Programming the LPU-2428 for Distance Measurement


The LPU-2428 can do all kinds of things, from open channel flow to submersible transducer replacement. However, it often needs to return to its roots and do some simple distance measurement. This quick video shows how to program the LPU-2428 for good ol' fashioned distance measurement.

Narrator: You’re watching APGTV. I’m Shaw Merrill, and today we’re going to show you how to program your LPU-2428 ultrasonic sensor to measure distance using the LPU-2428 programming software.

To begin programming the LPU-2428 click on the basic set up button on the left of the screen.

Then, select the units to be displayed on the right. In this example we’ll select feet.

Next, set the application to distance.

Press the send button near the bottom of the screen to send these settings to the sensor. Wait until the progress bar completes to continue to the next step.

Now we’re ready to set up the parameters. Click the application set up button.

You’ll see a max distance setting on this screen. This is the maximum distance you want to measure from the sensor face, or, in other words, how far you want the sensor to look.

Next, click the 4-20 set up button on the left menu to set your minimum milliamp set point, this is the 4mA setting, and the maximum milliamp set point, this is the 20mA setting.

These settings will provide the output reading from your sensor.

Press the send button to save these settings, and wait for the progress bar to complete.

Your sensor is now set up and ready to go! The remaining advanced features in the programming software will default to automatic settings. To change these settings, please refer to the LPU-2428 user manual programming section.

Thanks for watching our quick LPU-2428 programming demo. If you have any questions, give us a call at 888-525-7300, or send us an email to Until next time, I’m Shaw Merrill, APGTV.
