The Siemens SITRANS LUC 500 ultrasonic level controller is a complete, cost-effective solution for monitoring and control in water distribution and wastewater collection systems.
It combines non-contacting ultrasonic technology, patented echo-processing techniques and proven application software to provide accurate level monitoring in liquids up to 15m (50 ft). It also effectively monitors flow in flumes, weirs, and open channels. Five relays control any combination of pumps, gate valves, and alarms. Further advantages include fault signalling and data logging for trend analysis. It can log the time, date and volume of up to 20 occurrences of combined sewer overflows (CSO).
The basic level controller has 8 digital inputs, 5 digital outputs, 1 analog input, 1 ultrasonic level point, differential/average capability, and one RS-232 interface with Modbus RTU/ASCII protocol. The Siemens SITRANS LUC500 can be expanded by additional I/Os, more RAM, two channels, RS-485 or Smartlinx communications modules as needs grow.
It integrates seamlessly with SCADA or DCS systems or a PLC system to provide remote access to all system parameters (pumped volume, pump runtime, pump status, etc.) The integral telemetry interface (Modbus? RTU/ASCII) allows remote control in real time.
The ultrasonic level controller is easy to install and configure, with fast start up, reliable performance, and low maintenance
Suitable for outdoor or indoor mounting. Typically used for remote lift stations or where the most number of I/O options are required.
Suitable for indoor mounting. Typically used in control rooms alongside other panel-mounted electrical equipment or where space is limited.
Suitable for indoor mounting. Typically used in control rooms where rack mounting is preferred.
The LUC500 can be expanded to meet the requirements of a variety of applications. Auxiliary I/O cards, RAM and data logging, dual point function, and SmartLinx? communications.
