Introduction
Before operating this device the manual should be read carefully paying particular attention to the safety
precautions laid out in section (i).
This instruction manual provides comprehensive information specific to the Mobrey Measurement continuous
suspended solids blanket level monitor, the MSL600.
1.1 About the MSL600
The basic MSL600 system contains an ultrasonic transducer and a bridge-mounted control unit.
The control unit is microprocessor-based and is given the designation MSL600. It is intended to be mounted on a
bridge using a specially designed and easy-to-install mounting bracket that is supplied with the system.
The system is specially adapted for use with clarifiers and thickeners containing municipal and industrial
wastewater treatment sludge. The MSL600 provides a means of sensing the presence of the sludge blanket and
measuring its depth in the clarifier. It also provides a range of current and relay outputs to the user for control and
alarm purposes.
The MSL600 uses the sonar principle, with an ultrasonic pulse transmitted under water from a partially
submerged, IP68-rated transducer (MSL603). The pulse of ultrasound is transmitted vertically down into the
clarifier tank, and then reflects from the surface of the sludge blanket. The system captures the ultrasonic echoes
received from the sludge blanket interface and determines the time-of-flight of the echo from the transducer to the
sludge blanket.
Knowing the speed of sound in the supernatant (the system has automatic temperature compensation), the
control unit calculates the distance to the blanket interface. This distance is then subtracted from the
programmed depth of the tank to give the sludge blanket depth or interface level. This is the system’s
fundamental process variable.
1.2 About this Manual
This section introduces the user to the MSL600 system, its components and key features. The system’s mode of
operation is explained in this section.
In section 2, the manual discusses application planning where installation is primarily intended to be on municipal
and industrial wastewater clarifiers.
In section 3, the manual discusses the actual physical process of mechanical and electrical installation of the
system. This section provides a step by step procedure for easy installation of the MSL600 system on site.
In section 4, the manual introduces the basics of programming the system. This section introduces the human
machine interface (HMI), keypad and display
In section 5, the manual discusses the minimum programming steps needed for commissioning the system so
that a meaningful measurement can be made. This quick start setup section is intended to cater for the needs of
most users.
In section 6, the manual discusses in more detail the human machine interface and how the system is
programmed.
In section 7, all of the system’s parameters are discussed and their function detailed. Sections 6.0 and 7.0 are
primarily intended for the more advanced user who needs to tune the system to meet an unusual application.
In section 8, the manual discusses in detail the mode of operation of some of the key system elements. This
section is intended for the most advanced user.

Finally, sections 9 to 13 cover maintenance, troubleshooting, programming chart, technical specifications and
dimension drawings relevant to using the MSL600 system.
1.3 Important MSL600 features
The MSL600 system incorporates several unique design features which are intended to promote trouble free
operation, give a degree of installation flexibility, and allow ease of installation.
1.3.1 Human Machine Interface
In common with other Mobrey Measurement control units, the MSL600 makes use of the Mobrey Measurement
Human Machine Interface (HMI). The HMI reflects comments and suggestions received about the need to be
easy and intuitive to use. The intention is that you should be able to program and interrogate the system using the
integral membrane keypad and Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) without the need for regular reference to this manual.
For the more experienced user, the HMI also facilitates rapid navigation of the menu structure to system parameters.
1.3.2 Self-cleaning
One of the most important features of the MSL600 is its transducer self-cleaning facility.
In the application for which the system is designed, the transducer is normally mounted in a relatively hostile
environment. In this environment, the likelihood of the transducer becoming coated or otherwise fouled is
relatively high. A fouled transducer is far less efficient at transmitting sonar pulses into the supernatant. Without
the ability to automatically clean itself, the transducer maintenance cycle would need to be more regular, and thus
increase the life cost of the system.
Experience suggests that any moving mechanical cleaning devices are themselves prone to fouling. It is for this
reason that the MSL600 uses an air purge cleaning function. Extensive experimental results show that this
method is extremely effective in keeping the face of the transducer free from any coating growth or build-up of
floating debris.
The cleaning cycle is optimised for maximum efficiency. However, you can manually initiate a cleaning cycle or
override this feature by turning it off.
1.3.3 Mounting bracket
Most clarifier tanks have railings on the walkway, rotating or moving bridge or walkway. It is recommended that
the MSL600 be mounted on these railings. The MSL600 system is supplied with a purpose designed mounting
bracket. This bracket design has been optimised to fit most designs of railing. This is intended to provide
alignment and a stable platform for the transducer and control unit.
The transducer and mounting bracket, collectively known as an MSL603, are intended to be fitted to the clarifier
before the MSL600 control unit is attached to them. This allows mechanical adjustment and fitting without the
need to worry about the electronics in the enclosure.
The transducer mounting arrangement is hinged so that the transducer can be lifted out of the water, using the
chain provided, for ease of maintenance (in most cases this will not be necessary because the transducer is selfcleaning). When installed, the transducer front face should be continually immersed in water to a depth of
approximately 75mm (3 inches). The MSL600 mounting bracket should allow sufficient adjustment for this in
most cases. Extensions and extra tubes are readily available from a number of sources to allow the mounting to
be modified – contact Mobrey Measurement Sales for assistance (see section 3.3.3 for other sources).
Note:
The MSL603 transducer can also be supplied without mounting hardware and is supplied complete with
10 metres (33 feet) of connecting cable and air hose for the self-cleaning system. This allows the installer to
provide their own mounting arrangements using suitable 25mm (1 inch) pipe or conduit. This arrangement is
normally supplied for fixed bridges or enclosed tanks where a pivoting sensor is not required.

2. Application planning
The following section discusses a few practical considerations when planning an installation.
2.1 Circular clarifiers
Circular clarifiers are very common and can come with rotating or static bridges over them.
2.1.1 Rotating bridge
If the transducer is mounted on a rotating bridge then it should be positioned on the leading edge of the bridge,
see Figure (2). This places it ahead of any bow wave in the sludge blanket which may be created by trailing sub
surface scrappers that would otherwise give rise to a false indication of the blanket level.
Ideally the transducer should be mounted between 1/3 and 2/3 of the way along from the outer (wall) edge of the
settlement tank (i.e. 1/3 to 2/3 of the radius from the inside of the tank wall).
Care should be taken to ensure that the transducer is mounted over an undisturbed section of the tank, i.e. not
too close to the tank inlet or tank wall, and away from columns of rising gas bubbles. All of these factors can
result in false sonar echoes being received. It is recommended that the transducer be mounted at least
1m (3.3 feet) from any such structures.
If a scum removing skimmer is present then the transducer should be mounted behind this.
When locating the transducer the user must ensure that there are no permanent underwater obstructions below
the transducer, as these will give false sonar echoes and disrupt the signal. It is recommended that the
transducer be mounted at least 1m (3.3 feet) from any such structures.
Ensure that the transducer does not come into contact or collide with any scum boards, weirs or other surface
obstructions as the bridge rotates.

