Measuring
Mode
In Direct mode, the device measures
the time it takes to receives a reflection
of the signal from the surface of the
tank contents. In TBF mode, the device
measures the time it takes to receives
a reflection of the signal from the end
of the probe. TBF mode is used to
measure one product with a low εr.
Automatic mode automatically
switches the measuring mode between
Direct and TBF mode. This is sufficient
for most applications. Direct mode is
used for products with an εr ≥1.6 (this
depends on the probe type). If εr ≤1.4,
use TBF mode.

This function is available if TBF or
Automatic mode is selected in C.1.13. If
possible, type in the exact value of the
product's dielectric constant. If you do
not know the exact value, use the
default value. A new product εr that is
too low will mean that level will read
higher than its true value in TBF mode.

6.4.7 How to make the device follow the correct level or interface signal
If the distance measurement stays on one value when the level of the product changes, the
device has probably selected a parasitic signal as the level signal. You can set the device to the
correct value with the Distance Input function.
The Distance Input function, used with the signal screen, makes the device look for the level or
the interface (if the device is configured for interface applications) at the correct point along the
probe. A distance value must be given by the supervisor. The distance is measured from the
flange facing or thread stop to the surface of the product.
CAUTION!
Do not give a distance value that is in the dead zones of the device. For more data, refer to
Measurement limits on page 131.
The signal screen is divided into 4 areas, as shown in the illustration that follows:

INFORMATION!
If the device continues to select the parasitic signal for level or interface measurement, make
sure that there are no obstructions in the tank. If you cannot remove the obstruction, use the
snapshot function to filter the signal. For more data, refer to How to use the snapshot function to
filter parasitic signals on page 96. If you cannot find the correct signal on the signal screen,
contact the supplier.
6.4.8 Thresholds and parasitic signals
General notes
The low-power electromagnetic signal from the device goes down the probe. The surface of the
process and objects in the tank make reflections. These reflections go back up the probe to the
signal converter. The signal converter converts the reflections into voltage amplitudes.
Reflections from objects in the tanks show as interference signals (parasitic signals).
How thresholds work
Thresholds let the device ignore reflections with small amplitudes and monitor changes in level
or interface. The voltage amplitude of signals depends on the distance of the reflection from the
signal converter. Because the voltage amplitude decreases as distance increases, the threshold
decreases logarithmically. The device uses largest signal that goes across the threshold.
The device uses the menu items that follow:
• Level Threshold (C.1.16) to monitor the level signal
• Level Threshold (C.1.16) and Interface Threshold (C.1.17) to monitor level and interface
signals
• Probe End Threshold (C.1.18) to monitor the probe end signal in TBF or Automatic mode. If
the device operates in TBF mode or must calculate the εr of the product, there must be a good
probe end signal.
The electronics of the device amplify the signal. The amplification factor (level of Gain) depends
on the strength of the signal. There are 7 levels (1 to 7). A strong signal is given Gain 1, while a
weak signal is given Gain 7. When you fill or empty the tank, the device usually identifies the
signal. It automatically changes the Gain to monitor the position of the signal.
But the device cannot monitor the correct signal if:
• There are too many objects in the tank.
• There is an object that makes a large reflection in the tank.

How to use thresholds
INFORMATION!
• Although the data that follows refers to the level threshold, it is applicable for the probe end
threshold.
• If there is a parasitic signal above the level and the threshold is too low, the device can
incorrectly use it as the level signal.

Parasitic signal. A signal from a level switch that is in the limits of the electromagnetic field around the probe.
Level signal of the liquid or solids
The level threshold is correct. The device ignores the parasitic signal and measures level correctly.
The level threshold is too low. The device can use the parasitic signal as the level signal.
If the parasitic signal is smaller than the correct level, you can manually change the threshold to
find the signal.
This procedure tells you how to change the level threshold to find the correct signal:
• Look at the signal screen in operator mode.
i Find the likely position of the parasitic and level signals. Make a note of the amplitude of
each signal in volts.
• Go to Supervisor > Advanced Setup > Installation Setup > Level Threshold

• Use the same gain as that used for the device.
• Save the settings.

