Today’s advanced ultrasonic sensors can be configured to handle a wide range of level and distance measurement applications. We’ve provided several examples in the Sensor Insight technical brief, “Techniques for using ultrasonic sensors in challenging applications.”
- Measure liquid level when there is turbidity or obstacles in the measurement path
- Detect the presence of irregularly shaped objects
- Handle sound reverberations in tank level measurements
- Synchronizing a group of sensors to work as one
- Take 3-dimensional measurements of objects.
Non-contact ultrasonic sensors have many advantages. They’re rugged, low maintenance, and cost-effective. They operate regardless of a target’s color, lighting, optical transparency or reflectivity. The techniques outlined in this Senix Sensor Insight will allow you to leverage cost-effective ultrasonic sensors as broadly and successfully as possible.
