Senix non-contact ToughSonic® ultrasonic sensors offer cost-effective, continuous level measurement for small and large tanks. They install at the top of the tank, are not immersed in the liquid, and can measure both benign and chemical liquids.

ToughSonic General Purpose sensors easily handle these liquids. Rugged construction, corrosion resistant materials, a wide environmental operating range and a liquid-tight IP68 ingress rating make them ideal for indoor and outdoor use – even in salt water and hydrogen sulfide (H2S) environments.Products are offered in a variety of distance ranges to accommodate tanks ranging from 6 in (15 cm) to 50 feet (15.2m), with various mounting threads and accessories available. All ToughSonic sensors include analog, switch and data interfaces and compatible setup software, included at no charge.
ToughSonic CHEM sensors expand the range of environments in which our sensors operate. Some common chemicals can damage or corrode sensor materials, even 316 stainless steel. Transducer elements and bonding adhesives are also susceptible. Our CHEM sensors avoid these problems by using a continuous injection molded housing of Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), a highly non-reactive thermoplastic that resists solvents, acids and hydrocarbons.CHEM sensors have both top and bottom mounting threads and include a potted-in, PUR-jacketed, UV resistant cable.

The ToughSonic General Purpose and ToughSonic CHEM product lines all have multiple analog and switch outputs compatible with most industrial equipment, plus a serial data communications interface for SenixVIEW software setup or user applications.Analog outputs can be proportional to tank level or volume. Switch outputs can control pumps and valves, or indicate low or high alarm conditions. Simple level controls can be created with only a sensor and an external relay option. Outputs are user-configured with SenixVIEW setup software. Setups are permanently stored in the sensor, and can be saved and duplicated in other sensors without re-calibrating. Some models have 5 simultaneous outputs while others have 2 SenixVIEW selected outputs. All sensors have a serial data interface, and all outputs operate concurrently.
SafeSonic models are available as either 4-20 mA loop powered or with RS-485 Modbus communications.
Outputs, ToughSonic 30, 50 and CHEM products
Digital controller accessories display level measurements and/or provide outputs to control other equipment. Tank levels can be displayed as level or volume in any units. Relay output options control pumps, valves or level alarms. Measurements can also be re-transmitted to additional displays or equipment at other locations. Other features include:
Displays are sold individually, with or without housings, or Senix can custom build a packaged system according to customer requirements.
