ABB has announced the new LLT100 laser level transmitter, which meets the demands of process automation and inventory management.

This unique product provides level measurement of solids or liquids for 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, which 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 can be done at distances up to 200 m (650 ft).

With its narrow laser beam, 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 rapid surface change tracking.

Moreover, the advanced signal processing function prevents the impact of falling material or splashing on measurement precision and gives reliable measurement results in dusty, foggy, narrow, and mixing environments. Even clear liquids are measureable and are no longer a limitation.

The LLT100 embodies ABB’s ‘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, and HART communication makes it convenient to use. It comes with an industrial IP 67 / Nema4x and is approved for hazardous areas (class 1/division 1 (zone 1)) for use in challenging industrial environments.