2.1.2 Static bridge
The transducer mounting arrangement is designed to lift out of the water if it is mounted on a fixed bridge when a
moving scraper passes underneath (e.g. on a picket fence thickener). Ideally, the transducer should be mounted
1/3 to 2/3 of the way along from the outer (wall) edge of the settlement tank (i.e. 1/3 to 2/3 of the radius from the
inside of the tank wall).
If the transducer is mounted on a static bridge then it should be positioned on the trailing edge of the bridge, see
Figure (3). This gives the hinge mechanism maximum clearance from the bridge structure.
Ensure the transducer guard is facing towards the moving sweeper. The guard and hinge mechanism can be
angled slightly to meet the rotating parts at a normal incidence. This avoids the transducer guard sliding
sideways along the rotating part as it is lifted.
Always check that the parts sliding over each other will not become entangled or locked together. The rotating
mechanism on most bridges is strong enough to bend the mounting bracket if this should happen.
It is strongly recommended that a few uneventful rotations be observed before installation is completed.
Figure (3): Circular clarifiers - Static bridge
2.2 Rectangular clarifiers
As with a rotating bridge and a circular tank, the transducer should be mounted from the leading edge of the
bridge to avoid false level readings from the disturbed bow wave in the sludge blanket as the bridge scrapes
sludge into the hopper at the end of the clarifier.
The considerations detailed in section 2.1 for rotating clarifiers should all be considered as appropriate for a
rectangular clarifier.

3. Installation
The following section discusses installation considerations in more detail.
3.1 Preliminary checks
Carefully unpack the MSL600 control unit, transducer, and mounting bracket arrangement from their packaging.
Check that there is no visible damage to any of the packed parts, paying particular attention to the transducer and
transducer cables, and the membrane keypad and display area on the MSL600.
Contained in the packaging should be the following:
Pack one
•
1 x MSL600 bridge mounted unit, with compressor housing containing the air compressor for self-cleaning on
a metal mounting plate (pre-assembled).
•
1 x MSL600 manual.
Pack two
•
1 x transducer assembly, and bridge mounting kit (including tool kit).
(Optional – MSL603 transducer only with 10 metres of cable and air hose)
3.2 Location
Determine the optimum location for installation of the MSL600 following the hints and tips given in section 2,
Application planning.
3.3 Mounting bracket attachment
The mounting bracket is specifically designed for mounting on the centre rail of the safety railing on the bridge of
any settling tank, see Figure (5). The rail can be any diameter up to 52mm (2 inches).
The bracket is also clamped to the bridge kicking board or similar supporting frame.
Adjustments can be made for different bridge heights, and the bracket can be angled to miss obstructions.
An extension arm can be added to the main support tube to extend the adjustment of the bracket further, if required.
Most adjustments are made by hexagon key and spanner, included in the supplied bridge mounting kit.
The transducer arm hangs vertically from a pivot and can be swung out of the water for cleaning and inspection.
WARNING!
The transducer is a sensitive instrument and care must be taken to prevent unnecessary impact or strain on it during installation.
3.3.1 Bridge preparation
The bracket should be prepared and initial adjustments made off the bridge. If any obstructions are present in the
installation area, the unit should be set up accordingly. This will greatly simplify any adjustments required during
mounting of the unit on the bridge. The cable and hose from the transducer should be handled with care to
prevent any sharp bending, especially in the area where they exit the transducer arm.
Check there is sufficient room between the top rail, centre rail, and any other structure for the control box to be
fitted. The space required is 430mm (17 inches) high and 360mm (14 inches) wide [see Figure (5)].
Measure the distance from the water surface to the centre rail of the safety railing (dimension A).
Measure the distance from the centre rail to the kicking board (dimension B) or similar structure.

With the bracket on the ground adjust the pivot tube up or down the main support tube until the distance between
the angle bracket and midpoint of the transducer is dimension A. Adjust the clamping bracket up or down the
main support tube to dimension B so it will be just clear of the final clamping position.
If the clamp is higher than the pivot tube this will need to be removed and reassembled in reverse order (view X).
If dimension A is too large and cannot be achieved, remove the pivot tube assembly, screw on the extension tube
and refit the pivot tube (view Y). If the pivot arm is to be set at an angle or set to the opposite hand, this should
be done at this stage.
Adjust the transducer guard so that it is at 90° to the pivot arm, projecting under the pivot arm and approximately
25mm (1 inch) below the bottom of the transducer.
If necessary move the chain attachment clamps to positions convenient for swinging the transducer out of the
water. Adjust the chain so that it is slightly slack with the unit fully extended and any excess chain is hanging on
the main support tube and not the transducer arm.
The cable and air hose can now be attached to the bottom of the main support tube with the cable ties provided.
The cable and hose must make a 360° loop between transducer tube and main support tube to allow for flexing
when the arm is lifted. Move the transducer arm up and down and check that the cable and hose move freely
without excessive strain.
Before installing the unit on the bridge check that all the fittings associated with pivot tube are securely tightened,
including those which have not been adjusted, as these are often difficult to reach later.
3.3.2 Installing the bracket on the bridge
Before carrying the unit on to the bridge, swing the transducer arm into the up position and attach it to the main
support tube with the chain. This makes the unit more compact and easier to manage. Lift the unit over the
handrail and hook it on to the horizontal centre tube of the rail. Release the rail clamp and push it up firmly under
the rail. While pushing on the barrel of the rail clamp (not the lug) retighten the clamping screw. This will
ensure a tight fit against the rail.
Loosen the clamping bracket assembly, attach it to the kicking board or similar structure and retighten. The
studding allows the main support tube to be adjusted approximately to the vertical position. In some instances
one or both nuts between the clamps will need to be removed. Tighten all fixings.
Lower the transducer arm carefully into the water and check the water surface is approximately in line with the top
of the parallel portion of the transducer and it is clear of obstructions. Adjust the pivot arm height and angle as
necessary. It is recommended the unit be removed from the bridge to make these fine adjustments. Ensure the
cable and air hose still move freely without excessive strain when the transducer is raised and lowered.
Check that the transducer arm is hanging vertically. The transducer guard also functions as a balance arm.
To adjust, swing the arm up and loosen the transducer guard. Move the guard backwards or forwards as
appropriate and retighten. Repeat until the arm hangs vertically.
When the unit is installed and functioning correctly check all fittings are securely tightened, including those which
have not been adjusted.
3.3.3 Attaching the MSL600
The MSL600 and compressor box come attached to a back plate complete with mounting lug. Check the
clamping screw of the mounting lug is clear of the inside face and slide the complete unit onto the top of the main
support tube. Orientate the unit to the correct position and tighten the clamping screw.
Run the cable and hose up to the control unit avoiding sharp bends and flattening of the hose. Plug the air hose
onto the air connector on the bottom of the compressor box. The unit is now ready for wiring.
Additional fittings for MSL bracket (UK only) can be obtained from:

