ToughSonic 3 Ultrasonic Level and Distance Sensor

ToughSonic 3 Ultrasonic Level and Distance Sensor

The ToughSonic 3 ultrasonic sensor has a maximum range of 3 feet (91 centimeters). This sensor was designed for applications where the larger maximum range and/or the wider ultrasonic beam of the ToughSonic 14 prevents its usage. If your application can accept the ToughSonic 14’s operating parameters, we recommend that you use it. If you need a smaller minimum range or smaller ultrasonic beam size, then the ToughSonic 3 is an excellent alternative.

The ToughSonic 3 has the same 30 millimeter stainless steel housing as the ToughSonic 14. It features a short 1.75 inch (4.5 centimeter) minimum range and a narrow ultrasonic beam width for measuring in tight spaces. And, like all ToughSonic sensors, it’s built for durability and ease of use in tough industrial environments. It’s fully submersible, corrosion resistant, shock resistant and all around tough. It’s also fully configurable with our SenixVIEW software or with our famous “Teach” feature for push button configuration.

For longer range applications or for chemically resistant sensors, please see our full line of ToughSonic and ToughSonic CHEM sensors..

Manufacturer Model TSPC-30S2-485 comes with 0-10V output, 4-20mA output, Open Collector output and RS485 Modbus RTU interface. The sensor is equipped with 2 m of cable but other lengths can be ordered as an optional extra.
