Senix ToughSonic® Ultrasonic Transmitters perform water monitoring with “non-contact” technology that looks down at the water surface from above. These sensors are used in open air and in stilling tubes that constrain the sound and improve performance. They are easy to use and reliable, and thousands are installed in applications around the world for irrigation, stream monitoring, flood and tsunami warnings and sea level monitoring.
Here are just some of the many other water level applications for
Senix ToughSonic sensors:
Whether used indoors or out, ToughSonic® sensors can take abuse. Solid state electronic components are epoxy potted into stainless steel housings, and there are no mechanical parts to break. IEC compliant electrical interfaces are protected from reversed connections and over-voltages.
These distance measurement sensors connect with all common types of automation and telemetry equipment. Applications range from simple analog connections to sophisticated multi-sensor data networks. Our sensors are cost effective because flexible connectivity is embedded in the sensor’s software – power that you can unlock with the SenixVIEW PC software included with every sensor. Push-button “teach” is also included in many models.
ToughSonic® ultrasonic sensors are used to measure the level of channels, canals and gates to control the distribution of irrigation water. The sensors connect with SCADA systems and are compatible with battery operation, and used worldwide by irrigation districts and water providers.
Murray Irrigation, Australia’s largest private environmental and irrigation water delivery company, uses the ToughSonic 14 to manage water distribution to many of their approximately 2,200 landholdings throughout southern New South Wales. Customers on their PIIOP program can order, sell and buy water from their cell phone using telemetry-enabled, automated and/or remote-controlled technology. Please see our article on this project.
Senix ToughSonic® sensors measure the level of water flowing in streams and rivers. Sensors mounted on bridges and other structures look down at the water to report flood status via telemetry. The Iowa Flood Center (IFC) was formed in 2009 to engage in flood-related projects to help Iowans understand their flood risks and make better decisions. In 2010 they chose ToughSonic sensors for their new Iowa Flood Information System (IFIS) and over several years that system has added over 200 monitoring sites using ToughSonic 50 sensors. Please see our article on the IFIS system for additional information.
