Product Update Announcement

In-situ configuration and monitoring with new AirWire models

ToughSonic® CHEM sensors will soon be available with AirWire® BLE technology to add convenience and safety to maintenance operations.  AirWire adds a wireless link to our ultrasonic sensors to allow customers to approach active sensors and, from a safe distance, view sensor performance and adjust sensor operating parameters with a Windows PC.  The sensors are conventionally wired and powered and unaffected by the wireless link.

Meet the ToughSonic CHEM family

ToughSonic CHEM family ultrasonic sensors are in service around the world in some of the most demanding and corrosive industrial environments. They measure a wide variety of materials including diesel fuel levels in rail locomotives and levels of liquid chemicals in the paper and food processing industries. ToughSonic CHEM sensors are also used in object detection and other non-liquid level applications where corrosive gasses are present.

ToughSonic CHEM sensors are sealed in Kynar® PVDF housings for protection against solvents and can withstand total immersion in harsh chemicals, both acids and bases, without damage. They include the same full-epoxy potting, heavy-duty electronics, ruggedized-piezoelectric transducers, and UV-resistant cables that make all our ToughSonic sensors robust and durable.

Several fully configurable and simultaneous outputs are provided, including serial data (RS-232 or RS-485, by model), analog (0-10 VDC and 4-20 mA) and switches (configurable as sinking or sourcing). Up to 32 RS-485 models can used in a multi-drop addressable network using the Modbus protocol – a standard feature.  ToughSonic CHEM sensors offer the configuration and operational flexibility that all Senix sensors provide. Powerful extended features can be configured using SenixVIEW software.

Optional AirWire models include the ability to configure and monitor sensors in-situ from a safe distance without shutting down equipment.

ToughSonic General Purpose sensors can also be used in liquid level applications where chemical resistance is not required.
