programming is
only possible if the transmitter is in the “LEV" measuring mode (factory default).
The accuracy of the Touch-Magnet Programming is ±20 mm. Thus the relay switching difference
between “ON” and “OFF” must be greater than 40 mm.
Interpretation of LED statuses:
= LED is on,
= LED is blinking ,
= LED is off
= LEDs are blinking alternatively
The left-side LED symbol in the programming table below corresponds to the GREEN LED, while the
right-side LED corresponds to the RED LED of the device.
Programming:
Open up the supplied screwdriver to access the magnet.
When programming, put the magnetic part to one of the symbols:
magnet
screwdriver
A or
B according to the programming sequence
described below and check the LEDs for their status.

8. MAINTANENCE
The unit may require occasional maintenance of the sensor face by cleaning its surface,
especially where sticky, adhering liquid may splash on it. A thin layer of dirt may not cause any
trouble; however heavily fuming chemicals may reduce the efficiency of the sensor.
Equipment sent back for repair should be cleaned or sterilized by the User.
9. STORAGE CONDITIONS
Environmental temperature range: -35 ... +60°C. Relative humidity: max. 98 %
