Senix ToughSonic Ultrasonic Transmitters perform distance and level measurements with “non-contact” technology, requiring a minimum working distance to the liquid. Elevating the sensor has been one solution, but now there is a better way, according to according to local distributors Instrotech.

“When used with new Senix 90 Degree Adaptor, users can achieve the minimal working distance without raising the sensor for a more compact installation,” the company said in a statement.

“The ultrasonic dead band is essentially inside the adaptor so filling a container won't interfere with measurement, and the sensor's maximum range is unaffected.”

Fill the tank and still measure level accurately

This stainless steel adapter is now available for all 1" NPT threaded ToughSonic 3, ToughSonic 12, and ToughSonic 14 sensors. The sensors perform distance and level measurements that measure the liquid or other surface from above.

“They're tough and used in some of the harshest factory environments anywhere. Senix makes them smart too. They come with Senix's new Reference Target Temperature Compensation technology to eliminate drifting from diurnal effects such as rapid temperature shifts.”

The company said the sensors are widely used in closed tanks and stilling tubes, in open-air monitoring for irrigation, stream monitoring, flood and tsunami warnings, and sea level monitoring, as well as installed in heavy construction and farm equipment.

“ToughSonic Ultrasonic sensors are exceptional for accurate object detection in a variety of applications.”

They also have built-in switches which can control relays, light alarms, motors, and more.

“Steady, repeatable, accurate, easy to use, and extremely rugged; thousands are installed throughout the world. Senix makes them specifically for where a tank level requires a rugged, compact ultrasonic installation, there is an equally rugged adaptor available.”
