Instrotech, the local representative of Senix Corporation, offers ToughSonic sensors, waterproof and housed in stainless steel, which have become the “flood sensor” of choice for flood monitoring systems around the world. Many governmental organisations select Senix for their exceptional engineering and customer support to help monitor and respond to rising seas and flooding.
These sensors feature built-in digital filtering which distills pulses taken over several seconds down to a single measurement output to the monitoring system. This filter excludes extraneous objects, such as birds, bugs, people, vehicles, debris, etc., which may pass through the ultrasonic beam. The extensive filtering capabilities determines the average of wave heights or water levels.
Ruggedly built, with 316 stainless steel housings, they have potted, and protected polyurethane shielded cables and heavy-duty electronics. With an IP68 rating, they are tough enough for outdoor use. Built-in temperature sensing helps accommodate for diurnal changes.
They integrate with other equipment such as a system’s cellular modems, solar panels, on-board clocks, and other equipment. Built in switches can control alarms, lights, sirens, motors, pumps, etc.
The sensor is easy to set up with either the Senix push-button TEACH technology, or through a PC with free SenixVIEW software offering nearly 80 user-configurable parameters which can be adjusted to tailor each sensor to its unique application.
