Solar Powered Level Transmitter

Solar Powered Level Transmitter An off-grid solar power system allows you to install and operate a Level Transmitter in locations where a traditional AC or DC wired power source may be impractical, expensive or not available. Solar power systems can be the perfect solution for saving money powering level transmitters in remote locations.

Solar powered level transmitters detect and measure the level of substances including liquids, slurries, granular materials, and powders. The substance to be measured can be inside a container or can be in its natural form (e.g., a river, pond or a lake). The solar powered level measurement can be either continuous or point values. Continuous level sensors measure level within a specified range and determine the exact amount of substance in a given place, while point-level sensors only indicate whether the substance is above or below the sensing point.

Solar Powered Level Transmitter System

A solar power system for level measurement applications consists of a solar module, a solar charge controller, a rechargeable solar deep-cycle battery, power converter, regulator or inverter and a weather-proof outdoor enclosure. This system is used to collect solar energy and the store electrical power, and then convert the stored power into the correct voltage to operate the level instruments.

What Size Solar Power System For A Level Transmitter?

Solar Level Transmitter To select the correct size solar power system to power a level transmitter there are a few things that must be known.

1. What is operating voltage and power consumption in amps, or watts of the level transmitter?

2. How many hours per day will the level transmitter operate.

3. What is the geographical location the solar powered level transmitter will be installed.

4. How many days of battery reserve power are desired for "no sun" days?
