Floats

LevelLimit ® transmitters offer numerous floats for different applications such as stainless steel and Hastelloy ® for both product level and interface level. To be able to accurately detect the interface level there needs to be a difference of at least 0.05 in specific gravities between the product and interface liquids. For detailed information about floats, refer to the ‘Accessories Catalog’, (MTS Part # 551103).

For assistance with selecting a specific float for your application, please contact Technical Support with the following information:

• Specific gravity of liquid(s) being measured

• Process temperature

• Process opening size

• Vessel pressure

LevelLimit ® transmitters should be used with a float having an offset weight and made of stainless steel or Hastelloy ® C. This allows the float to stay in contact with the pipe to prevent the buildup of an electrostatic charge. For detailed information about floats, refer to the

‘Accessories Catalog’, (MTS Part #551103).

Internal electronics

All transmitters come with two electronic components of a sensing element and a board set. Flexible sensing elements are standard for the flexible hose option and rigid sensing elements are standard for the rigid pipe option . The board set consists of up to three electronic boards and a display.

The LevelLimit ® includes a secondary sensing element that is used for detecting a high tank level. The HI level switch includes a separate electronic board and sensing element.

A temperature sensing function is optional with the LevelLimit ® transmitter. The temperature sensing device is a Digital Thermometer mounted inside the transmitter’s outer pipe assembly. The LevelLimit ® can be ordered with 1, 5, 12, or 16 temperature points.

Display

All LP-Series liquid level transmitters are shipped with a stylus (MTS

Part # 404108) to be used for manipulating the display. The stylus is designed to allow for programming of the unit without removing the housing. When using the stylus make sure to align the stylus with the shape outline around the buttons in the same orientation. Failure to correctly align the stylus can cause the display to not function properly. Password for entering the menu is 27513. For additional details consult the protocol specific Modbus Interface Manual (MTS

Part #551700).

Fig. 5: Display

Accessories

MTS also offers a series of displays, housings, converters, and other accessories, please refer to the ‘Accessories Catalog’,

(MTS Part #551103).

5.2 Accuracy

For magnetostrictive transmitters inherent accuracy is measured in terms of non-linearity. Non-linearity is a measurement of any imperfections in the waveguide that are reflected in the linearity of the transmitter’s output. MTS tolerances reflect a maximum nonlinearity of ±1mm. MTS is able to achieve such strict tolerances by manufacturing all of its own waveguide from a proprietary alloy and testing 100% of all transmitters before shipping.

5.3 Warranty

Important:

Contact Technical Support or Customer Service for assistance if you suspect that the transmitter is not working correctly. Technical support can assist you with troubleshooting, part replacement, and

Returned Material Authorization (RMA) information if required.

All Level Plus ® transmitters come with a two year limited warranty from the factory shipment date. An additional extended warranty can be purchased. A Return Materials Authorization (RMA) number is required and must accompany any transmitter returns. Any unit that was used in a process must be properly cleaned in accordance with

OSHA standards, before it is returned to the factory. A Material Safety

Data Sheet (MSDS) must also accompany the transmitter that was used in any process.

5.4 Storage

If storage is required prior to installation, store indoors in a dry environment at ambient temperature range not to exceed −40…+71°C

(−40…+160°F).

6. Installation and mounting

6.1 Training

Warning:

When the pipe/hose of the LP-Series level transmitter is installed or removed from the tank the release of flammable vapors will occur.

Take all necessary precaution when installing or removing the level transmitter due to the release of flammable vapors.

6.4 Installation steps

Caution:

When assembling and installing the LevelLimit ® transmitter, be careful not to allow the flexible hose to kink or be coiled in less than 381 mm (15 in.) diameter. It is recommended that assembly and mounting of this transmitter should not be done alone. To ensure proper and safe assembly of the LevelLimit ® transmitter, a minimum of two (2) individuals are recommended. Gloves are also recommended. PPE may be required for work areas such as safety shoes, safety glasses, hard hat, and fire resistant clothing.

Installation should only be conducted by qualified service personnel according to IEC 60079-14 and local regulations or MTS trained service technicians. MTS offers web based and in person training for installation, commissioning, maintenance, and repair. MTS also offers factory direct services for these same functions. Contact MTS to discuss training or factory direct services before starting.

6.2 Stilling wells and guide poles

Level Plus ® transmitters can be mounted in slotted or unslotted stilling wells but a slotted stilling well is always preferred. Using a unslotted stilling well will negatively affect performance of any level device as the level in the stilling well can differ from the level in the tank. The

Level Plus ® transmitter can also be installed to one side of the stilling well to also allow for sampling and manual gauging from the same opening as the automatic tank gauging. Contact technical support for details.