3.4 Transducer connections
The MSL600 is housed in an ABS enclosure rated to IP66. The lower section of the housing is for cable
connections and the upper part has the LCD and keypad controls.
It is not necessary, or advisable, to remove the lid of the upper part of the enclosure. There are no user
serviceable parts inside.
All field wiring connections are accessible by removing the lower lid, which is secured by four screws. Inside the
2
terminal area, all connections are made using screw terminals. All terminal blocks are suitable for wires 0.5mm to
2
2.5mm (26 to 12 AWG). Insulation should be stripped back 7.0mm (0.25 inches).
The transducer cable comprises of five wires, see Figure (6), the connections for which are as follows:
• White wire
-
Transducer signal wire. This should be connected to the terminal
block marked ‘SENSOR’ and ‘SIG’.
• Black wire
-
Transducer 0V wire. This should be connected to the terminal block
marked ‘SENSOR’ and ‘0V’.
• Yellow wire
-
Transducer screen wire. This should be connected to the terminal
block marked ‘SENSOR’ and ‘SCN’.
• Red wire
-
Temperature compensation positive wire. This should be connected
to the terminal block marked ‘TEMP’ and ‘IN’
• Brown wire
-
Temperature compensation 0V wire. This should be connected to
the terminal block marked ‘TEMP’ and ‘0V’.
Figure (6): Transducer cable wiring
All connections to the transducer are intended to be made via the first M20 cable gland (fitted) on the left-hand
side, at the bottom of the MSL600 enclosure.
3.5 Power and other electrical connections
(See also section (i), safety precautions)
It is the responsibility of the installer to observe all local regulations and approval requirements, and to use cable
to suit the environmental requirements of the particular application.
Prior to applying power to the unit ensure that the two voltage selection switches are set to the appropriate
voltage for the installation.
In the event of a fuse needing replacement the user must ensure that the mains input fuse (F1) has a rating of
200mA (F) and the cleaning compressor (F2) has a rating of 1A(T).

3.6 Cable extension
The transducer is connected using ALPHA XTRA-GUARD4 P/N45272. The standard cable length is 10 metres.
This cable comprises of two twisted pairs with an overall screen and drain. The brown and red wires from the
transducer should be connected to one twisted pair. The black and white wire from the transducer should be
connected to the other twisted pair. The yellow from the transducer should be connected to the drain wire which
must be terminated at the screen (SCN) terminal on the PCB.
Fitting instructions for extending the MSL603 transducer cable are in section 14.
Note 1:
The standard 10 metres of cable should be sufficient for most installations. The maximum recommended
additional extension is 20m. Use only cable conforming to the specification given above and ensure any
connections are made using high grade screened connectors. For suitable specification connectors refer to
Mobrey Measurement customer support. It is the responsibility of the installer to ensure that any extension to the
cable must be suitable for its working environment.
Note 2:
The digital input, if used must be connected to switch relay contacts which are insulated to IEC6010 category III
(4kV impulse) with no exposed live parts.

4. Programming
The following sections introduce the main display and use of the keypad (MSL600 only) for programming the
MSL600. Password protection to prevent unauthorized access is also discussed.
4.1 Display
The display is a 240 x 128 dot matrix LCD module with full graphics capability and LED back light. The LCD is
split into four parts, see Figure (8).
Figure (8): The LCD display layout
•
Upper left
–
In the upper left of the display is an icon representing the transducer and the unit tag
number. The tag number is user programmable via the HMI.
•
Upper right
–
The HMI information is displayed in the upper right of the display. The HMI uses 4 lines
x 20 characters with each character 7 x 5 dots. In normal operation, the actual blanket
level is displayed here.
•
Lower left
–
The lower left of the display shows the sonar echo profile from which the blanket position
is determined.
•
Lower right
–
The lower right of the display shows the blanket level trend at minute intervals over the
last hour.
When the display is in the normal mode, trending is active and the m and o keys enable the user to view the last
12 hours of data, an hour at a time backwards and forwards respectively. The views are labelled with their start
and finish times. The sonar echo profile recorded at the corresponding start time is also displayed.
After reaching the oldest data the o key is inoperative. Where no data has been recorded there is a gap in the
trend line. A zero value is represented by a line a single-pixel thick. Pressing Esc returns to the real time normal
display.
Note: Do not confuse this trending with data logging which is discussed in more detail later.
The LCD has a back light for operator convenience. This has one of 3 modes selectable using the HMI:
•
On permanently unless internal temperature too high, in which case automatically off.
•
Off permanently unless internal temperature is too low, in which case automatically on.
•
Auto - i.e. off until keypad is actuated, in which case on and stay on for, typically, 5 minutes - on for only 10
seconds if internal temperature too high.
The LCD on the MSL600 is supplemented by a single red LED which indicates the health of the unit. The LED
flashes every 2 seconds (½Hz) to indicate normal operation, whilst a steady illumination or no illumination
indicates a problem.