Interface threshold
INFORMATION!
If the device is set at the factory to measure interface, you can change the interface threshold.
When the device is set to measure interface, the device uses a second threshold to
identify and measure the interface between 2 liquids. The interface threshold
identifies:
• The level signal (the first signal that goes across the level threshold).
• If there are 2 liquids in the tank, the interface signal (the next largest signal). If there are
more than 2 liquids in the tank, the next signal after the level signal.
This device uses this data to monitor the interface signal. When you change the interface
threshold, refer to How to use thresholds in this section. For more data about the interface
threshold, refer to Function description on page 73 (table C. Advanced setup, menu item C.1.17).
Probe end threshold
INFORMATION!
If the device is set at the factory to measure in Tank Bottom Following (TBF) mode or Automatic
mode, you can change the probe end threshold.
Use this threshold when the device operates in TBF mode. The device uses TBF mode to
measure the level of products with low dielectric constants. It uses the probe end as a reference.
If the reflection is very weak, change the probe end threshold to ignore parasitic signals. Refer to
the procedure in How to use thresholds to change the probe end threshold.
For more data about the probe end threshold, refer to Function description on page 73 (table C.
Advanced setup, menu item C.1.18).

In direct mode, the device directly receives the reflection of the signal from the surface of the
tank contents.
TBF mode lets the device measure one product with low εr. Unlike direct mode, the signal travels
through the liquid or solid to the end of the probe. It is reflected back to the electronics. The
liquid or solid must have a stable dielectric constant for accurate measurement.
How to prepare an installation for a device that measures in TBF mode
• If the probe end is not attached, the minimum distance between the probe end (of single cable
or rod probes) and the tank bottom must be 300 mm / 12¨. If the device has a coaxial, double
rod or cable probe, it is not necessary to have a minimum distance between the probe end and
the tank bottom.
• There must be no objects in a diameter of 600 mm / 24¨ around a single probe. There must be
no objects in a diameter of 200 mm / 8¨ around a double probe. It is not necessary to have an
empty space around a coaxial probe.
How to configure the device to measure in TBF mode
• Go to Supervisor > Advanced Setup > Installation Setup > Measuring Mode
Mode.
• Select TBF from the menu. Push [^
^].
• To enter the exact value of the product's dielectric constant, go to Supervisor > Advanced
Setup > Installation Setup > Product Er.

CAUTION!
Do not change the product εr value in Product εr (menu item C.1.14) unless the new value is
known. If an incorrect value is used, the device will not measure accurately.
INFORMATION!
The device usually measures in Automatic mode. If it cannot find a signal in Direct mode, the
device will switch automatically to TBF mode.

OPTIFLEX 1300 C
8.1 Measuring principle
This Guided Radar (TDR) level meter has been developed from a proven technology called Time
Domain Reflectometry (TDR).
The device transmits low-intensity electromagnetic pulses of approximately half a nanosecond
width along a rigid or flexible conductor. These pulses move at the speed of light. When the
pulses reach the surface of the product to be measured, the pulses are reflected with an
intensity that depends on the dielectric constant, εr, of the product (for example, water has a high
dielectric constant and reflects the pulse back to the meter converter at 80% of its original
intensity).
The device measures the time from when the pulse is emitted to when it is received: half of this
time is equivalent to the distance from the reference point of the device (the flange facing) to the
surface of the product. The time value is converted into an output current of 4...20 mA and/or a
digital signal.
Dust, foam, vapor, agitated surfaces, boiling surfaces, changes in pressure, changes in
temperature and changes in density do not have an effect on device performance.
The illustration that follows shows a snapshot of what a user would see on an oscilloscope, if the
level of one product is measured.

Time 2: Part of the pulse is reflected at the surface of the top liquid, the remaining pulse goes down the probe
Time 3: Part of the pulse goes up the probe at speed, V1. The remaining pulse goes down the probe at the speed of
light in the top product, V2

If products have a very low dielectric constant (εr <1.6), only a small part of the EM pulse is
reflected at the surface of the product. Most of the pulse is reflected at the probe end. TBF (tank
bottom following) mode is used to measure the distance to the product surface.
TBF mode (indirect measurement) compares:
• The time for the pulse to go to the probe end and go back to the converter when the tank is
empty.
• The time for the pulse to go to the probe end and go back to the converter when the tank is
full or partially filled.
The level of the product in the tank can be calculated from the time difference.

