ToughSonic 50 ultrasonic sensors have a maximum range of 50 feet (15.2 meters). Like all Toughsonic sensors, they are built for durability and ease of use in tough industrial environments. ToughSonic 50s are fully immersible, corrosion resistant, shock resistant and all around tough. They are also fully configurable with SenixVIEW software.
ToughSonic 50s are available in three different housings, each with either RS-232 or RS-485 serial interfaces. These 9-wire sensors allow up to six simultaneous serial, analog and/or switch outputs. These workhorse sensors are used around the world in remote liquid level applications and harsh factory environments.
For shorter range applications or for chemically resistant sensors, please see the rest of our ToughSonic and ToughSonic CHEM models.
ToughSonic 50 Options
The ToughSonic 50 is available in three different housings. All sensor features are available with any housing.
Our Standard Model (TSPC-21S) comes in a 2.1 inch (53.34 millimeter) smooth 316 stainless steel housing for easy clamping.
The Rear Mount Model (TSPC-21SRM) adds a stainless steel end cap with 1.5 inch NPT threading to the 2.1 inch smooth standard housing.
The PVC Model (TSPC-25P) is packaged in a 2.5 inch PVC housing with 2.5 inch NPT threading on either end for tank level applications.
The ToughSonic 50 is available with one of the following Modbus serial data interfaces.
Modbus RS-232 serial data interface
Modbus RS-485 serial data interface
- Custom SenixVIEW configurations can be pre-loaded.
- Alternative cable type, length and connections are available
