Non-contacting ultrasonic level control and flow measurement
Ultra 5 provides flexible and reliable non-contacting ultrasonic level and volume measurement, advanced pump control and measures open channel flow to BS ISO 1438 and 4359. Ultra 5 is available as a wall, panel, fascia or 19″ rack mount (visit our mounting options page for more information).
An optional Radio Telemetry System may be fitted to the Ultra 5 controller which has a 3km (1.86miles) line-of-sight range. Up to 48 Nodes can be used using a ‘Multihop’ receiver installation.
Advanced Ultra Range Features
Ultra 5 offers the same features as the Ultra 3 controller but also with the added benefit of more advanced features:
Level and Volume:
Ultra 5 is perfect for the wide range of level measurement applications, featuring five control relays and a measurement range from 125mm to 40m. Offers optional 4-20mA input for a pressure transmitter or similar. Includes pre-programmed tank shape conversion for a variety of standard tank shapes. Unusual shapes are also accommodated through the 32 point linearisation function.
Ultra 5 give you advanced pump control functions including:
- Power run-on
- Pump exercising
- Start point variation
- Storm control feature
- Aeration control
- Flush valve control
Ultra 5 offers the inclusion of differential level capability using two transducers. With one upstream and the other downstream of a screen or penstock, an alarm or control signal is initiated as the difference between the level exceeds a user-defined limit to automatically operate the cleaning mechanism.
Open channel flow:
Ultra 5 provides non-contacting, flow measurement and control in a wide range of flumes and weirs with 2 additional relays.
Ultra Wizard is an on-board, menu-driven software tool that allows the user to quickly and simply set up an Ultra 5 unit for a specific application. The user is led into a ‘Quick Setup’ menu specific to the application chosen that allows parameters such as empty and full distances and alarm/control relay settings to be entered. The majority of applications will be ‘ready to go’. This unit can also be configured using Pulsar’s PC Suite software.

Ultra Data Logger
Pulsar’s Ultra Data Logger provides wall mounted Ultra Controllers with data logging functionality.
Ultra Data Logger records a wealth of information onto the supplied 8GB Micro SD card enabling you to log a wealth of data for the lifetime of the unit – for example, when set to log at 30 second intervals, the logging period is 19,884 days (54.5 years). Log interval is user selectable and logged files are stored in .csv format which can be used with the most widely used spreadsheet software.
