00:12 PROGRAMMING TO MEASURE LEVEL
To begin programming the LPU-2428:

  1. Click on the basic setup button on the left of the screen.
  2. Select the units to be displayed on the right. In this example, we will select feet.
  3. Set the application to level.
  4. 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.

00:36 SETUP PARAMETERS
Now we are ready to set up the parameters.

  1. Click the application setup button on the left menu.
  2. Determine the full distance or the distance from the sensor face to the closest target being detected, and enter this number into the space. Remember the sensor has a one foot blanking distance.
  3. Enter the empty distance also referred to as the zero distance, or the distance from the sensor face to the farthest target being detected.

These settings tell the sensor the dimensions for a level reading.

01:06 SETUP 4 TO 20
Now click the 4 to 20 setup button on the left menu and enter your minimum milliamp set point, this is the 4 mA setting and the maximum milliamp set point, the 20 mA setting. These can be the same as the full and empty distances or they may be different depending on how you want to use the outputs. Press the send button to save these settings and wait for the progress bar to complete. Your sensor is now setup and ready to go.

01:33 ADVANCED PROGRAMMING FEATURES
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.
