Frequently Asked Questions About Ultrasonic Level Switches

Ultrasonic level switches use high-frequency sound waves that are easily transmitted across a transducer gap in the presence of a liquid media, but are attenuated when the gap is dry. The Magnetrol® ultrasonic portal, echotel.magnetrol.com, provides information about the Echotel® series of ultrasonic switches and how they can improve the safety and efficiency of many processes. Periodically, MAGNETROL product manager Tom Kemme answers questions about ultrasonic level switches in the portal’s “Ask Tom” column. This week’s blog post shares some recent Q&As.
