Drop-in ULTRA-S replacements offered using current generation ToughSonic® ultrasonic sensors and adaptor housings
HINESBURG, VT – January 1, 2015 – Senix Corporation, a world leader in industrial ultrasonic sensors, announced today that it is discontinuing its ULTRA-S® line of ultrasonic sensors. The ULTRA-S was launched in 1993 as Senix’s first ultrasonic sensor designed specifically for end users. It was AC powered and housed in an industry-standard LMB electrical box for ease of maintenance by plant electricians.
For more than two decades, the ULTRA-S has been one of the most widely used ultrasonic distance measurement sensors in the converting and material management industries. Because of its durability, sensitivity, and broad configuration capabilities, the ULTRA-S sensor has been used extensively by industry leaders like 3M, Vulcan Machines and others.
Senix is offering ULTRA-S customers options to upgrade to its next generation ToughSonic® ultrasonic sensors, which feature advanced signal processing capabilities and programmability. All ToughSonic sensors can be configured with SenixVIEW software to set more than 60 operating parameters and to provide a wide range of display, analysis and reporting tools. ToughSonic sensors have multiple simultaneous outputs, including analog, switch, and Modbus over a serial interface. An ULTRA-S sensor can be replaced with either the ToughSonic 14, ToughSonic 30 or ToughSonic 50 sensor, depending on the target type and range.
Discontinued ULTRA-S products include the ULTRA-SP, ULTRA-SPA, ULTRA-S-RDT, and ULTRA-SBP-Vulcan sensors and associated accessory modules. Senix will continue to honor warranties of ULTRA-S products and limited replacement ULTRA-S modules will be available while supplies last. Service of ULTRA-S sensors will continue on a case-by-case basis, and requires a Senix return material authorization (RMA).