IP262/Z0, Rev. AB
February 2012
4.2 Contrast (viewing angle) control
When the system is making measurements in normal mode the screen contrast or viewing angle can be adjusted.
Whilst holding down the Esc key press either the n or p key
Esc and - increases (darkens) the contrast and Esc and p decreases (lightens) the contrast.
4.3 Keypad and Menu Navigation
Data entry and interrogation is normally achieved using the integral membrane keypad on the MSL600 front
panel, see Figure (9).
Figure (9): Keypad layout
The keypad comprises 6 keys:
•
•
•
Cursor keys (npmo)
Enter key (€)
Escape key (Esc)
The four arrow keys allow navigation around the HMI menu structure and the Esc and€ keys allow movement
from one menu level to the next. Each time a key is pressed an audible “beep” is heard. This “beep” can be
turned off via the HMI if required.
To access the main menu (from the normal display, see section 4.1) press €.
To access a menu option, highlight the option using the np keys and press €.
To change a parameter the padlock in the on line/off line menu must be open. This is done by highlighting “Go off
Line” in the main menu and pressing €. Press€ again and the padlock will open. Press€ again and the padlock
will close.
By pressing Esc repeatedly, the screen will always return to the normal display. Alternatively, pressing and
holding Esc for a few seconds will result in jumping straight back to the Main Menu screen.
If any key other than Esc is held pressed for more than 1 second then it auto repeats. This is particularly useful for
fast scrolling through parameters. Although the display does not show every parameter whilst fast scrolling (it is
only refreshed every 500ms), the key beep (if enabled) is actuated for each parameter.
Movement through the menu structure using the arrows is shown by the titles being highlighted and flashing, i.e.
reversed to showing clear letters on a black background and vice versa. Pressing €with the title highlighted
enters that part of the menu.

MSL600
4.4 Security
The HMI includes a password system which may be used to protect parameters from unauthorised changes and
also to prevent the system from being switched between On and Off-line mode.
The password is in the form of a 4-digit code (or PIN). When the user has entered the correct PIN then the
password is said to be open (else closed). The PIN is a 4-digit code, value 0000 to 9999.
Once the password is open then all parameters may be edited.
A PIN of 0000 means that the password is disabled, i.e. no password is required to edit parameters.
Examining the PIN locally shows “- - - -” unless set to 0000.
When prompting for entering of PIN, the display shows “- - - -”.
A PIN is set or entered by scrolling each of the 4 digits using the m and o arrows to select the digit and n and p
arrows to select the value for each digit.
No PIN is required to navigate the menus or to simply examine parameter values.
Attempting to change a parameter value prompts for the entering of the PIN (if it is not already open). If the
parameter affects outputs, and if On-line, then after entering the PIN the user is offered go Off-line.
If the password is open then the main menu offers the option “Cancel Password” as the default (highest priority)
option. Closing the password does not affect the On line/Off-line status.
The password is automatically closed after 5 minutes without any key press; this does not affect the
On line/Off-line status.
4.5 On-line/Off-line
This feature allows the MSL600 outputs, i.e. its relays and current output to be frozen. Also, when On-line, the
editing of all parameters which may affect these outputs is inhibited.
Off-line inhibits relays and current output.
On-line inhibits the editing of all parameters that may affect the outputs. These include relay, current output and
alarm parameters.
The On line/Off-line state is shown by the padlock symbol at the top left-hand corner of the HMI display (padlock
closed represents On-line).
Go On line/Off-line by selecting the appropriate item in the main menu. As the mode is toggled, a large image of
the Padlock symbol opens and closes. Attempting to edit any parameter can only be performed with the unit
Off-line.
If the system password is closed then the system will prompt for a password, once correctly entered then it
changes as requested.
NOTE: There is no time-out on On-line or Off-line.

5. Quick start parameters
The system leaves the factory with default values in all the parameters. These values, after installation, allow
immediate operation without any further programming. However, it is recommended for best operation that the
following parameters should be programmed.
In order to get meaningful measurements from the MSL600 in the minimum time only the following parameters
need to be adjusted.
5.1 Tank depth - Bottom reference
An accurate knowledge of the tank depth is a key parameter for the system.
The tank depth is the distance from the front face of the transducer to the bottom of the tank directly under the
transducer [see Figure (10)]. Where the tank bottom slopes, as is often the case, the sludge blanket level, Xm
indicated by the system is therefore relative to this zero reference level.
Tank depth
Sludge blanket interface Xm
0m tank depth
Figure (10): Tank depth parameter
The maximum tank depth that the system will measure is 7.000m (23.00 feet), the minimum is 1.000m (3.3 feet),
do not confuse this with the transducer blanking distance which is discussed elsewhere and is 0.3m (1 foot) by
default.
The tank depth value is stored in the system and used in subsequent calculations. The factory default is 7.000m
(23.00 feet), corresponding to the maximum depth of tank for which the system is specified.
When the unit is powered on for the first time the system makes measurements using this default. It will be
obvious that until the user enters a measured value certain functions, such as current output and displayed
blanket level will not be correct for the installation.

MSL600
5.2 Determination of tank depth
The ultimate blanket level measurement accuracy depends upon the accuracy of the value entered for the tank
depth. It is always recommended that this be determined for every installation by the user using a measuring rod
or similar. Alternatively, the user can obtain a workable estimate of the tank depth by adjusting the tank depth
value Off line using the HMI and positioning the bottom echo at the bottom of the profile display.
This only works if a bottom echo is visible and the user must be sure that the echo he is positioning does actually
correspond to the tank bottom. To do this, follow the procedure below:
1.
2.
From the normal display, press €.
The main menu will appear on the upper right of the display.
3.
4.
Highlight the Go Off line menu option and press €. The padlock will open.
Press Esc to return to the main menu.
5.
Use the n and p keys highlight the INSTALLATION menu option and press €.
6.
Highlight the Tank depth option and press €.
7.
To edit the depth press €.
8.
Use the n and p keys to increment and decrement the highlighted digit.
9.
Use the m and o keys to move from one digit to the next.
10.
11.
When editing has finished press € to save the value.
The large echo (in most cases this represents the bottom of the tank that the transducer is positioned over)
on the lower left display will move.
Repeat steps 7 to 11 as necessary.
When this echo appears at the bottom of the display the tank depth is set.
ESC to return to main menu.
12.
13.
14.
Please note that to avoid confusing echoes this procedure should be carried out when there is no significant
sludge blanket in the tank.
5.3 Transducer self-cleaning
The transducer self-cleaning is pre-programmed for optimal performance. However, the cleaning cycle can be
changed by following the procedure set out below.
In order to access the transducer cleaning parameters follow the following programming sequence:
1. Press € to access the main menu.
2. The main menu will appear on the upper right of the display.
3. Highlight the Go Off line menu option and press €. The padlock will open.
4. Press Esc to return to the main menu.
5. Use the n and p keys to highlight the SETUP menu option and press €.
6. Highlight the DUTY (mode) menu option and press €.
7. Highlight the CLEANING menu option and press €.
8. Highlight the Start On menu option and press €.
9. Use the n and p keys to highlight the required option and press €.
Three options are available;
• Auto Clean - This is the default option and means that the MSL600 will automatically carry out a cleaning
cycle for 10 seconds on the hour every hour.
• Manual 5s - This allows the user to manually activate a 5 second cleaning cycle at any time after which the
cycle returns to its previous setting (note, the unit must be on line to carry out this process).
• Off - The unit will not perform any cleaning cycles.

