Ocean Controls becomes a distributor for Senix

Ocean Controls has become a distributor for Senix Ultrasonic sensors. Manufactured in the USA, Senix ToughSonic® ultrasonic sensors measure level and distance through air using ultrasonic sound waves, often replacing unreliable mechanical devices. They provide high reliability and fast, non-contact measurements at distances up to 50 feet (15.2 meters). Thousands are in use worldwide in many industries in both indoor and outdoor applications. Senix was the first company to introduce computer-controlled ultrasonic sensors in 1990 and they have been making them tougher and smarter ever since. Senix ultrasonic sensors are designed to handle even the most challenging liquid and distance measurement applications and environments.

General Purpose ToughSonic® Ultrasonic Sensors

All Senix General Purpose Sensors come standard with 316 stainless steel housings, ruggedized piezoelectric ultrasonic transducers, epoxy potting, rear status indicators and a permanently attached 2 meter cable. These rugged, IP68 immersion-rated sensors can be used indoors or outdoors. There are 4 models in the general purpose range Toughsonic 3, Toughsonic 14, Toughsonic 30 and Toughsonic 50. Each model has multiple types of outputs allowing interfacing to other equipment easy, Outputs include 0-10V, 4-20mA, open collector and Modbus RTU.


Chemically Resistant Ultrasonic Sensors

ToughSonic CHEM sensors are designed for measurement applications where corrosive chemical liquids or gasses are present.  Their integral injection molded PVDF housings and full epoxy potting provide IP68 immersion protection.  The upper and lower threading options and easy tank installation also make them a good choice for benign liquid level applications. Each model includes rugged piezoelectric transducers, hardened electronics, a 2 meter permanently attached cable and SenixVIEW sensor configuration and analysis software. There are 3 models in the chemically resistant range Toughsonic Chem 10, Chem 20 and Chem 35. Each model has multiple types of outputs allowing interfacing to other equipment easy, Outputs include 0-10V, 4-20mA, open collector and Modbus RTU.


ToughSonic Remote Level Ultrasonic Sensors

ToughSonic REMOTE sensors are designed for demanding remote monitoring applications such as irrigation management, flood warning and remote tank level measurement.  They are up to 21% more energy efficient then our general purpose sensors and Senix Lightning Guard protection allows them to withstand repeated electrical surges up to 7 kilovolts.  These IP68-rated sensors include rugged piezoelectric transducers, hardened electronics, a 2 meter permanently attached cable and SenixVIEW sensor configuration and analysis software. There are 3 models in the remote range Toughsonic Remote 14, Remote 30 and Remote 50. Each model has serial outputs Modbus RTU and ASCII data.
