General Description
The following description applies to both the Vantage 2210 and 2220.
The Vantage 2200 is an ultrasonic level/flow meter. Its' design allows it to be easily programmed as a
level meter or an open channel flow meter. It can operate two ultrasonic sensors and can be
programmed for two level applications, two flow applications or one level and one flow application.
The Vantage 2200 is supplied with a backlit LCD display with 4 lines and 20 characters per line. In the
normal mode the display has two pages with up to 4 lines that can be assigned to each page. The pages
are switched by pressing the UP/NEXT key. The information for each line can be assigned and
arranged at the users discretion. The backlight of the display can be programmed on or off or timed off.
The programming of the unit is accomplished with the 16 button keypad by means of a drill down type
menu structure. The meter stores the steps taken when it was previously programmed. So when a
programming parameter needs to be changed, the user can quickly get to the screen to make the change.
The display screens can be viewed in three languages: English, Spanish and German.
The Vantage 2200 can be programmed to operate on four different types of sensors. The standard
sensors used with the meter are the FB2, FB3 and FB4. The FB2 sensor is normally used for flow or
level measurements up to 15 feet. The FB4 sensor is used for flow or level measurements up to 30 feet.
The FB3 sensor is used for level measurements of up to 50 feet. The fourth sensor that can be used with
the meter is the FB1 sensor that was used with the previous Vantages 2100 and 2500.
When used as an open channel flow meter, the Vantage 2200 has most of the commonly used flumes
and weirs stored in memory. For special open channel primary devices, the user can input a Head vs
Flow table, or an equation with a K and power factor.
The Vantage 2200 is also capable of being programmed for pump alternation control when used as a
level meter. Up to three setpoints and four relays can be used for this function.
The meter also contains a data logger. It will display daily summaries for average flow, minimum flow,
maximum flow and total for the last eight days. The logged data can also be displayed in graphic form
on the display. With the Vantage 2200 the logged data can be downloaded and converted to a csv
(comma separated variable) file to be imported into a spread sheet program such as Excel™.
The 2200 has self diagnosis and any faults, or tripped setpoints, will be displayed if the alarms are
assigned to one of the display lines. The following are the alarms that could be displayed:
4-20 – Indicates that the 4-20 mA output loop is open.
Int – Will flash on when contact integrator activates.
Ovr – Indicates that the flow, or level, is above the maximum flow or level.
SP# – Indicates that a setpoint has been tripped.
Sig – Indicates that the meter is not receiving a signal from the sensor.

Installation
Enclosure Mounting
The enclosure is rated IP 66 (NEMA 4X). A sunshade is recommended for outdoor installation. There are
two stainless steel mounting brackets factory assembled to the enclosure. The mounting feet have slots for
¼" bolts (4 places). The electronics should be mounted with the display at eye level or lower. There are
three ½ inch holes in the bottom of the enclosure for conduit fittings. These holes have rubber plugs
installed at the factory. The holes used for wiring must be properly prepared and sealed to maintain rating. If
you do not use all three holes for conduit, leave the rubber plugs in the holes to protect the enclosure ratings.
Opening the Enclosure:
There are two hinged door clasps on the front cover of the enclosure. To open, put thumb on one of the
hinges, pull toward the outside of the enclosure. Once the hinge pops to the outside it will lower allowing
the clasp at the bottom of the hinge to release. Swing the cover towards the front to open. The opposite side
will act as a hinge to swing the door freely. To close, clasp the bottom side of the hinge and push the top of
the hinge toward the enclosure until it locks.
Hinge Lock and Optional Door Lock
There are two plastic gray plugs supplied with the Vantage 2200. These plugs may be used to permanently
disable one side of the hinged handles. If an optional door lock was supplied with the unit then one side of
the hinge handle should be plugged and the other side will have the key lock used. Either side hinge handle
may be disabled. Insert the gray plug into the keyhole. Warning: This will permanently disable the hinge
handle. The other side can be used for the key provided for the optional lock.
Note: The key will need to be left in the hinge handle if the door is to remain unlocked. The only way
the key can be removed is if the hinge handle is locked.

Whether the sensor is to be used for flow in
conjunction with a primary element such as flumes
or weirs, or used for level measurement only, there
are two terms that must be understood to mount the
sensor properly in either application.
1. The VMt is the vertical mounting distance
between zero level (zero flow level of flumes or
weirs or zero level of tank) and the bottom of the
sensor. This is the offset plus the span.
Consideration must be given when mounting the
sensor in respect to side walls. The distance from a
wall to the FB2 sensor is 0.875 inch per foot of VMt.
For the FB3 it is 1.5 inches per foot of VMt.
2. The HMt is utilized in flow applications. It is the
upstream horizontal distance that the sensor needs to
be placed from a reference point of the primary
element. The HMt dimension is displayed on the
2200 when programming the unit. Refer to Page 312 for mounting detail for various primary elements.

Vantage 2200 Splice Procedure
When additional cable length is required, cable can be spliced up to a total length of 1000 feet. The
cable provided with the 2200 sensor has 2 twisted pairs with shields around each pair and a shield
around both pairs. Eastech Badger splice kit part number is 544700-0001 which will include butt splice
connectors and coax seal strips. Prepare the sensor end wire and the wire to be spliced per the following
instructions. Recommended cable: Belden type 8728, 2 twisted pairs, 22 awg (7x30) shielded wire.
1. Slice the outer cover on the wire and spread open to expose the foil on the two wire pairs. Be
careful not to slice into the foil or the inner wires. There will be two pairs of wires, each being
covered by a colored foil. Split
the two pairs of wire.
2. Use electrical tape and tape
the end of the foil on each
bundle to keep the bundles
separate.
3. Place the end of the wires
into the butt splice connectors.
Use pliers and crimp the round
part of the butt splice
connectors. There will be seven
(7) splices which includes the
four colored wires and three
shields.
4. Wrap each spliced pair with
its' shield wire with electrical
tape.
5. Use the two strips of coax
seal to wrap the entire splice
after verifying operation of the
unit.
