Omega's LVTX-10 series of sensors are designed to provide accurate measurement for factory automation, warehouse materials control, pipe and conveyor belt blockage, or tank level applications with non-uniform surfaces. Courtesy: Omega EngineeringOmega’s LVTX-10 series of sensors are ultrasonic transmitter modules designed to provide continuous measurement of fluids, pastes, or uneven solid bulk materials in constrained working zones. The LVTX-10 sensors are designed to provide accurate measurement for factory automation, warehouse materials control, pipe and conveyor belt blockage, or tank level applications with non-uniform surfaces. LVTX-10 sensors features include an advanced diagnostic feature that will retrieve the ultrasonic waveform for analysis. An integrated mounting plate with pre-formed holes is provided for easy installation. 

Other features include diagnostic and monitoring outputs, protection from over voltage, short circuits, and reverse polarity. Operating from 12 to 24 Vdc, all LVTX-10 sensors provide a linear output of either 0 to 10 Vdc or 4 to 20 mA, that are proportional to the measured distance to the target. All LVTX-10 sensors are adjustable for sampling rate, averaging measurement, analog output slope, loss-of-echo timeout, set-point hysteresis (digital switch mode) and provide a software sensor transmit trigger.