5.4 mA current output parameters
The operation of the current output is programmed by four parameters and is always controlled by the sludge
blanket level.
The current output parameters are found in SETUP – OUTPUT – CURRENT OUTPUT.
The parameters are as follows:
x
Low range val (Lower range value)
This parameter allows the user to reference the programmed minimum current output (0 or 4mA) to any point
in the programmed blanket level measurement range.
The default condition is that the programmed minimum current corresponds to 0m (0 feet), the tank bottom.
x
Up range val (Upper range value)
This parameter allows the user to reference the maximum 20mA current output to any point in the
programmed blanket level measurement range.
The default condition is that 20mA corresponds automatically to the programmed tank depth parameter less
the top blanking distance. This level is programmed by the tank depth parameter which by default is set to be
7.000m (23.00 feet). The 20mA level for default settings therefore corresponds to a sludge blanket level of
6.7m (22.1 feet)
x
Alarm action
This parameter is selectable from a list and determines the action to be taken by the current output under
alarm conditions.
The allowed actions are:
• Go to 3.6mA
• Go to 21mA
• Hold last reading
x
0/4-20mA (0-20mA or 4-20mA setting)
This parameter sets the current output range from a list to be either 0-20 or 4-20mA.
5.5 Current output adjust
The current output is calibrated in the factory and should not require any adjustment.
However, if required, it is possible to adjust the 4mA and 20mA points using a calibrated meter. This is done by
following the procedure detailed below:
1. Connect a milliammeter to the terminal block marked CURRENT OUT ISOLATED between the 0V and the IO
connections.
2. Put the system off line so that the ‘Go Off line?’ padlock is open.
3. Access the SETUP – SYSTEM – TEST – CURRENT OUTPUT menu.
4. Select either the “4mA out adjust” or the “20mA out adjust” and press €.
5. Read the actual current on the calibrated meter.
6. Enter this value in the chosen parameter and press €.
7. Check that the actual current is now exactly 4mA or 20mA.
For diagnostic purposes the current output can be driven to any value between 4mA and 20mA by accessing
SETUP – SYSTEM – TEST – CURRENT OUTPUT – Set current.
With a suitable meter connected to the current output terminals a value can programmed on the control unit and
the same value will appear on the meter.
This programmed current will remain until the ‘Go On line?’ padlock is closed.

MSL600
5.6 Relay parameters
The MSL600 offers various options for operating its relays. There are 2 relays that are programmable to different
modes, these modes are:
• Alarm
• Set point operation
• De-sludge
• On
• Off
• None
• Fault
• Slg Lev Limits (Sludge Level Limits)
The mode of operation is selected through the SETUP – OUTPUT – RELAY – Relay Mode menu.
The default mode for Relay 1 is set point operation and for Relay 2 default mode is alarm. Relay 3 is permanently
assigned to fault mode (see section 7.6 for further details).
5.7 Alarm
There are six different alarm conditions in the SETUP - OUTPUT - ALARM menu. Each alarm condition can be
set to operate a relay, or drive the current output, or both, or neither to the following states:
• Current output – 3.6mA, 21mA or Hold as defined in “Alarm action” in the CURRENT OUTPUT menu.
• Relay outputs – The relays energise in the alarm condition if they are programmed in Alarm mode.
The relays or current output must be set up for alarm action for this function to operate. The available alarm
actions are shown in the list below:
• Out of limits
• Current saturated
• Memory filling
• Digital Input
• Max Retries
• Xdr tilted
• Dirty supernatant
• Noise Alarm
5.8 Transducer out-of-water time
Certain installations make use of a picket fence thickener or a variety of rotating scrappers and scum boards.
These rotating arms at the surface of the liquid will periodically lift the articulated transducer out of the liquid as
they sweep by.
The transducer includes a (non-mercury) mechanical tilt switch. This is used to indicate when the transducer is
being tilted and lifted out of the water. The MSL600 uses this information to determine whether valid sonar echo
profile data is being received. If not then measurement will pause and outputs will be held until the arm is vertical
again.
When the transducer is tilted a timer is started. The time for which the transducer has been tilted is compared to
a maximum allowed value, programmed by the user. If this time is exceeded then an alarm condition can be
flagged. It is possible to program an alarm relay to respond to this flag. This is intended to detect problems if the
fence should stop under the transducer, etc. The time for which the transducer has been tilted is available as a
Monitor readings parameter (D833).
When the arm returns to the vertical the timer is re-set to zero and if allocated the alarm cancelled.
If the transducer has been out of water for greater than the time allowed then its temperature may be significantly
different to that of the supernatant.
Page 23
Installation, Operation & Maintenance Manual
MSL600
IP262/Z0, Rev. AB
February 2012
The transducer may take up to 1 hour to reach thermal equilibrium. Therefore, it may take some time to restore
accurate blanket level readings. When the arm tilts out of the supernatant the MSL600 holds the last supernatant
temperature reading from the transducer. When the transducer falls back into the supernatant the MSL600 starts
to make measurements again.
When the MSL600 measures the supernatant temperature at the transducer, as long as the temperature is within
the programmed normal limits for a supernatant then the system uses this measured temperature for speed of
sound compensation.
If the measured temperature is outside of these limits then the MSL600 uses the last held temperature reading.
This state will continue until a valid temperature reading is again obtained from the transducer in the supernatant.
The upper and lower temperature points are programmable as HMI Engineering parameters. The default values
are -5 to +40°C (23 to 104 deg F). The lower temperature should always be less than the upper and valid entries
should be limited to temperatures between -40°C and +85°C (-40 to 185 deg F).
Because the tilt switch is sensitive to vibration as well as angle it is de-bounced in software. An engineering
parameter exists in the HMI to allow this function to be turned on and off, in the case of for example a particularly
vibration prone bridge.
5.9 Digital input
Parameter P340 is used to assign the status of the digital input to an alarm relay if desired. This allows the user
to stop measurement whilst the blanket is known to be disturbed and meaningful results would not be obtained.
E.g. during high in-flow or when top water level falls below the transducer face and normal measurements can’t
be performed.
When the digital input is active all measurements continue as normal and the LED still flashes. The sonar pulse
echo display continues to update with live data. However, the blanket level is held at its last value. The trend
graph continues to update, relays and current output remain active, and logging continues using the held blanket
level.
Digital input active means either a short across the terminals, i.e. from a contact closure or a PLC driving low, i.e.
going to ‘0’.

