Self-contained ultrasonic sensor from Scientific Technologies Inc., Automation Products Group, uses microprocessor technology to generate accurate level, presence/absence, volume, proximity, and distance measurements.

Logan, UT —IRU-5110 Series self-contained ultrasonic sensors from Scientific Technologies Inc ., Automation Products Group, are compact (113.1 x 76.2 mm; 4.45 in. x 3 in.) and easy to mount. They work on solids or liquids and provide a sensing range from 76 to 2,000 mm (3 to 79 in.). Available outputs include 0-5 or 0-2.5 V dc, or 4-20 mA or 4-20 mA with two programmable NPN transistor trips.

Devices provide a way to detect level, presence/absence, volume, proximity, and distance measurements. They incorporate microprocessor technology that reportedly accommodates for environmental factors, such as temperature change, waves on liquid, tank irregularities, agitators, and humidity, among others, for highly accurate measurements. Sensor adjustments are made over a computer USB interface using an RST-3001 module (sold separately) and Microsoft Windows-compatible software.
