How to Install Ultrasonic Level Sensors

Aug 11 , 2023

Ultrasonic level sensor is a perfect device for level monitoring. Thanks to the non-contact measurement, almost all kinds of liquids and solids can be measured. However, if it is installed improperly, the measurement effect will be affected. Today we’re going to share with you the correct installation as follows.

Installation Notice

Step 1: Before installation, choose an ultrasonic level sensor with a proper range. The range is based on the tank height.

Step 2: Install vertically at a right installation position.

1.Install vertically.

2.Keep a certain distance from the wall.

3.Do not install it at the position close to liquid or material inflow.

4.The highest level cannot enter the blind area.

Step 3: When installing, make sure no obstacles in the ultrasonic radiation area. Items should be avoided, such as: human ladders, valves, brackets…

How to Install?

1. For rivers/channels, we use brackets. Note: Bracket should be as close to the wall as possible to avoid echo refraction.

2. For arched container, do not install on the vaulted ceiling but at 1/2 or 1/3 of the radius of the ceiling.

3. For a conical container with a flat tank top, the best installation position of the ultrasonic level sensor is the center of the container top, so as to ensure the measurement to the container bottom.
