Level Measurement & Control


Senix level and distance sensors

June 2014 Level Measurement & Control

Senix has introduced the ToughSonic LVL family, a range of level and distance sensors designed for non-contact level or distance measurement up to 10,7 metres, depending on the model.

Housed in a small PVDF package, these sensors withstand exposure to chemically aggressive industrial environments, survive submersion (protection to IP68) and include a potted-in cable. Threads are provided at both the top and bottom to allow either suspended or flange installation.

The LVL operates over a wide temperature range of -40 to 70°C and humidity range of 0 – 100%, and the sensor includes multiple simultaneous analogue and switch outputs. Other user-adjustable functions are filters, timers, time delays, switch set points and polarity, condition response of all outputs and synchronisation.

The optional SenixView computer software provides adjustment, viewing, analysis, maintenance and cloning without recalibration, whether for one or a network of sensors, making it ideal for OEM or maintenance operations where time saving is important. Serial data communications is via RS-485 Modbus protocol.

With all the features available for the LVL Series, users can create complete ‘mini’ systems without additional external hardware. A typical application example is driving a pump or valve to control liquid level.
