HINESBURG, VT (USA) – Senix Corporation, manufacturer of ToughSonic® ultrasonic level and distance sensors, has introduced two new liquid level sensors. The ToughSonic REMOTE 30 and ToughSonic REMOTE 50 are designed for larger remote tank applications or for mounting on bridges or piers in water level monitoring applications.
The ToughSonic REMOTE 30 has a maximum range of 30 feet (9.1 meters) and the ToughSonic REMOTE 50 has a maximum range of 50 feet (15.2 meters).
The new sensors join the previously released ToughSonic REMOTE 14 to complete the Senix REMOTE sensor family.
Liquid Level Sensors Built For The Great Outdoors
The ToughSonic REMOTE family of sensors are rugged, stainless steel, immersion-rated (NEMA-4X, NEMA-6P, IP68) sensors designed for years of reliable service in harsh remote monitoring environments. “The technology behind these new sensors has been field-proven in diverse weather conditions since 2011.” Says Doug Boehm, founder and CTO of Senix Corporation. “We have remote level sensors operating reliably in Alaska, the Australian Outback, and just about every climate in between.”
Remote Liquid Level Monitoring Features
ToughSonic REMOTE sensors include a digital interface using Modbus serial data or ASCII protocols for direct communication with remote terminal units (RTUs) and other data collection devices. They also feature enhanced surge protection for operation in lightning prone areas. Senix customers rely on ToughSonic REMOTE liquid level sensors in places where thousands of lightning strikes a year are common, like Northern Australia where the sensors are used to monitor irrigation assets. Nothing stops a direct strike, but 7kV surge protection allows sensors to survive transients from nearby strikes.
REMOTE sensors are ready to measure within one second of power-on and use up to 21% less energy than our General Purpose ToughSonic sensors which is important when sensors are operated intermittently and powered by batteries and solar panels.
ToughSonic REMOTE sensors come with Senix’s one year product warranty and they are fully configurable using SenixVIEW sensor configuration and analysis software.
