Ultrasonic level gauge

Ultrasonic level gauge is a digital level instrument that processes signals with a high-performance microprocessor. In measurement, ultrasonic pulses are emitted by sensors (transducers), and sound waves are reflected off the surface of an object and received by the same sensor.

Ultrasonic level gauge is a digital level instrument that processes signals with a high-performance microprocessor. In measurement, ultrasonic pulses are emitted by sensors (transducers), and sound waves are reflected off the surface of an object and received by the same sensor. The receiving circuit, filtering circuit, and envelope circuit convert them into electrical signals that can be recognized by the processor. The processor records the time between ultrasonic emission and reception, thereby calculating the distance between the sensor and the object being measured. Due to the use of non-contact measurement, the measured medium is almost unrestricted and can be widely used for measuring the height of various liquid and solid materials.

Working principle:

Working principle diagram of split type standard ultrasonic level gauge/level gauge The ultrasonic level gauge is installed on the upper part of the container, and under the control of the electronic unit, the probe emits a beam of ultrasonic pulse to the measured object. Sound waves are reflected off the surface of an object, and some of the reflected echoes are received by the probe and converted into electrical signals. The time from ultrasonic emission to being re received is proportional to the distance between the probe and the object being measured. The electronic unit detects the time and calculates the measured distance based on the known speed of sound. By subtracting, the level value can be obtained. Due to the influence of temperature on the speed of sound, instruments should measure temperature to correct the speed of sound.