9 DESCRIPTION OF HART INTERFACE
OPTIFLEX 1300 C
9.1 General description
The HART® Protocol is an open digital communication protocol for industry. It is free to use by
anyone. It is included in the software embedded in signal converters of HART-compatible
devices.
There are 2 classes of devices which support the HART® Protocol: operating devices and field
devices. There are 2 classes of operating devices (Master): PC-supported workstations (Primary
Master) and manual control units (Secondary Master). These can be used in control centres and
other locations. HART® field devices include sensors, converters and actuators. Field devices
include 2-wire and 4-wire devices, and also intrinsically-safe versions for use in hazardous
areas.
There are 2 primary operation modes for HART-compatible devices: point-to-point mode and
multi-drop mode.
If the device is used in point-to-point mode, the HART® Protocol uses the Bell 202 Frequency
Shift Keying (FSK) standard to put a digital signal on top of the 4...20 mA signal. The connected
device sends and receives digital signals that agree with the HART® Protocol, and sends analog
signals at the same time. Only 1 device can be connected to the signal cable.
If the device is used in multi-drop mode, the network only uses a digital signal that agrees with
the HART® Protocol. The loop current is set to 4 mA. You can connect a maximum of 15 devices
to the signal cable.
An FSK or HART® modem is included in field devices and manual control units. It is necessary to
have an external modem for PC-supported workstations. The external modem is connected to
the serial interface.

9.3 Connection variants
The signal converter is a 2-wire device with 4...20 mA current output and HART® interface.
• Multi-Drop Mode is supported
In a Multi-Drop communication system, more than 1 device is connected to a common
transmission cable.
• Burst Mode is not supported
There are two ways of using the HART® communication:
• as Point-to-Point connection and
• as Multi-Drop connection with 2-wire connection.
9.3.1 Point-to-Point connection - analogue / digital mode
Point-to-Point connection between the signal converter and the HART® Master.
The current output of the device is passive.
Also refer to Point-to-point networks on page 59.
9.3.2 Multi-Drop connection (2-wire connection)
Up to 15 devices may be installed in parallel (this signal converter and other HART® devices).
For an illustration of multi-drop networks, refer to Multi-drop networks on page 60.
For data on communication in multi-drop mode, refer to Network configuration on page 86.

9.5 Field Communicator 375/475 (FC 375/475)
The Field Communicator is a hand terminal from Emerson Process Management that is
designed to configure HART® and Foundation Fieldbus devices. Device Descriptions (DDs) are
used to integrate different devices into the Field Communicator.
9.5.1 Installation
CAUTION!
The Field Communicator cannot be used to correctly configure, operate or read data from the
device unless the Device Description (DD) file is installed.
System and software requirements for the Field Communicator
• System card that includes the "Easy Upgrade Option"
• Field Communicator Easy Upgrade Programming Utility
• HART® Device Description file
For more data, refer to the Field Communicator User’s Manual.
9.5.2 Operation
INFORMATION!
The Field Communicator will not give you access to the service menu. A simulation is only
possible for current outputs.
The Field Communicator and the device's local display use almost the same procedures to
operate the signal converter. The online help for each menu item refers to the function number
given to each menu item on the local device display. Protection of settings is the same as on the
device's local display.
The Field Communicator always saves a complete configuration for communication with AMS.
For more data, refer to HART® menu tree for Basic-DD on page 153.

