Wireless tank level monitoring
November 2016, Industrial Wireless


Banner Engineering has introduced the Sure Cross U-Gage K50U ultrasonic sensor for use in wireless tank monitoring applications. Optimised for use with Banner’s Q45U wireless node, the pair provides a cost effective, plug-and-play solution to monitor levels in mobile or remotely located tanks and totes.

The K50U reliably detects distance from target to sensor in ranges between 300 mm up to 3 m, and features built-in temperature compensation for accurate measurements. The sensor features a standard connection and can be combined with the optional BWA-BK-006 bracket and Q45U wireless node (sold separately) for an easy to mount, IEC IP67, NEMA 6P level monitoring solution.

“Paired with our Q45U wireless node, the K50U delivers a turnkey, single-sensor remote monitoring solution that is both rugged and affordable,” said Tim Hazelton, wireless product manager, Banner Engineering. “It can also function as a component within a much larger, more complex network with Banner’s many wireless sensors and nodes. Customers who purchase our DXM100 programmable controllers can take full advantage of this solution, and set high-high, high, low, and low-low alarms.”

The sensor is also an ideal solution for a range of applications beyond liquid or chemical tank level monitoring, such as pallet presence sensing or monitoring dry material level in a hopper. The K50U is available in two models, with a 1-wire serial interface or a model that functions as a Modbus slave via RS-485. Compatible with a wide range of Banner Engineering wireless nodes, the K50U provides reliable sensing for a single sensor application, or as part of a multiple sensor, long distance multi-hop network.
