Acu-Trac - Model Smart 485 - Ultrasonic Level Transducers
From Level Sensors
The Acu-Trac Smart 485 family ultrasonic level transducers are designed for continuous liquid level monitoring and liquid level control applications. These non-contact, continuous liquid level transducers can monitor tanks or storage containers that have a depth of up to 1.9 meters (75.69 inches) for gasoline and 2.5 meters (98.4 inches) for other media. The Acu-Trac Smart 485 ultrasonic level transducers incorporate a RS-485 bus for real time processing of liquid levels in two messaging formats.
An understanding of the variables that affect the performance of an ultrasonic distance sensor application is important to maximize reliability.
The Smart 485 has two types of RS-485 messaging – programming commands and timed data broadcast message (PID 96).
The Acu-Trac Smart 485 Level Transducer Configuration Kit provides the user the following flexibility:
- The ability to re-configure the unit to support virtually any tank/container size or shape up to 2.5 meters in depth.
- The ability to easily set up the analog output
