Recently, a customer noticed that the Siemens ultrasonic level measurement system he had installed in a storage bin showed a signficant amount of moisture buildup. At extreme temperature changes (like we’ve seen a lot latele here in the Midwest), there’d be moisture buildup on the Echomax ultrasonic transducer, sometimes so severely, they’d have problems from signal loss.
How could they fix it? One quick trip to the local big-box or auto supply store provided a Siemens-supported solution.

In the case of Siemens’ latest ultrasonic controller, it’s all that and more.
Siemens (and Milltronics) ultrasonic controllers and transceivers, like the HydroRanger, MultiRanger, and OCM-III have been around for years with no significant improvements. Instead of updating these devices, Siemens has done a complete redesign, and introduces the SITRANS LUT400 as the first device in the new ultrasonic controller family.
Here are my initial thoughts on this new player in the ultrasonic game.
