Senix Research Assist for Ultrasonic Sensors

Creating a formal Research Assist program will help better serve the needs of researchers and educators.

Senix Corporation, manufacturer of ToughSonic® ultrasonic level and distance sensors, today announced “Research Assist,” a formal program to support the use of ultrasonic sensors in research and education.
With the Research Assist program, qualified organizations can purchase Senix ultrasonic sensors at a 30 percent discount for use in primary research and student education. The program is available worldwide to university and government research programs, to museums, and to other non-profit organizations dedicated to environmental stewardship, learning, and cultural enrichment.

Research Assist replaces a long-term informal program whereby Senix provided discounted ToughSonic® sensors to more than 100 universities worldwide as they addressed environmental monitoring, sustainable agriculture, energy efficiency, and engineering education.

“Ultrasonic sensors can be the ideal tool for collecting accurate, real-time data about object and material dynamics in both applied and experimental environments,” said Bryan Ducharme, chief executive officer, Senix Corporation. “In recent years, Senix has seen a marked increase in the demand for Senix ultrasonic sensors from research organizations worldwide. Creating a formal Research Assist program will help better serve the needs of researchers and educators.”

Several pioneering sensor applications began with discounted Senix sensors including:
The world’s largest Tsunami Early Warning System in the Philippines.
The world’s most sophisticated flood monitoring system by the Iowa Flood Center.

Senix also has contributed to numerous student education and research programs including:
A solar powered boat developed by students at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands.

A series of mechanical engineering experiments at Duke University in North Carolina, USA.
