MTS Systems Corp.'s Sensors Division has developed a display meter to work with the Level Plus MG transmitter with Modbus interface.

The meter was developed as a Side Tank Indicator (STI) for storage tanks with the ability to interface via Modbus and display tank levels in feet, inches and 16ths of an inch. Plug-and-play out of the box, users can choose to have the meter display product only, product and temperature, or product, interface and temperature.

Features include two relays (2A at 250 SPDT), a 4-20mA output, 120/240Vac input power, 24Vdc to the gauge and an optional explosion-proof housing. The display can show the measurement in feet, inches and to 1/16 an inch and temperature to one decimal point.

The model MG transmitter monitors the product, interface and temperature all from a single process opening. Every transmitter is intrinsically safe, approved, and can be ordered with an explosion-proof housing, the company said.

The Modbus protocol also provides volume measurement with the usage of up to 100-point strapping table and temperature correction according to API standards with a direct connection.
