Common Ultrasonic Sensor Applications

Senix ToughSonic ultrasonic sensors are used around the world in hundreds of industries and applications by Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), System Integrators (SIs) and end users. They are used indoors and outdoors in harsh conditions and they have the versatility to adapt to a wide range of application requirements. The applications we serve can be grouped into  three broad categories:

Liquid Level

Bulk tank liquid level sensorToughSonic ultrasonic sensors are used around the world to measure liquid level in tanks, streams, channels, weirs and even oceans. They measure benign, acidic, caustic, and hazardous liquids under a wide range of environmental conditions. Senix sensors are used for flow monitoring, process control, pump control, liquid inventory and environmental monitoring for irrigation management, flood detection and more.

Distance Measurement

They are able to measure whether an object is approaching or leaving even when objects are moving fast. Senix sensors measure distance in the printing, converting, material handling, aerospace, transportation and many other industries.  Read more about these applications on our distance measurement page.

Object Detection
