Accutech launches wireless instrumentation for hydrostatic level measurement

Hudson, MA—Accutech has added a new Wireless Level Field Unit to its industrial wireless instrumentation products.


Hudson, MA— Accutech has added a new Wireless Level Field Unit to its industrial wireless instrumentation products. Accutech manufactures embedded, microprocessor-based electronics, and is a division of Adaptive Instruments Corp.

The new field unit measures hydrostatic level in a vented tank and is available with an inte-grated sensor or an extended sensor. In situations where the level measurement point is low to the ground or the tank is surrounded by a containment dike, the extended sensor allows for more ad-vantageous positioning of the wireless transceiver without compromising accuracy. The unit is self-contained, fully wireless, and samples pressure at regular intervals based on user specifica-tion.

With a transmission range of up to 10,000 ft using extended range antennas, and a battery life of up to five years, the field unit reportedly is easily installed, FM approved, and Class 1 and Division 1 approved. It reportedly provides measurement and monitoring variables that are often unattainable with wired solutions. Accutech adds that its 900-MHz, ISM license-free unit pro-vides complete security, with frequency-hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) communication tech-nology.

The firm adds that wireless instrumentation is products are more easily installed than tradi-tional instruments, in as little as an hour from start to finish, saving up to 90% of total cost. Fur-ther, they can be conveniently integrated into a process operation's existing controls. Data from the units is wirelessly transmitted back to a Base Radio that provides input to the existing plant control system. Accutech's instrumentation is designed to meet strict requirements and to solve tough chal-lenges in difficult environments. Accutech’s industry solutions provide businesses of all types with powerful tools to reduce costs, save time, enhance safety, improve environmental perform-ance and cut waste.
