ToughSonic Sensors Guide Solar Boat

Senix Corporation is once again a proud sponsor of the Solar Boat team at Technical University Delft in the Netherlands. Senix ultrasonic sensors play a key role in controlling the hydrofoiling process which, in turn, provides much of the boat’s energy efficiency. The engineering students at TU Delft unveiled their new boat design at the Amsterdam Boat show this week.

Ultrasonic Object Detection Sensors Reduce Costs on the Farm

The innovative Sonic Spray attachment from farm equipment manufacturer Gillison’s Variety Fabrication, Inc. (GVF) uses Senix ultrasonic object detection sensors to detect orchard trees and precisely control the application of sprayed materials. Sonic Spray growers use 25% to 40% less spray material. The GVF Sonic Spray saves farmers money by reducing the amount of spray material used, simply […]


Philippines Flood Warning System Expands

Philippines flood warning system expands

Senix Corporation today announced the expansion of the Philippines Flood Warning System, which relies on Senix’s ultrasonic level and distance sensors to monitor coastal, river and urban flooding. Senix water level sensors play a key role in monitoring the risks associated with tropical rains, storm surges and tsunamis which make the archipelago among the most flood prone in the world.


Senix sensors monitor Philippine flooding

Senix sensors monitor Philippine flooding

A variety of factors make the Philippines, and especially the Manila region, among the most flood prone in the world.  Tropical rains flow rapidly from mountain uplands to the Manila basin where dense urbanization accelerates run-off. To make matters worse, Manila is built on lowlands that are getting lower due to ground water extraction and the weight of urban concrete and steel. As a result, typhoon storm surges can now extend up to 20 km inland. In addition to these weather risks, the Philippine coast is predicted to experience a Tsunami up to 10 meters high in this century.
