Senix Introduces Long-Range Level Sensors For Remote Monitoring

Senix Corporation, manufacturer of ToughSonic® ultrasonic level and distance sensors, has introduced two new remote liquid level sensors. The ToughSonic REMOTE 30 and REMOTE 50 digital ultrasonic sensors are lightning-resistant and energy efficient for demanding outdoor 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).  They join the previously released ToughSonic REMOTE 14 to complete the Senix REMOTE sensor family.

Liquid Level Sensors Built For The Great Outdoors

Increasing droughts and floods around the world are driving investment in sophisticated water level monitoring systems.  The ToughSonic REMOTE family of sensors are designed for those demanding applications. They 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 Senix Lightning Guard, a system that protects power and communications circuits from repeated 7 kilovolt electrical surges.

Senix customers rely on ToughSonic REMOTE liquid level sensors in places where thousands of lightning strikes a year are common such as Northern Australia where the sensors monitor irrigation assets. Nothing stops a direct lighting strike, but 7 kilovolt surge protection allows sensors to survive transients from nearby strikes.

ToughSonic 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 are fully configurable using SenixVIEW sensor configuration and analysis software.