1. Consult chapter 4.3 before starting.

2. Perform steps 1-10 in chapter 8.4.1

3. Remove stop collar, nut, washer, spacer, and flex stop collar from flexible hose. Alternatively, remove stop collars and e-ring from rigid pipe. Do not remove the adjustable fitting from the hose or pipe.

4. Slide 4” NPT adapter, HI level float, and cable assembly onto level transmitter. onto flexible hose or rigid pipe and move the adapter to the top. To prevent damage to the level transmitter keep the assembly toward the end of the level transmitter.

5. Slide the product float onto the flexible hose or rigid pipe. Slide the interface float (optional) onto the flexible hose or rigid pipe.

Install stop collar 76 mm (3 in.) from the tip of the rigid section of the flexible hose or the rigid pipe. Do not drop float(s) or allow them to free fall along the flexible hose or rigid pipe as damage may result.

Level Plus ® transmitters do not require a stilling well for installation.

Our transmitters are installed in numerous tanks without stilling wells with no loss in performance due to our patented flexible waveguide and hose. A stilling well is highly recommended for agitated, turbulent, and/or fast filling tanks.

Tighten the adjustable fitting to hold the transmitter in place. For the rigid pipe, pull the transmitter upward until the pipe is straight and the tip of the pipe touches the bottom of the tank. Tighten the adjustable fitting. Once the fitting is tightened it is no longer adjustable and cannot be moved.

13. Terminate the field wire cables noting proper wire orientation.

Wiring diagram is shown in Section 13.

Consult Section 5.7 Technical Drawing to reference what the finished installation should look like.

6.5 Mounting

The method of mounting the transmitter is dependent on the vessel or tank in which it is being used, and what type of transmitter is being mounted. For LevelLimit there is only the standard 4“ NPT mount that allows for the functionality of the HI level switch manual test.

Threaded flange mounting

The LevelLimit ® transmitter can be mounted directly to the tank or flange via a NPT threaded fitting, assuming there is a proper threaded connection available as shown in section 5.7. If the float will not fit through the flange opening when the flange is removed, there must be some alternative means to mount the float on the transmitter from inside the vessel; this may require an access port nearby the entry point of the transmitter.

The tree topology is very similar to the bus with spurs topology with

7.3 Industrial topologies

There are four topologies described and illustrated below. However, the daisy chain topology is not recommended by MTS.

The topologies are shown for the Modbus communication of the level transmitter. MTS recommends running independent cable runs for each HI Level Switch in the network.

Point-to-point

The point-to-point topology consists of having only one device on the

loop as shown in Fig. 91. This topology is not usually used with a bus

network since it does not take advantage of placing multiple devices on a loop.

Bus with spurs

The bus with spurs topology has a main trunk cable that has each

7.6 Grounding 7.7 Safety barriers

7.6.1 Safety grounding

Warning:

Grounding the transmitter through a threaded conduit connection does not meet the requirements as a grounding of the sensor for safety.

There are two methods to provide an earth ground connection to the earth ground of the electronics. Either method must result in a resistance of less than 1

7.6.2 Shield grounding

Warning:

The shield ground does not meet the requirements as grounding of the sensor for safety.

Ω .

• Run an earth ground through the conduit and connect directly to the earth ground lug inside the housing.

• Run an earth ground directly to the ground lug on the outside of the housing.

Immunity performance of the sensor from external sources of surge, burst, RF, radiated emissions and other noise is dependent on a proper ground for the shield of the communications cable.

The communications cable shield should be of a braided type and connected to the internal ground lug of the sensor housing.

Runs in a continuous metallic conduit

When installed inside a dedicated continuous metallic conduit, the conduit provides a level of shielding protection from external interference and a level of ground to the sensor housing. In this case a foil type shielded cable with a drain wire connected to the internal ground lug may be sufficient. Sharing of the metallic conduit with other cables will result in loss of effective shielding performance of the communication cable and possible degradation in performance of the sensor. In this case a braided type shielded cable connected to the sensor internal ground lug would be recommended. In all cases paralleling the communications cable with any noise generating cable inside of a conduit or with noise generating cables in close proximity to the conduit may degrade the performance of the sensor.

Runs without a conduit

In some rare applications, or where safety may not be required, a metallic conduit may not exist. The communications cable shield should be of a braided type and connected to the internal ground lug of the sensor housing. Alternatively a safety approved EMC

Cable Gland can be used for grounding the shield. Contact MTS for information before using one of these cable glands.
