Gems Introduces Ultrasonic Continuous Liquid Level Sensor with Multipoint Switch Capability

UCL 510 PR PhotoPlainville CT, November, 2008: Gems™ Sensors & Controls (Gems), a global leader in liquid level, pressure, and flow sensors, miniature solenoid valves, and fluidic systems has launched the UCL-510 Ultrasonic Level Sensor. The compact UCL-510 is suitable for non-contact applications such as industrial water treatment, wastewater management, chemical storage, and many other challenging fluid applications. The UCL-510 offers an innovative solution for challenging fluid measurement with no moving parts. This highly accurate and reliable sensor is built for general purpose, small tank applications 49.2” (1.25 m) or less and offers switch, controller and transmitter capabilities in one multi-function transmitter. The UCL-510 is packaged within a compact sensor with a 2” dead band and an innovative PC interface that provides fast and accurate configuration. The UCL-510 is suited for corrosive and dirty applications and is virtually maintenance free and reduces tank system hardware. The product combines 4 relays, 4-20mA output and pump/valve control in one small sensor for a total fluid handling and automation solution. “Gems new line of ultrasonic level sensors offers our customers an innovative non-contact solution for both small and large tank applications. These highly accurate sensors provide flexibility and control for challenging fluid measurement applications” says Kevin Castonguay, Product Marketing Manager for Gems Sensors & Controls.
