SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Step Three
Proper Installation and Handling: Because this is an electrically operated device, only properly-trained staff should install and/
or repair this product. Use a proper sealant or gasket with all
transmitter installations. Note: Always install the Viton gasket with
all versions of the LA12-_061. The G threaded version of the Cricket
will not seal unless the gasket is installed properly. Never overtighten the transmitter within the fitting, beyond a maximum of 80
inch-pounds torque. Always check for leaks prior to system start-up.
Wiring and Electrical: A supply voltage of 12-36 VDC is used to
power the LA12 transmitter. The sensor systems should never
exceed a maximum of 36 volts DC. Electrical wiring of the sensor
should be performed in accordance with all applicable national,
state, and local codes.
Material Compatibility: The Cricket™ enclosure (LA12 series)
is made of Polypropylene (PP) with the diaphragm made of Polyethylene (PE). The pipe adapter is made of Polypropylene (PP). The
wave guide can be of either Polypropylene (PP), Polyvinylchloride
(PVC) or Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF). Make sure that the wave
guide which you have selected is chemically compatible with the
application liquids it will contact.
Enclosure: While the transmitter housing is liquid-resistant when
installed properly, it is not designed to be immersed. It should be
mounted in such a way that the enclosure and sensing diaphragm do
not come into contact with fluid.
Flammable, Explosive and Hazardous Applications: The
LA12 transmitter systems should not be used within flammable or
explosive applications.
Make a Fail-Safe System: Design a fail-safe system that accommodates the possibility of transmitter or power failure. In critical
applications, FLOWLINE recommends the use of redundant backup
systems and alarms in addition to the primary system.
WARNING
The Cricket™ is shipped with the pipe adapter installed
in the true union fitting. Remove the pipe adapter before
installing the pipe.
Power LED: This Green LED lights when DC power is On.
Span: Adjustment for the 4mA setting (invert off) or the 20 mA setting
(invert on). Follow instructions in Calibration section, Step 7.
Invert: This switch reverses the logic of the 4-20 mA output. With
Invert Off, 4 mA setting will be at the end of the wave guide and 20 mA
setting will be 2" below the top of the threads. With Invert On, 20 mA
setting will be at the end of the wave guide and 4 mA setting will be 2"
below the top of the threads.

Step Four
Step Five
MODEL LA12-_0_1-00" ONLY:
Cricket wave guides may be assembled in the factory or in the field. If
your Cricket was factory assembled, skip to installation. If your Cricket
requires field assembly, then use the following instructions below.
1. First, remove the true union fitting from the transmitter. The assembly can be removed by hand.
The Cricket™ measurement span may be calibrated over the entire
range of the wave guide. Use the following procedure to calibrate the
measurement span.
1. Connect a multimeter in series to read current. The top of the
Cricket's™ current signal is located 2" from the bottom of the threads.
The calibration procedure for the transmitter requires that the bottom
of the transmitter's current signal be set using the Span potentiometer.
2. Set Invert switch to OFF.
3. Set level to lowest point. A cup of liquid or a piece of tape over the end
of the pipe may be used as a substitution for a low level reading.
2. Turn a 1/2" NPT male thread on the end of the 1/2" schedule 40 or 80
pipe.
3. Locate the pipe adapter and thread the pipe into the 1/2" NPT thread.
4. Turn Span until current reads 4 mA. Turning pot counterclockwise
will lower the current and turning the pot clockwise will increase the
current. Always increase current to above 5 mA and slowly return to
4 mA for best results. The Cricket™ is now calibrated for normal
operation. Remove the cup of water or tape and continue on to
Installation (Step Six).
If the Cricket's current signal is need to be reversed (20 mA at the end
of the pipe), continue on to step five.
4. Drill a 1/8" pressure equalization hole through the pipe. The location
of the hole should be placed from 1" to 1-1/2" from the top of the
wave guide.

About Alphasonic Contact Technology:
An Alphasonic sound wave is pulsed five
times per second from the base of the transducer. The sound wave travels down the pipe
and reflects against the process medium below
before returning back to the receiver. The
electronics measures the time of flight between the sound generation and receipt, and
translates this figure into the distance between
the transmitter and process medium below.
