Senix ToughSonic® ultrasonic sensors measure level and distance through the air using ultrasonic sound waves. They provide fast, reliable non-contact measurements at distances up to 50 feet (15.2 meters). Thousands of our sensors are in use worldwide in some of the most demanding distance measurement environments.
General Purpose Ultrasonic Sensors
All Senix General Purpose Sensors come standard with 316 stainless steel housings, ruggedized piezoelectric ultrasonic transducers, epoxy potting, rear status indicators and a permanently attached 2 meter cable. These rugged, IP68 immersion-rated sensors can be used indoors or outdoors.
Chemically Resistant Ultrasonic Sensors
ToughSonic CHEM sensors are designed for measurement applications where corrosive chemical liquids or gasses are present. Their integral injection molded PVDF housings and full epoxy potting provide IP68 immersion protection. The upper and lower threading options and easy tank installation also make them a good choice for benign liquid level applications. Each model includes rugged piezoelectric transducers, hardened electronics, a 2 meter permanently attached cable and SenixVIEW sensor configuration and analysis software.
ToughSonic® CHEM sensors will soon be available with AirWire® BLE technology to add convenience and safety to maintenance operations. AirWire adds a wireless link to the the standard wired models to allow customers to approach active sensors and, from a safe distance, view sensor performance and adjust sensor operating parameters with a Windows PC, and in the future a cell phone or tablet.
Remote Level Ultrasonic Sensors
ToughSonic REMOTE sensors are designed for demanding remote monitoring applications such as irrigation management, flood warning and remote tank level measurement. They are up to 21% more energy efficient then our general purpose sensors and Senix Lightning Guard protection allows them to withstand repeated electrical surges up to 7 kilovolts. These IP68-rated sensors include rugged piezoelectric transducers, hardened electronics, a 2 meter permanently attached cable and SenixVIEW sensor configuration and analysis software.
