Acoustic Wave Transmitter Measures Two Applications At Once
Hawk Measurement, a leading global provider of level, positioning and flow measurement technology, has introduced the new Sultan Dual Transducer for Level, Flow, Positioning and Collision Protection. 
The Sultan 34 Dual is a non contact acoustic wave transmitter designed with flexibility that is used for measuring level of liquids, slurries and solids with the versatility of measuring two different applications at once. The unit emits high powered acoustic wave transmit pulses from two transducers which is reflected from the surface of the material(s) being measured. The reflected signals are processed using specially developed software to enhance the correct signal and reject false or spurious echoes. The transmission of high-powered acoustic waves ensures minimal losses through the environment where the sensors are located. Due to the high-powered emitted pulse, any losses have far less effect than would be experienced by traditional ultrasonic devices thereby allowing more energy to be transmitted and more energy to be returned. Advanced receiver circuitry is designed to identify and monitor low level return signals even when noise levels are high. The measured signals are temperature compensated to provide maximum accuracy to the outputs and display.  
The unit is compatible with a wide range of communications such as DeviceNet, GosHawk, HART, Profibus DP and Profibus PA, Modbus and Foundation Fieldbus. 
Hawk's SULTAN Dual Transducer unit can be used in a number of applications including, waste water/water, mining, power stations, food, cement, plastics, grain, chemicals, paper, irrigation, and quarries.
