The 15-30-15 Rule in Ultrasonic Level Measurements

If I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it a dozen times when talking with a Siemens support guy while evaluating a problematic ultrasonic level measurement application,
“What’s the echo confidence and strength?” “What’s the noise measurement?”
Those are numbers that quantify the echo quality: the floor values for echo confidence and strength and the ceiling value for the noise. I’d look up the value and the guy on the phone would tell me whether the number was good, bad or so-so. Finally, someone wrote down what those values should be, and they’re worth filing for future reference.
