Description

The Model Q46/88 is an on-line monitoring system designed for the continuous measurement of suspended solids in water. It is intended for continuous monitoring of aeration tank mixed liquor, clarifier effluent, industrial process water, and other applications containing relatively high levels of suspended solids.

The system provides measurement over one of three selectable operating ranges, 0-100.0 mg/L, 0-1000 mg/L, or 0-10.00 g/L. The sensing element used for suspended solids measurement is an optical sensor measuring infrared “backscatter”, a method suitable for high solids levels. For applications where sensor fouling is frequent, an Auto-Clean version of the system is available that uses ATI’s Q-Blast air cleaner assembly.

Key Facts

  • Flexibility. Wide range capability, with selectable ranges of 0-100.0 mg/L, 0-1000 mg/L, or 0-10.00 g/L provide maximum application flexibility.
  • Sensor Diagnostics. System automatically checks for sensor fouling, “dry cell”, and light source intensity.
  • Auto-Cleaning. Automatic “Air Blast” sensor cleaning system available for reducing maintenance in applications where sensor fouling is a problem.
  • AC or DC Power Options. Power options include universal 100-240 VAC +/- 10%, or 12-24 VDC.
  • Analog Output Options. Two isolated 4-20 mA outputs are standard, with an option for a third output if required. Default setting provides analog outputs for suspended solids and temperature.
  • Extra Outputs. Expansion board to add a third 4-20 mA analog output or to add three additional non-isolated low power relays.
  • PID Output. Standard PID control function assignable to one analog output.
  • Relay Contacts. Three SPDT relays are standard, with relay functions programmable for alarm, control, or trouble indication. Three additional low power relays available as an option.
  • Clear Display. Back-lit large LCD display provides clear visibility in any lighting condition. A scrolling second line on the display provides additional information and programming prompts.
  • Digital Communications. Communication options for Profibus-DP, Modbus-RTU, Modbus-TCP/IP or Ethernet-IP.
  • Flexible Mounting. NEMA 4X (IP-66) enclosure is suitable for wall, pipe, or panel mounting.
