Product Details

EchoMax XRS-5 ultrasonic transducer provides reliable, continuous level monitoring of liquids and slurries in narrow lift stations/ wet wells, flumes, weirs and filter beds using a beam angle of just 10° and a CSM rubber face.


  • Narrow beam angle of only 10°
  • Chemically resistant PVDF copolymer enclosure and CSM rubber face
  • Measuring range: 8 m (26 ft) for measurement of liquids and slurries
  • Fully submersible: IP68 degree of protection
  • Easy installation with 1″ NPT or R 1″ BSPT connection


The XRS-5 is non-contacting with a measuring range from 0.3 … 8 m (1 … 26 ft). Advanced echo processing ensures reliable data even in conditions with obstructions, turbulence and foam.

The hermetically sealed CSM rubber face and the PVDF copoly- mer enclosure are designed for maximum resistance to methane, salt water, caustics and harsh chemicals common to waste-water installations. With an IP68 degree of protection, this rugged sensor is fully submersible in the event of flood conditions. Use a submergence shield if full submergence is possible in the application. A submergence shield will maintain a high level reading output during submerged conditions.

The low-cost XRS-5 transducer is compatible with a full range of Siemens controllers, from a basic system for high/low alarm or simple pump control, up to advanced control systems with com- munications, telemetry and SCADA integration capabilities.

Key Applications: wet wells, flumes, weirs, filter beds
