Shuttle - Ultrasonic level Measurement

ULTRASOUND IS USED FOR LEVEL MEASUREMENTS IN FLUIDS AND SOLIDS. ULTRASOUND DISTINGUISHES ITSELF BY THE FACT THAT NO PARTS TOUCH THE LIQUID. THIS IS WHY THIS MEASUREMENT METHOD IS SUITABLE FOR POLLUTED AND AGGRESSIVE LIQUIDS. SHUTTLE IS A STABLE AND INTELLIGENT ULTRASOUND LEVEL TRANSMITTER REQUIRING A MINIMUM OF MAINTENANCE.

Shuttle ultrasonic level transmitter is mainly used for ultrasonic level measurements in wastewater wells, sewer wells and drinking water tanks or reservoirs. Measurements are done without physical contact with the measured liquid. Furthermore, the transmitter can also be used for accurate measurements of water levels in canals and ports etc. Non-contact measurement is ideal for contaminated liquids, including aggressive chemicals or liquids with a very high concentration of dissolved solids or sludge.

In practice, the MJK Shuttle ultrasonic level transmitter operates by emitting a concentrated ultrasonic signal. The echo from this is converted by the sensor to a distance measured from the mounting location. In this way, you obtain stable and reliable measurements even from turbulent and contaminated surfaces.

The device's built-in setup wizard guides you through the process, which is why the transmitter is both easy to install and use. The two built-in relays can also be used for efficient pump control and to give an alarm at high or low water levels.

    Flexibility

    The varied sensor program makes it possible to find a sensor that suits your installation, whether it is ultrasonic level measurement of wastewater or drinking water.

  • Tick
    Intelligent

    The built-in learning function lets Shuttle recognize the structure of the installation, thus avoiding false echoes and eliminating signal impacts from the environment such as pipes and flanges.

  • Tick
    Compact

    The converter is small and can be mounted in almost any place where ultrasonic level measurement is needed.

The range of sensors makes the Shuttle transmitter from MJK suitable for sewage pumping stations, wells, overflow structures or at inlets for treatment plants.

The device's intelligent microprocessor-controlled converter has a learning function that can eliminate false echoes in the well. This avoids unnecessary alarms. The built-in relays can be used for level and alarm signals, or to control pumps in the wastewater well.

On the converter's large LCD display, you can read the measured level. The converter has both analog 4-20 mA and digital outputs, so you can easily transfer your data directly to an RTU or to the SCADA system.

The shuttle ultrasonic transmitter measures levels in drinking water tanks and basins without physical contact with the water. On the large LCD display on the converter, you can easily and quickly read the measured level.

The converter has both analog 4-20 mA and digital outputs, so you can easily transfer your data directly to an RTU or SCADA system. Ask your MJK consultant, which Shuttle Sensor is best for your particular installation.


ULTRASONIC LEVEL MEASUREMENT OF WASTEWATER

Shuttle provides a reliable ultrasonic measurement of wastewater. The contact-free transmitter from MJK has a highly efficient function that provides safe and stable measurements in turbulent liquids, liquids with a high level of dry matter content or slightly foaming surfaces.

ULTRASONIC LEVEL MEASUREMENT OF DRINKING WATER

Here, Shuttle monitors a drinking water facility in Norway. By using non-contact measurement of the drinking water, you ensure a high hygienic standard in the measured drinking water. Level measurement is used for efficient pump control and alarms based on the level measurement.


Features

SENSOR SPREAD AT SHORT DISTANCES

Accordion control

The small spread of the sensor beam makes it possible to mount the MJK Shuttle at relatively short distances e.g. in pump wells, sludge containers or tanks.

Usage in Harsh Environments

Accordion control

The ultrasonic level transmitter’s sensor and converter can be mounted separately. The Shuttle therefore works well in clean drinking water tanks, but also in indoor and outdoor environments with a high degree of moisture, corrosive or chemical compounds

A LARGE RANGE OF SENSORS

Accordion control

Depending on the selected sensor, you get accurate measurements from 0-10cm and all the way up to 0-25m.

Easy Readable LCD Display

Accordion control

You get an instant overview of the distance to the surface, signal strength, active alarms and much more.
