Special pricing for Senix ToughSonic® sensors is available to support university and government research projects, student education
HINESBURG, VT (USA) – August 18, 2015 – Senix Corporation, manufacturer of ToughSonic® ultrasonic level and distance sensors, today announced “Research Assist,” a formal program to support the use of ultrasonic sensors in research and education.
With the Research Assist program, qualified organizations can purchase Senix ultrasonic sensors at a 20 percent discount for use in primary research and student education. The program is available worldwide to university and government research programs, to museums, and to other non-profit organizations dedicated to environmental stewardship, learning, and cultural enrichment.
Research Assist replaces a long-term informal program whereby Senix provided discounted ToughSonic® sensors to more than 100 universities worldwide as they addressed environmental monitoring, sustainable agriculture, energy efficiency, and engineering education.
“Ultrasonic sensors can be the ideal tool for collecting accurate, real-time data about object and material dynamics in both applied and experimental environments,” said Tim Cetto, chief executive officer, Senix Corporation. “In recent years, we’ve seen a marked increase in the demand for Senix ultrasonic sensors from research organizations worldwide. Creating a formal Research Assist program will help better serve the needs of researchers and educators.”
Several pioneering sensor applications began with discounted Senix sensors including:
- The world’s largest Tsunami Early Warning System in the Philippines
- The world’s most sophisticated flood monitoring system in Iowa