To move up and down the list, use the n and p arrows until the required menu item is highlighted, then use the €
key to enter that menu option.
The presence of additional menu items off the screen is indicated by up and down arrows on the right hand side
of the display.
The next level of the menu is then displayed and the required option can again be selected as above.
6.2 Parameter editing
Once the required parameter is displayed, select it and press the € key (note that menu groups are in upper case
letters, parameters are in upper and lower case).
Note also that there are two parameter types:
• Read/Write - these parameters are normally preceded by a “P” - e.g. P200. They may be modified by the user.
• Read Only - these parameters are normally preceded by a “D” - e.g. D800. They are either fixed within the
MSL600 or produced by data processing and thus may not be modified by the user. Examples are Software
Revision and Serial Number.
The desired parameter may now be modified. Numeric values are edited one digit at a time, the m and okeys
select each digit by highlighting them and the n and p keys increment and decrement each digit.
Alternatively, some parameters are in the form of a list. These are edited in a similar way, selecting with the €
key and using the n and p keys to scroll through the list.
When the displayed value is correct, press the € key to store the value.
6.3 Scrolling
When a parameter is displayed but no digit is highlighted, the n and p keys will scroll to the next parameter in
numeric order. This provides an alternative method of accessing parameters without using the menu facility.
6.4 Direct access
It is possible to access the parameters directly from the main menu if the parameter number is known.
From the normal display press the € key to display the main menu on the top right hand side of the display.
Use the arrow keys to scroll down until the menu option DIRECT is highlighted and press the € key.
Highlight either Pxxx or Dxxx
(Pxxx are user configurable parameters and Dxxx are non-configurable diagnostic parameters).
Enter the parameter number to be edited and press€.
If an invalid number is entered then the next lowest parameter is displayed.

i) Temp OL (Temperature Over Limits)............ see page 33
7.6.1.1 Alarm mode (relay RL1 and RL2 parameters P540 to 552)
There are several alarms which can be assigned to a relay. When an alarm condition occurs it may be signalled
by relay, current, both relay and current, or not at all. Alarm conditions are listed below:
x
Out of Limits - P540
The sludge blanket level is outside the limits set in the relay on and off point parameters
x
mA o/p Sat. (Current Saturated) - P541
The current output is outside the limits set in the current output parameters.
x
Memory Filling - P542
The logging memory is filling. This alarm condition is activated when the remaining memory is less than the
percentage programmed by the user in ‘Low Mem Alarm’ P593.
x
Digital Input - P543
If the digital input is active then the relay indicates alarms.
x
Max Retries - P544
If at the end of a de-sludge operation the start condition is still present for a programmed number of retries
then the relay alarms.
x
Xdr Tilted - P550
An alarm can be activated after the transducer has been out of water for a user-programmed length of time.
x
Dirty S-nat - P551
If the supernatant gives a high degree of returned echo (indicating a significant number of suspended
particles) then an alarm can be activated.
x
Noise Alarm - P552
An alarm is activated if the background noise exceeds the pre-set limit set in parameter P622.

7.6.1.2 Fault mode (relay RL1 and RL2 parameters P560 to P570)
There are several fault conditions which can be assigned to a relay. Fault conditions may be selected to be
signalled by relay, current, both relay and current, or not at all.
Messages describing active faults are automatically written to the lower HMI display.
When a fault condition occurs, a relay configured in fault mode will de-energise. Fault conditions are listed
below:
x
Memory Fault - P560
A memory fault occurs if system memory has been corrupted. On occasion the control unit may indicate a
memory fault when first powered up. This is normal because the unit is automatically loading default
settings in to the memory. After the first power up this fault message should not occur again. All control
units are first powered up prior to leaving the factory. If the memory fault message appears after the unit
has been switched on and off at least once then consult the factory.
x
CU Temp Fault - P561
A fault is indicated if the temperature within the control unit exceeds pre-set limits.
x
Xdr Temp Fault - P563
A fault is indicated if the temperature within the transducer unit exceeds pre-set limits.
7.6.1.3 Set point mode (relay RL1 and RL2)
The relays can be operated in set point mode. See also section 7.6.2.
For example:
If it is required to turn a pump on using relay 1 when the sludge blanket reaches a depth of 3.5m (11.5 ft), then
3.5 (11.5) is programmed in to P411 (RL1 on point).
Note:
It is advisable that the "On" and "Off" points are always set to different values, nominally 50mm (2 in/0.16ft)
apart.
7.6.1.4 De-sludge mode (relay RL1 and RL2)
The relay can be programmed to operate in de-sludge mode. The de-sludge parameters are described in
section 7.3 of the manual.
7.6.1.5 On mode (relay RL1 and RL2)
The relays can be switched permanently on if required.
7.6.1.6 Off mode (relay RL1 and RL2)
The relays can be switched permanently off if required.
7.6.1.7 None mode (relay RL1 and RL2)
If the relay mode is set to "None" then the relay remains in its last valid state i.e. if the relay is "On" and the
mode is changed to "None", the relay remains "On".
7.6.1.8 Sludge Level Limits mode (relay RL1 and RL2)
If the relay mode is set to Slg Lev Limits, the relay is energised above the Relay On point. It is also energised
below the Relay Off point. However, the relay is de-energised in between the "On" and "Off" points.
7.6.1.9 Temperature Over Limits mode (relay RL1 and RL2)
If the relay mode is set to Temp OL, the relay is energised above the minimum and maximum control unit
operating temperatures. The relay is de-energised while temperatures are within the normal operating range.

