ADVANCED DUPLEX LIFT STATION WITH OPEN
CHANNEL FLOW MONITORINGSiemens Energy & Automation, Inc. introduces the Sitrans L U C 5 0 0 ultrasonic controller, an advanced ultrasonic level controller for duplex lift stations run by operators of water and wastewater plants. The design of the new controller integrates common PLC lift station functionalities into one pre-configured unit that improves efficiency, reduces energy consumption and lowers maintenance costs by decreasing pump failures and site visits. The Sitrans LUC500 replaces the EnviroRanger ERS 500, maintaining the same proven features and benefits. The unit combines non-contacting ultrasonic technology, echo-processing techniques and proven application software to provide accurate level control of liquids in wet wells up to 50 feet deep. It also monitors flow in flumes, weirs and other open channels. The Sitrans LUC500 controller features fault monitoring and data logging for trend analysis, logging time, date, volume or any other application event.
