HydroRanger 200 and MultiRanger 200 ultrasonic level transmitters enhanced with new features including faster commissioning, improved Human Machine Interface, Graphical Start Wizard and wider communication protocols
Siemens UK & Ireland has added new features to two of its ultrasonic level controllers to raise the bar for the industry standard in water level measurement.
The MultiRanger 200 and HydroRanger 200, established market-leading products, have been enhanced with new technology and design alterations to deliver a number of benefits to users.
Both products feature an improved Human Machine Interface with local four-button programming and menu-driven parameters, for unparalleled ease of use. Setup is speedier than before – Siemens UK & Ireland promises under a minute – thanks to the addition of graphical Quick Start Wizards, as well as a redesigned enclosure with protected wiring compartment and removable terminal blocks.
The controllers also offer a wider range of communication options including increased interaction with the popular Profibus DPV1 industrial protocol. By connecting them to other products, users can enhance the capabilities of the HydroRanger/MultiRanger 200. For example, they are compatible with Siemens Echomax ultrasonic non-contacting transducers, which are impervious to dust, moisture, vibrations, flooding, and high temperatures. When paired with a submergence shield, they have the ability to sense flooding or overfill conditions.
Suitable for use across industry sectors, the controllers have applications ranging from water/wastewater monitoring via pumping stations or open channels, to inventory management of chemicals or liquids and truck load-outs. They provide highly accurate measurements of level, flow, differential level and volume conversion, with additional alarm and pump control functions. For instance, the patented signal processing technology Sonic Intelligence differentiates between true and false echoes which can be caused by electrical noise.
Derek Moore, UK Product Level Manager, Siemens UK & Ireland, comments: “For nearly 30 years, the HydroRanger 200 has remained the industry standard for level measurement across a number of applications. Our continued investment in this solution, as well as our wider industrial measurement portfolio, demonstrates our commitment to helping manufacturers meet industry challenges now, and in the future.”
