ABB Introduces LLT100, the Next Generation of Non-contact Laser Level Transmitters

Measures any solids or liquids in industrial applications

ABB, a world leader in energy and automation technologies, introduces the LLT100 laser level transmitter, the new standard for laser level measurement. This new device provides continuous, non-contact level measurement of any solids or liquids, even clear liquids. This unique product meets the demands of process automation and inven¬tory management in industries such as mining, aggregates, oil and gas, chemicals, food and beverages, power, pulp and paper, pharma, and water and waste water.

The LLT100 is a maintenance-free instrument that measures the storage level of any material, independent of its properties or conditions. Solid material is detectable up to 100 m (330 ft.) and liquids up to 30 m (100ft.). Positioning applications, where the position of a tripper car is precisely measured, for instance, can be done at distances up to 200 m (650 ft.)

With its narrow laser beam (at 30 m [100 ft.] ~ 20 cm [7,9 in] spot wide), the LLT100 can avoid obstructions and be installed near vessel walls either in tanks or silos with mixing blades, grids or obstructions. The LLT100 measures continuously and provides a rapid surface change tracking. Moreover, the advanced signal processing function prevents the impact of falling material or splashing on measurement precision as well as giving reliable measurement results in dusty, foggy, narrow and mixing environment. Even clear liquids are measureable and no longer a limitation for laser level devices.

The LLT100 embodies the ABB “Measurement made easy” design philosophy by providing one versatile device for even more applications than before. Easy to configure, fast installation, powered from the loop, HART communication, makes it convenient to use. It comes with an industrial IP 67 / Nema4x and approved for hazardous areas (class 1/division 1 (zone 1)) for use in challenging industrial environments.

ABB’s Measurement & Analytics business unit is among the world’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of instrumentation and analyzers, with thousands of experts around the world and high performance technology, ABB’s team is dedicated to making measurement easy for its customers.

ABB is a leading global technology company in power and automation that enables utility, industry, and transport & infrastructure customers to improve their performance while lowering environmental impact. The ABB Group of companies operates in roughly 100 countries and employs about 135,000 people.