7.6.2 Relay On and Off Points
Relay On Point for RL1 (P411) and RL2 (P421)
This is the sludge blanket level at which the Set Point mode relay turns on i.e. between 0.000 and 7.000m
(0.00 to 23.00 ft). See also section 7.6.1.3 for related information.
Relay OFF Point for RL1 (P412) and RL2 (P422)
This is the sludge blanket level at which the Set Point mode relay turns off i.e. between 0.000 and 7.000m
(0.00 to 23.00 ft). See also section 7.6.1.3 for related information.
7.6.3 Relay overrides (Min ON, Max ON, and Min OFF)
Relay minimum on time (Min ON) for RL1 (P413) and RL2 (P423)
This is the minimum time for which the relay will remain on in non-alarm or fault modes. This takes priority over
the maximum on time. It is important to note that this function only operates when the minimum off time is set to a
non-zero value. This parameter can be set between 00:00 and 99.59 in mm:ss.
Relay maximum on time Max ON for RL1 (P414) and RL2 (P424)
This is the maximum time for which the relay will remain on in non-alarm or fault modes. It is important to note
that this function only operates when the minimum off time is set to a non-zero value. This parameter can be set
between 00:00 and 99.59 in mm:ss.
Relay minimum off time Min OFF for RL1 (P415) and RL2 (P425)
Once the relay has turned off this is the minimum time before the relay will turn on again. If both minimum and
maximum on times are set to zero (default) then they are not used. This parameter can be set between 00:00 and
99.59 in mm:ss.
7.7 Display parameters (HMI)
7.7.1 HMI upper, middle, and lower display options
The top right hand section of the main display, the HMI, can be adjusted to suit your requirements.
The HMI display is split into three regions:
1. Display Upper - P570 (Default – Time)

MSL600
Engineering parameters
The MSL600 blanket echo processing algorithm has been optimised for use on various types of municipal and
industrial sludge. The user can select from either of two municipal sludge types depending on the application.
The following parameters have been extensively tested and, once MUNICIPAL 1 or MUNICIPAL 2 sludge types
have been chosen, the user should not need to adjust them. However, different sludge types have widely
varying ultrasonic properties and settling characteristics, therefore the following parameters are adjustable in
order that the MSL600 can be set up for different types of sludge.
Note:
It is strongly recommended that if the default parameters do not give reliable operation, or if use on industrial
sludge is required, then advice is sought from Mobrey Measurement Customer Support.
7.9.1
Alg. Select – P620
Use this parameter to select an algorithm which is optimised for municipal or industrial sludge.
The allowed options are:
•
Municipal 1 (This covers most Municipal Wastewater applications e.g. Primary and Secondary settlement
tanks, Picket fence thickeners)
•
Municipal 2 (This covers Industrial applications such as Industrial effluent final settlement, clarifiers, slurry
settlement etc.)
The default is Municipal 1. After selecting the algorithm to use, there are a number of common algorithm
parameters which can be adjusted using the HMI.
7.9.2
Common algorithm parameters P621 to P629
Common algorithm parameters affect the way in which both Municipal 1 and Municipal 2 algorithms work.
7.9.2.1 Ave. Cyc Count – P621
The number of cycles, in powers of 2 over which the unit will average raw sonar echo profiles to remove any
spurious reflections from such things as air bubbles and floating solids.
Since a complete measurement cycle takes 2 seconds then the averaging cycle count can effectively damp the
noise over a period between 4 seconds and 2048 seconds(or 34 minutes, which is a substantial proportion of a
rotation of most bridges).
The default value is 128 cycles. The minimum is 2 and the maximum is 1024.

7.9.2.2 Noise Alrm Lev – P622
The unit automatically monitors the background electronic noise floor as a % of display width, see parameter
D834. If this level exceeds the Noise Alarm Lev value, programmed as a % of display width then an alarm can
be indicated by allocating an output in P552, Noise Alarm.

7.9.2.3 Top Blanking – P623
This is the minimum operating range for the transducer in metres (feet – imperial). This parameter allows the
user to program a region in front of the transducer which is not used by the system.
This is useful if there are any fixed obstructions in front of the transducer which cannot be moved or otherwise
avoided.
This parameter is also useful when programming the industrial algorithm for avoiding floating or settling debris in
front of the transducer.
The default value is 0.3 metres / 1 foot.

It is unlikely that the blanket level will change by a large amount on a short time scale. The settling process is
typically fairly slow. If the system should want to respond to noise or stray echoes from bubbles or debris this
parameter, which is programmed as a time measured in seconds damps out rapid fluctuations in the measured
sludge blanket level.

7.9.2.8 Bottom Blanking – P628
This parameter allows the user to program a region close to the bottom of the tank which is not used by the
system for normal blanket level measurement.
This is useful if there are any fixed obstructions in front of the transducer close to the bottom of the tank which
cannot be moved or otherwise avoided.

7.9.3
Municipal 1 parameters P630 to P637
When the Municipal 1 algorithm is selected using parameter P620 (page 37), only the following specific
parameters need to be adjusted.
7.9.3.1 Significance – P630
This parameter is used to select which echo in the echo profile that the Municipal 1 algorithm chooses as the
most likely to correspond to the real sludge blanket level.
The algorithm scans the echo profile for echoes. It calculates the mean and standard deviation of amplitudes
for these echoes. Depending on the P630 setting, the algorithm can be programmed to select the first significant
echo it comes to, measured from the surface of the supernatant or the most significant echo it detects in the
entire profile.
The allowed options are:
• First
• Most (default)
7.9.3.2 Sharp Echo Reject – P631
Electrical noise and other types of false echo are characteristically shorter in duration than the real echo from a
sludge blanket. This parameter allows fine tuning of the value which the municipal algorithm uses as a window
width to separate out these echoes.
Note:
This is a key system parameter and should not be adjusted without asking for advice from Mobrey Measurement.
Parameter values:
Default
8
Min
5
Max
30
7.9.3.3 Lost Echo Rnge - P633
The lost echo range is the distance, split equally above and below, that the device will still look for an echo
before going to hold last reading as set in lost echo delay (P637).
The parameter P633 is set in number of samples. However, each sample equates to approximately 25mm (1”).
Therefore when set with the default value of 24, the device will look for a valid echo in a window 300mm (12”)
above and 300mm (12”) below its last valid value. If no valid echo is present, it will hold its last reading for the
programmed amount as set in P637.
Parameter values:
Default
24
Min
1
Max
410
7.9.3.4 Threshold – P634
The Municipal 1 algorithm scans the echo profile for echoes. It calculates the mean and standard deviation of
amplitudes for these echoes. In order to be significant, the echoes must exceed a threshold value determined in
terms of the standard deviation of the echo amplitudes.
The default value is 0.5 standard deviations.

