Senix Introduces ToughSonic Remote 30/50 Sensors
Senix Corporation introduces two new liquid level sensors, the ToughSonic Remote 30 and ToughSonic Remote 50, 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), according to the company. The new sensors join the ToughSonic Remote 14 to complete the Senix Remote sensor family. 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.
ToughSonic Remote sensors are rugged, stainless steel, immersion-rated (NEMA-4X, NEMA-6P, IP68) sensors designed for harsh remote monitoring environments. They feature Senix Lightning Guard, a system that reportedly protects power and communications circuits from repeated 7 kilovolt electrical surges. 7kV surge protection allows sensors to survive transients from nearby strikes. ToughSonic Remote liquid level sensors are used in places where thousands of lightning strikes a year are common like Northern Australia where the sensors are used to monitor irrigation assets, according to the company.
