2 KSONIK MICRO LP Ultrasonic Leve Transmitter | Operating instruction manual
1.0
Introduction
The KMICRO LP range works on the non-contact principle of
ultrasonics. A pulse of energy emits from the Transducer at the
speed of sound and is detected on its return. The Transmitter
can distinguish the difference between the correct echo and
other ambient noise. When the signal returns, the KMICRO LP
measures the time period, and then knowing the speed of sound,
it can accurately calculate the distance from the material to the
Transducer. The Microprocessor will adjust the display and 4-20
mA output accordingly.

Quick Start for the KSONIK MICRO LP
Initially, the default unit of measurement (meters) must be changed to feet. Refer to page 5 for the method of changing
parameters and select “ft” in the “Unit” parameter, “ENTER” it and press “RUN”.
IK MICRO LP without the aid of a complicated source code book. There are no references to any codes in KSONIK
MICRO LP. The set up procedure is all menu driven.
KSONIK MICRO LP Wiring Connections
Simply connect the regulated power supply to positive and negative terminals. A multi-meter can be placed in series with
the positive supply to measure the mA output.
Aim the transducer at a wall about 3 ft. away and check the display. It should read the following:
13.00
If the reading is below 13.00 ft., then move the transducer closer to the wall. If the reading is above 13.00 ft., then move
the transducer away from the wall. You may now proceed and check other distances.

4.0Installation
KMICRO LP is protected to IP65. The Transmitter is dust and waterproof so it can be mounted outside. The LCD display
should not face full sunlight as this can cause the display to fail. KMICRO COMPACT LP should be fixed to a chassis
plate using a plastic nut to tighten the 2-inch NPT thread.
DO NOT INSTALL KMICRO LP in areas of high vibration as this may cause failure.
DO NOT INSTALL KMICRO LP in the close vicinity of electrical cable, SCR’s or variable speed drives.
The installation of KMICRO LP is the most important section of this manual and has been driven up into 6 sub
sections.
1. KMICRO LP must be fitted at least 1.64 ft / 0.50 m
above the highest point of level.
2. Always use the plastic nut. KMICRO LP must be fitted
to a rigid support. Use mild steel or a suitable plastic.
Do not use stainless steel as this can cause ringing.
3. KMICRO LP must be perpendicular to the material it
is measuring with a clear line of sight and must not be
above beams or filling points.
Transducer perpendicular to liquid level.
INCORRECT
This is INCORRECT
as the filling point is
obscuring the KSONIK’s
line of sight
CORRECT
This is CORRECT as
the filling point is NOT
obscuring the KSONIK’s
line of sight

6.
If KMICRO LP is in a coned vessel, it must be positioned over
the cone. This ensures that the Transducer receives the true echo and not
one from the sides of the cone.
When a standpipe is being used it must be as wide as possible; i.e. the
pipe diameter must be at least double its height, preferably made of
plastic. The base MUST have a 45° chamber to reduce the echo size from
the bottom of the standpipe. No welding should be present on the inside of
the pipe as this causes false echoes.
If any large electrical equipment is installed in the vicinity, then earthed steel conduit must be used.
5.0 Key Description
KMICRO LP is “user friendly” having only 5 keys and a menu driven display. The keys are listed below with their appropriate functions.
SCROLL
This is used to initially access the programming and then to run through the various commands.

This key is used to INCREASE the value in the various commands.
This key is used to INCREASE the value in the various commands.
▼
ENTER
When the value has been selected it can be accepted by pressing the ENTER key.
RUN
When programming is complete, press RUN to return KSONIK MICRO back to the run mode.
SECURITY CODE
To advance to the programming mode, the correct security code must be entered. The factory default code is 5159.

7.0 Example - Level Measurement for KMICRO LP
The KSONIK MICRO LP is monitoring the level in an open tank and sending back to the control room a 4-20mA signal.
The tank is 8.20 ft / 2.50 m high and the transducer is mounted 1.64 ft / 0.50 m above the tank. The actual level is at
6.56 ft / 2.00 m which would make the output 16.8 mA.

8.0 Fault Finding
There are three categories of possible faults. The malfunction of the instrument, loss of echo and wrong reading. The
biggest problem is to identify the malfunction. If the instrument is not working satisfactorily then remove the transmitter
to the workshop. Connect the power and aim the KSONIK MICRO to a wall about 6.00 ft away, making sure that it is
perpendicular to the wall. Now reset the instrument by the factory reset prompt. Change the unit of measurement back
to feet. The Instrument should now read about 9.85. If it does not read the above then there is a malfunction with the
instrument and it should be returned for repair. If the above works and it still does not work in the field then there are
many possible problems. Please check below for possibilities.
Loss of Echo
Check that the KSONIK MICRO is not being used on a solid or agitated surface, as agitated surfaces and solids do not
reflect as much signal as flat surfaces. Aim the Transducer straight down. Check if the Transducer face is dirty.
Wrong reading, always reading close to the transducer.
Do not reduce the blanking distance below 1.64 ft / 0.50 m unless consultation has been made with ABB. Electrical
noise can cause this error. Remove noise.
Wrong reading, anywhere in tank.
Check to see if there is a reflection from the wall. Please note that a piece of wire across a tank can be a big enough
echo to be accepted. Are the parameters correct? Reset to factory default and check that KSONIK MICRO reads correctly. If the factory settings are OK then your parameters need changing. Re-check them with a tape measure.
