Basic description

The two red LED displays of the H520 level meter show the measured level in meters with a resolution of 0.1 m and the percentage level relative to the set maximum possible level. The percentage value is also clearly shown on the bar graph.

The electronics of the H520 level meter is completely built into the plastic lid of the box measuring 80 x 120 x 15 mm. The level gauge can therefore be mounted on the front panel of the switchboard or on the dashboard of the vehicle with a tank and without the lower part of the box.

The H520 level meter does not have its own power supply battery and therefore requires the supply of an external supply voltage in the range of 8 to 28 V DC / 0.15 A.

The H520 level meter does not allow remote access to measured data such as data loggers H1 to H40 or smart metering modules H530 and H531.

Pump or solenoid valve control

The transistor output signal of the level meter can switch an external relay according to user-set parameters.

Submersible Level Transmitter TSH 27

Measurement principle: The TSH27 sensor uses an absolute pressure sensor that measures the hydrostatic pressure of the water above the sensor, including the atmospheric air pressure. In the H520 evaluation unit, the atmospheric air pressure measured by the H520 is subtracted from the sensor output signal. The principle of absolute pressure measurement allows the connection of the TSH27 sensor to the H520 level meter with a standard 3-core cable without the usual atmospheric pressure compensation capillary and thus significantly reduces the cost of the measuring set.

The measuring range of the sensor is 0 to 10 m of water column (TSH27-10) or 0 to 25 m v.s. (TSH27-25). The basic length of the connecting PUR cable with which the sensor is equipped also corresponds to the measuring range.

Alternative level sensors

Using switches and jumpers, an alternative type of connected level sensor can be selected: probes with a current output of 4-20 mA and a ceramic membrane for heavily polluted water (LMK809) or a stainless steel membrane for general use (TSH35).

Level sensor installation

It is enough to simply lower the sensor over the cable into the measured object (wells, wells, ...) to such a position that even at the assumed minimum level it is still immersed and at the maximum height of the level in the measured object the measuring range of the sensor 10 m (25 m ).

If necessary, the sensor connection cable can be extended. However, due to the reliability of operation, we recommend placing the H520 unit close to the measurement in order to avoid overvoltage induction in the connecting cable or balancing of different earth potentials during storms.

H520 settings

Using the 3 UP, MENU and DOWN buttons located on the back of the device, the parameters can be set by the user for the optimal display of the measured level and possibly also the pump control or alarm signaling:

  • Zero shift [m]: the value of this bipolar parameter is added to the level measured by the sensor itself
  • Maximum 100% [m]: required maximum level height for percentage expression
  • On and Off limits [m]: binary output control



In addition to this basic parameter setting, an alternative level sensor with a 4-20 mA current output can be selected instead of the TSH27 sensor using switches and jumpers on the H520 board.

Detailed information regarding the installation of the level meter and the setting of its parameters is given in the manual for the device.
