Tank Level Control and Monitoring in Food Manufacturing Processes


With advances in process automation comes a greater need for level measurement and control. As pressure on at the bottom surface of a liquid is proportional to the height of the liquid's surface, you can measure pressure using a differential pressure transmitter to detect the level of the liquid, acquire the data on the UT75A Digital Indicating Controller, and use the measurements to control the tank level.

And by using the VJA7, VJU7, and VJET Signal Conditioners, you can monitor the UT75A's control status as well as temperature signal and flow with the DAQWORX Data Acquisition PC software.

Advanced Application UT75A

Die UT75A-Temperaturregler verwenden ein einfach abzulesendes großes LCD-Farbdisplay mit 14 Segmenten sowie Navigationstasten. Dies erhöht die Überwachungs- und Bedienungsmöglichkeiten erheblich. Die Regler bieten zusätzlich eine serienmäßige Ladder-Sequenzfunktion. Der Regler spart durch seine geringe Tiefe Platz im Instrumentenpult. Darüber hinaus unterstützen die UT75A-Temperaturregler offene Netzwerke wie etwa die Ethernetkommunikation.
