Echomax XRS-5

Process Instrumentation

Ultrasonic Level Transducer  

Echomax® XRS-5 ultrasonic transducer provides reliable, continuous level monitoring of liquids and slurries in narrow lift stations/ wet wells, flumes, weirs and filter beds using a beam angle of just 10° and a CSM rubber face. The XRS-5 is non-contacting with a measuring range from 0.3 to 8 m (1 to 26 ft). Advanced echo processing ensures reliable data even in conditions with obstructions, turbulence and foam. The hermetically sealed CSM rubber face and the PVDF co-polymer enclosure are designed for maximum resistance to methane, salt water, caustics and harsh chemicals common to wastewater installations.

EchoMax XRS-5 with IP68 protection is a rugged ultrasonic sensor that is fully submersible in the event of flood conditions. In addition, a submergence shield will maintain a high level reading output during submerged conditions. The low-cost XRS-5 transducer is compatible with a full range of Siemens controllers, from a basic system for high/low alarm or simple pump control, up to advanced control systems with communications, telemetry and SCADA integration capabilities.


Key Applications: wet wells, flumes, weirs, filter beds.


Don’t forget that the safest engineered level measurement solution includes switches for back-up, overfill, low level and dry run protection
