The CHEM series sensors and SenixVIEW software put the power of ultrasonics in your hands. Adjust, optimize, save and clone your applications quickly without calibration! These sensors are contained in a rugged, chemically inert PVDF sealed housing for long life. They mount above the material surface and measure distance downward without contact. All outputs
respond simultaneously to the measured distance. Applications include pump control, bulk inventory, flumes/weirs, batch processing, water management and high/low level alarms.
