How ultrasonic level transmitters work

Date Published:

BM Engineering Supplies stocks a number of different Level Transmitters from Bürkert. One of our most popular line of products is ultrasonic level transmitters. This blog explains how these useful measurement devices work, as well as giving you more information about our high quality Bürkert products.

How do ultrasonic level transmitters work?


Ultrasonic level transmitters work in a similar way to non-contact radar level transmitters. However, rather than using radio waves, they use ultrasonic pulses to measure levels. Typically, an ultrasonic transducer is mounted at or near the top of the container. It sends out its the pulse, which hits the surface of the liquid and is reflected. Based on the time differential between the pulse and return signal, the sensor then calculates the fill level.
