ToughSonic Ultrasonic Sensor Overview

Ultrasonic sensors made in the USASenix 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.
