ToughSonic 14 Ultrasonic Sensor
Like all ToughSonic sensors, it’s built for durability and ease of use in tough industrial environments. It’s fully submersible, corrosion resistant, shock resistant and all around tough. It’s also fully configurable with our SenixVIEW software, or “Teachable” by push-button. This compact sensor is used around the world on remote liquid level systems, heavy equipment, factory automation applications and more. This is our most popular sensor.
For longer range applications or for chemically resistant sensors, please see our full line of ToughSonic and ToughSonic CHEM sensors.