7.9.3.5 Noise SD Mult – P635
The Municipal 1 algorithm scans the echo profile for echoes. Prior to sending pulses to the transducer, the
noise floor is measured. It calculates the mean and standard deviation of fluctuations in the noise floor.
In order to be significant, the echo from a blanket must not only exceed a threshold value determined in terms of
the standard deviation of the echo amplitudes (P634) but it must also exceed a threshold value determined in
terms of the standard deviation of the noise floor (P635).
The default value is 2.75 standard deviations.
Parameter values:
Default
2.75

7.9.3.6 Dirty Mult – P636
It is often the case that the supernatant becomes dirty. In this case, large echoes can be seen directly in front of
the transducer that should not necessarily be ignored or blanked out. If the amplitude of these signals is typically
above 50% of the screen width, it is likely the supernatant was dirty and an alarm would be helpful in this
situation. This can be achieved by programming a relay to operate in alarm mode and setting the alarm
condition to Dirty S-nat.
Parameter P636 is used to linearly scale the default threshold of 50%. The default value is a multiplier of 0.5,
which represents 50% of the maximum displayable amplitude.
Parameter values:
Default
0.5
Min
0.00
Max

7.9.3.7 Lost Echo Time - P637
The Municipal 1 algorithm has a facility such that if the echo is lost from a set range (see P633) then the last
reading is held for the programmed time. This allows the unit to accommodate any false echoes from targets
other than the sludge blanket. In other words, the device is able to recognise that the sludge level does not
change rapidly.
The parameter can be set between 1 to 255 minutes

7.9.4
Municipal 2 parameter P640
Only one specific parameter, P640, needs to be adjusted when the Municipal 2 algorithm is selected.
Industrial blankets are typically much denser and more substantial than municipal sludge found in a
conventional wastewater plant. For this reason, the echo profile from an industrial sludge typically only displays
one distinct echo.
7.9.4.1 Threshld Offset – P640
The echo from the blanket will produce a signal which is visible above the electronic noise floor on the echo
profile display.
The threshold offset parameter is the offset of the threshold which the user wishes to set above the noise floor.
Both the noise level, D834 and the threshold offset are expressed as a % of full screen.
The noise level can be viewed as a diagnostic parameter from the monitor menu. The first point in the echo
profile which exceeds the threshold level is determined by the algorithm to be at the blanket level.
Remember that;
Threshold level = Threshld Offset (P640) + Noise Level (D834)
When setting this parameter, remember that the echo amplitude can get larger or smaller over a period of time
during normal operation of the system. This is because the consistency of the sludge varies with time and
position in the settling tank as the bridge rotates over it.
Floating debris close to the transducer can give echoes which will exceed the threshold level. It is suggested
that in this case the blanking distance, P623 be extended to include this region in the echo profile.
The default value is 30%.

System parameters
These parameters can be used to test the MSL600 hardware.
Note: A full menu structure is shown in section 11.
7.10.1 AUTO CYCLE function
The Auto Cycle or Self-Test function has the effect of automatically ramping up the sludge blanket level value
between its minimum and maximum values so as to exercise the current output and relays without the actual
blanket level changing.
With the unit On-line, this parameter is accessed via SETUP-SYSTEM-TEST-AUTOCYCLE. Once the menu item
AUTOCYCLE is entered press €. The on screen display prompts you to press n to start the AUTOCYCLE.
AUTOCYCLE is stopped by pressing n. Press ESC to return to main menu.
A complete cycle is executed in about 100 seconds. It may be paused and re-started using the n arrow key.
During Auto Cycle mode, the MSL600 system continues to measure the blanket level in the background.
On exiting the Auto Cycle mode the sludge blanket level immediately takes on the value based on the MSL600
sensor inputs.
7.10.2 DISPLAY test
This function allows the user to test all the pixels in the MSL600 display.
The Display Test function displays the product name, full software version number, and exercises all pixels.
The MSL600 remains in Display Test mode until the Esc key is pressed. The same data, excluding the test
pattern, is displayed at power-up.
7.10.3 Current Output test parameters P700 to P702
This function allows the user to test the current output on the MSL600.
7.10.3.1 4mA Out Adjust - P700
The current output is calibrated in the factory and should not require any adjustment. However, if required, it is
possible to adjust the 4mA point using a calibrated meter (see section 5.5).
7.10.3.2 20mA Out adjust - P701
The current output is calibrated in the factory and should not require any adjustment. However, if required, it is
possible to adjust the 20mA point using a calibrated meter (see section 5.5).
7.10.3.3 Set Current - P702
It is possible to force the current output to a value to check loop equipment. Any value between 0 and 20mA
can be programmed (see section 5.5). When the unit is returned to On Line mode the current output reverts to
normal.
7.10.4 LOAD DEFAULTS function
The unit can be reset to its factory-default configuration at any time by selecting the Load Defaults menu option.
Pressing € loads the default values when in this menu. This action does not change the language setting or the
base units selected (metric or imperial).

8. Technical reference
8.1 Transmit pulse and echo processing
The transducer and it’s transmit and receive circuitry is optimized to work at 1.0MHz.
Some sludge blankets are indistinct.
The algorithm has been optimised to average out and ignore unwanted signals produced by particles in the
supernatant, whilst detecting and measuring the wanted signals from the sludge blanket.
Although the algorithm is designed to largely ignore particles in the supernatant, the information (size and
distance) is retained allowing a warning of this condition to be indicated.
9. Maintenance
The MSL600 should require no maintenance. It has no user serviceable parts inside.
Although the MSL603 transducer should keep its front face clean by self-cleaning the transducer should be
inspected periodically to ensure that algae or floating debris is not collecting on its side or transducer face.
