Ranger One™ LTRP-1 Ultrasonic Level Transmitter (up to 14ft)

The Ranger One™ ultrasonic level transmitter has a maximum range of 14 feet (4.3 meters). Like all Ranger sensors,
it’s built for durability and ease of use in tough industrial environments. The Ranger One™ is unique in the Ranger
family of products because it can be applied to any liquid tank level application and much more.

The Ranger One™ is an ideal solution for position or distance measurement in factory automation like web control or heavy equipment monitoring, as well as solids, level remote monitoring on anything from corn flakes to sawdust. It’s fully submersible, corrosion-resistant, shock resistant ultrasonic sensors are housed in 316 stainless steel and all-around tough.

The Ranger One™ sensors contain a rugged transducer potted in a stainless steel housing for long life. Outputs respond to measured distance and non-contact technology means nothing touches your materials. It’s also fully configurable with our software.

Ranger One includes our famous “Teach” feature for push-button configuration. You can quickly adjust, optimize, save, and clone your applications without calibration. The Ranger One™ has a Multi-Sensor network capabilities using Smart Communications via Modbus protocol, RS-485. The Ranger One™ would typically replace conventional ultrasonic level sensors PLUS proximity sensors and proximity switches.
