Senix Sensors Drive Large Irrigation Project
Murray Irrigation is automating its 3,000 kilometers of irrigation channels in New South Wales with over 2,200 Senix ToughSonic ultrasonic sensors.
Water level sensors help Australian irrigation
Irrigation management is serious business in Australia especially within the Murray-Darling Basin, a 1,000,000 square kilometer watershed that is home to Australia’s most productive agricultural land. The basin’s 23 rivers have some of the lowest and most variable flows in the world. A massive system of dams, lakes and canals stores water from mountain snowmelt and seasonal rains and distributes it to farms and communities throughout the growing season.
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.
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
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.

Ultrasonic Sensors in Agricultural Automation.
Back in the 1980’s, brothers Mike, Gregg and Don Tvetene were working at their family-owned Tvetene Turf Farms in Billings, Montana. The business was faced with a critical labor shortage at the same time that it was experiencing huge demand for their turf. Out of necessity, the brothers conceived of an automatic turf harvester that […]
