Step Two

About this Manual:

PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE MANU-

AL PRIOR TO INSTALLING OR USING THIS PRODUCT. This manual includes information on the LU8_-51_1 Ultrasonic Level

Transmitter from FLOWLINE. Please refer to the part number located on the transmitter label to verify the exact model configuration which you have purchased.

User’s Responsibility for Safety:

FLOWLINE manufactures a broad range of level sensing technologies. While each of these sensors is designed to operate in a wide variety of applications, it is the user’s responsibility to select a sensor model that is appropriate for the application, install it properly, perform tests of the installed system, and maintain all components. The failure to do so could result in property damage or serious injury.

Proper Installation and Handling:

Only properly trained staff should install and/or repair this product. Install the transmitter with the Viton gasket and never overtighten the transmitter within the fitting. Always check for leaks prior to system start-up.

Wiring and Electrical:

A supply voltage (loop power) of 12

-28 VDC is used to power the LU81/83/84 series. The sensor circuit should never exceed a maximum of 28 volts DC. Electrical wiring of the sensor should be performed in accordance with all applicable national, state, and local codes.

Material Compatibility:

The LU8_ series enclosure is made of a flame retardant Polycarbonate (PC/ABS FR). The transducer is made of Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF). Make sure that the model which you have selected is chemically compatible with the application media and it’s environment.

Enclosure:

While the transmitter housing is liquid-resistant the

LU8_ series is not designed to be operational when immersed. It should be mounted in such a way that the enclosure and transducer do not come into contact with the application media under normal operational conditions.

Make a Fail-Safe System:

Design a fail-safe system that accommodates the possibility of transmitter and/or power failure.

FLOWLINE recommends the use of redundant backup systems and alarms in addition to the primary system.

Flammable, Explosive or Hazardous Applications:

Do not use the LU81/83/84 series of general purpose transmitters within classified hazardous environments.

Warning

Always use the Viton gasket when installing the LU8_-51_1 transmitter in its fitting, and always connect the shield wire to the common ground.

OVERVIEW

Step Three

A. Application:

The general-purpose ultrasonic transmitter provides non-contact level detection up to 32.8’ or 10m. The transmitter is well suited for a wide range of corrosive, waste and slurry type media, and is broadly selected for atmospheric bulk storage, day tank and waste sump applications.

Closed

Open

Before closing the enclosure, make sure that the enclosure gasket is properly seated, and that any conduit fittings, liquid tight cable connectors and/or plugs are properly installed and sealed.

Handling Static-Sensitive Circuits/Devices

When handling the transmitter, the technician should follow these guidelines to reduce any possible electrostatic charge build-up on the technicians body and the electronic part.

1. Always touch a known good ground source before handling the part. This should be repeated while handling the part and more frequently after sitting down from a standing position, sliding across the seat or walking a distance.

2. Avoid touching electrical terminals of the part unless making connections.

3. DO NOT open the unit cover until it is time to calibrate.

PREPARATION

Step Four

A. Supply Voltage:

The transmitter power supply voltage should never exceed a maximum of 28 VDC. Flowline controllers and meters have built-in 24 VDC power supplies for use with the transmitter. Alternative controllers and/or power supplies with a minimum output of 12 VDC may also be used with the transmitter for calibration and/or operation.

B. Cable Length:

The cable length between the transmitter and it’s point of termination may be extended up to a maximum of 1000 feet, using a well-insulated, shielded wire from 14 to 18 gauge.

C. Factory Span:

All transmitter models are factory calibrated with

4 mA at their maximum range (tank empty) and 20 mA at their minimum range (tank full). For optimum

measurement performance up to

32’ or 10m, model LU84-51_1 should be calibrated with 4 mA at it’s minimum range (tank full) and

20 mA at it’s maximum range

(tank empty). The 4 and 20 mA span set points can be reverse calibrated on all models.

Note: Percent units can only be selected after the transmitters Height (4 mA) and Fill H (20 mA) set points have been programmed. Therefore initial programming should always be done in INCH or CM UNITS.

D. Display Mode:

The transmitter is factory set such that the display reads the distance from the bottom of the transmitter to the liquid surface. This is also referred to as the Air distance (Air

Mode). As the level of liquid increases, the display will decrease and vice versa. Conversely, the transmitter may be set to read the actual height of liquid in the tank (Liquid Mode). Below, a tank height of 100” will display 40.0, which represents 40.0” of air in the AIR Mode. In the Liquid Mode, the display will change to

60.0, which represents 60.0” of liquid.

F. Programming Off Tank:

If you know the dimensions of your tank, you may input the 4 mA and 20 mA set points manually without performing target calibration (requiring you to raise and lower the liquid level). To do so, review the following:

HEIGHT:

The point in inches or centimeters from the transducer face where the output will be 4 mA (generally the bottom of the tank). Factory default is the same as the unit’s maximum range.

Example LU81 = 197” maximum range which is also the same 4 mA set point under factory default.

FILL H:

The point in inches or centimeters from the bottom of the tank to the high level where the output will be 20 mA (generally the straight wall distance from the bottom of the tank). NOTE: The transmitter dead band is automatically subtracted from the FILL H.

Example: LU81 = 4” dead band. Therefore the maximum FILL H is 197” [maximum range] - 4” [dead band] = 193”.
