“We have remote level sensors operating reliably in Alaska, the Australian Outback, and just about every climate in between.” Doug Boehm, Founder and CTO of Senix.

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 are designed for larger remote tank applications or for installation 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). These new sensors join the previously released ToughSonic REMOTE 14 to complete the REMOTE sensor family.
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. “The technology behind these new sensors has been field-proven in all 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.”
The ToughSonic REMOTE 30 and REMOTE 50 ultrasonic sensors are IP68/NEMA-6P immersion rated and include Senix Lightning Guard, a system that protects power and communications circuits from repeated 7 kilovolt electrical surges. “Senix customers are installing remote water level sensors where thousands of lightning strikes a year are common. Nothing stops a direct strike, but 7kV surge protection allows sensors to survive transients from nearby strikes.” Says Doug Boehm.
Serial data communications with Modbus or ASCII protocols allow ToughSonic REMOTE sensors to communicate directly with Remote Terminal Units (RTUs) and other data collection devices. They are ready to measure within one second of power-on and use up to 21% less energy than our general purpose products – important when sensors are powered by solar panels and batteries.
