Series ULT Ultrasonic Level Transmitter provides reliable,
accurate, noncontact measurement of liquid levels. Ultrasonic
non-contact technology offers no moving parts to wear, jam, corrode, or get coated like contact technologies. Mapping software
makes effective measuring surface only a 3˝ diameter column.
No concerns with ladders, pipes, or other tank intrusions in the
remaining sound cone. Unit is FM approved explosion-proof
making it ideal for use in hazardous locations. The ULT features
easy programming with 6 digit LCD display and simple menu
structure. Output range is adjustable with choices of inputting
tank dimensions or just fill and empty the tank while calibrating
and it automatically scales to levels it senses. Window cover
allows early viewing of display. Failsafe output options and diagnostic capabilities makes the ULT a good choice for critical
applications.

Materials
The ULT may be used to detect level of a variety of materials.
Since the sensing technology is non-contact it is well suited for
corrosive, coating, slurry, or sticky media. The hazardous
approval rating also makes the unit ideal for use with hazardous
rated applications. Please see the specifications section for hazardous approval classifications.
TEMPERATURE °C
OpeRaTinG pRinCipLe
Ultrasound is sound with a frequency greater than the upper limit
of human hearing; approximately 20 kilohertz. The ULT contains
an ultrasonic transducer and a temperature sensing element.
The ultrasonic transducer transmits ultrasound wave pulses
through air directed towards the material of which the level is
desired. The ultrasound waves then reflect off of the material as
an echo and travel back to the transducer. The level of the
material is determined by the transit time of the ultrasound wave
pulse from the sensor to material and for the echo to come back
to the sensor. The speed of sound through air is sensitive to the
air temperature. The ULT uses the temperature sensing element
to compensate for air temperature changes.
The ULT incorporates patented surface processing technology
and adaptive signal processing. Surface processing technology
filters out all signal obstructions that may be in the tank creating
an effecting beam diameter of only 3˝ (7.6 cm). This beam diameter is a straight column and not cone shaped like competitor
units. Adaptive signal processing continuously optimizes sensor
power, output filtering, and environmental noise rejection.
Mounting Location
• The process temperature and ambient temperature must
be within the specified limits.
• The probe must be located away from tank inlets or
chutes where material may fall on the probe during
filling or emptying.
• The probe must be located at least 3˝ (7.6 cm) away
from the tank side wall.
• The probe cannot be used in vacuum applications.
• The probe must be installed vertically and perpendicular
to the media surface.
• Make sure the covers are accessible to allow for
programming, wiring, and ability to see the display.

Fittings should be selected that minimize the installation height
of the transmitter so that mounting hardware does not interfere
with the acoustic signal. If the installation does require a riser
then the transmitter may be elevated up to 12˝ (30 cm) in a 6˝
(15 cm) diameter riser, 8˝ (20 cm) in a 4˝ (10 cm) diameter riser,
and 3˝ (7.6 cm) in a 2˝ (5 cm) diameter riser, see Figure 2. A
stand pipe may be used to dampen turbulence or separate surface foam. Use a minimum 3˝ diameter pipe and cut to the
desired length of the transmitter span with a 45° notch at the bottom. A ventillation hole needs to be created at the top of the pipe
within the 8˝ (20 cm) blind zone, see Figure 3.
eLeCTRiCaL COnneCTiOn
CaUTiOn: Do not exceed the specified supply voltage rating. Permanent damage not covered by the
warranty may result. This unit is not designed for AC
voltage operation.
nOTe: Installation must be made in accordance with local codes
and regulations. When fishing wire through the conduit connection do not allow the wire to touch or press on components on
the boards. Damage to the circuitry may result. Make sure that
the wire is routed so it will not interfere with the calibration
switches.
RISER
CaUTiOn: Hazardous area Use: Plug any
unused conduit openings. Plug must engage a
minimum of 5 threads. Use a conduit seal within
18˝ (45.7 cm) of conduit entry. Disconnect power
before opening, servicing, programming, installing,
or removing.

The ULT provides two 1/2˝ NPT female ports for conduit connection. The conduit connection must be made such that condensation is not allowed to enter the sensor housing. If necessary install a conduit breather drain in a separate conduit body
to prevent buildup of moisture. If nonmetallic conduit is used the
protective ground may be connected to the internal ground connection screw.
The ULT transmitter is designed as a two wire 4-20 mA device.
Connection to the board is through a two pin terminal block. The
circuitry is polarized so the positive must be connected to terminal 1 and the negative must be connected to terminal number 2.
It is recommended that shielded twisted pair wire be used if the
potential exists for interference from external noise sources.
Ground the shield at the case using the internal ground screw
and leave the other end of the shield open. Do not use the
shield as one of the current loop conductors.
power Supply
The transmitter requires a minimum of 18 Volts DC at its connection for proper operation, and a maximum of 28 Volts.
Choose a power supply with a voltage and current rating sufficient to meet this power specification under all operational conditions. If the supply is unregulated, make sure that the output
voltage remains within the required voltage range under all
power line conditions. Ripple on the supply should not exceed
100 mV.
SeTUp & CaLiBRaTiOn
Four buttons are provided for all setup and calibration operations. All settings are stored in nonvolatile memory so they will
not be lost if the power is removed.
Loop Resistance
The maximum allowable loop resistance is dependent on the
power supply voltage. The maximum loop voltage drop must not
reduce the transmitter voltage below the 18 Volt minimum. The
maximum loop resistance can be calculated using the following
equation:
RMAX =
VPS - 18.0

MenU SeLeCTiOnS
The transmitter has two modes: operating and programming. In
the normal operating mode the transmitter will display the liquid
height. The unit comes factory calibrated with the output defaulted to 4 mA equal to the maximum range and 20 mA equal to the
minimum range of the transmitter model. In the programming
mode the transmitter will display the programming menus and
choices. When in the programming mode the transmitter will
hold the last current value. The value will not change until the
transmitter is returned to operating mode via RUN in the menu
structure.
To enter the programming mode press and hold the enTeR button for approximately 5 seconds. Once in programming mode
there are the following top menu selections: DiSpLaY, TanK,
OUTpUT, TaRGeT CaL, VaLUeS, HeLp, and RUn. Pressing
the inDeX button will increment to the next top menu and pressing the ENTER button will enter the menu for programming
changes.

to set the 4 and 20 mA points manually. See Figure 6 below.
Press inDeX to advance to the next menu item. Press enTeR
to retain the value.
HeiGHT
Sets the 4 mA value. Program as the distance from the
transducer face to the 4 mA value desired (normally
the bottom or lowest value of the tank). Factory default
is the maximum range of the model. Use the Up and
DOWn buttons to change the value in the length units
the unit has been programmed for. The programmed
value can be anywhere in the range below fiLL
HeiGHT. If reverse mA is used then this will become
the 20 mA value.
fiLL HeiGHT
Sets the 20 mA value. Program as the distance from the
HeiGHT (normally the bottom of the tank) to the 20 mA value
desired. Factory default is the maximum range of the model
minus the blind zone distance of 8˝ (20 cm). Use the Up and
DOWn buttons to change the value in the length units the unit
has been programmed for. The programmed value can be anywhere in the range above HeiGHT. The maximum value for
fiLL HeiGHT is the maximum range of the unit minus the blind
zone distance of 8˝ (20 cm). The blind zone distance is automatically subtracted from the fiLL HeiGHT value programmed.
If reverse mA is used then this will become the 4 mA value.