10.4 Glossary
C
Cable
This is a wire rope. It is used as a measurement pulse guide.
D
Dielectric constant
An electrical property of the product to be measured used in TDR
measurement. Also known as εr, DK and relative permittivity. This gives the
strength of the measurement pulse reflected back to the device's signal
converter.
Direct mode
The device sends a signal along the probe. It receives the reflection of the
signal from the surface of the tank contents. The device uses an algorithm
to convert the time it takes to receive the signal into a distance. Use of this
measurement mode depends on the minimum dielectric constant limit of
the probe type. For more data, refer to Technical data on page 120. Refer
also to TBF mode
mode.
Discontinuities
These are objects or parts of objects (including the tank) that are in the
tank, are possibly in the probe's empty space and can potentially influence
the electromagnetic field around the probe. This can cause a measurement
error. Also refer to General requirements on page 24.
Distance
This is a display option. It is the distance from the face of flange to the level
(1 product) or the surface of the top product (2 or more products). Refer to
the diagrams at the end of this section.
E
Electromagnetic compatibility Defines how much a device influences or is influenced by other devices that
generate electromagnetic fields during operation. Refer to European
standard EN 61326-1 for further details.
174
Electromagnetic field
This is a physical field that is produced by electrically-charged objects and
which may affect the behaviour of other objects near to the field.
Empty space
A minimum diameter around a probe that should have no objects in it for
the device to work correctly. This depends on the probe type. Refer to
Installation for more details.
Emulsion
These are small particles of one liquid that readily disperse in another
liquid. An emulsion is usually a dispersion of water in oil or a dispersion of
oil in water. Possible causes are mixing or tank filling. Emulsions usually
separate back into their constituent parts over time. For accurate interface
measurement to be possible, the top product and emulsion must have
stable dielectric constant values. The way the device measures interface
will depend on the type of emulsion:
If the emulsion is a constant mix of more than 5% water, the device
measures interface from the top of the emulsion.
If the emulsion separates gradually from 0 to 100% water, the device
measures interface at the bottom of the emulsion.

G
Gain
This is an amplification factor given by the signal converter to a signal that
goes back to the device. The device can then use the signal to measure the
product. Refer to Threshold for more data. Also refer to Thresholds and
parasitic signals on page 92.
H
Hazardous area
An area with a potentially explosive atmosphere. Trained personnel can
install and use a device in this area. The device must be ordered with the
appropriate options. The device requires approvals (ATEX, IECEx, FM, CSA,
NEPSI etc.) related to site specifications. You can find more data about
hazardous areas in the Ex Manuals and Ex Certificates of Compliance.
I
Interface
A surface where two liquids meet.
Interface distance
This is a display option. It is the distance from the face of the flange to the
interface. See the diagram at the end of this section.
Interface level
This is a display option. It is the height from the bottom of the tank (userdefined) to the interface (or tank height - interface distance). Refer to the
diagrams at the end of this section.

L
Layer
This is a display option. It gives the thickness of top product. The layer must
be more than 50 mm or 2¨ for accurate measurement of level and/or
interface. Refer to the diagrams at the end of this section.
Level
This is a display option. It is the height from the bottom of the tank (userdefined) to the surface of the top product (Tank height – distance). Refer to
the diagrams at the end of this section.
M
Mass
This is a display option. It shows the total mass of tank contents. Use a
mass table or a volume table to display measurement data with mass
units.
Measurement pulse
The device transmits a short, low-powered electrical pulse or wave
transmitted down a guide to the process. The process (or the probe end if
in TBF measurement mode) reflects the pulse back to the device.
O
Operators
Users who can choose how to display measurements. They cannot
configure the device in supervisor mode.
P
Probe
This is either a metallic cable or rod used to guide the measurement pulse
to the process.
Probe length
Ordered length of probe, L, from the face of the flange to end of the guide. If
you ordered a cable probe, this includes the counterweight. Refer to the
diagrams at the end of this section.
S
Sensor length
Length, L', of from the face of the flange to end of the guide. If you ordered
a cable probe, this does not include the counterweight. Refer to the
diagram at the end of this section.
Supervisors
Users who can configure the device in supervisor mode. They cannot
configure the device in service mode.
T
176
TBF mode
Tank Bottom Following (TBF) mode. If the product has a low dielectric
constant, use this mode. TBF mode uses the end of the probe to indirectly
measure the tank contents.
TDR
Time domain reflectometry (TDR). The principle used by the device to
measure level and interface. For more data, refer to Measuring principle
on page 117.
Threshold
A number of limits set either manually or automatically by the signal
converter to identify the reflected measurement pulses from the level, the
interface and the probe end. Also refer to Thresholds and parasitic signals
on page 92.
Top dead zone
The distance from the flange to the top limit of the measuring range. Also
refer to Measurement limits on page 131.
