Ultrasonic sensor for wireless tank monitoring applications
Banner Engineering’s Sure Cross U-GAGE K50U ultrasonic sensor is designed for use in wireless tank monitoring applications. Optimized for use with Banner’s Q45U Wireless Node, the pair are designed to provide a plug-and-play solution to monitor levels in mobile or remotely located tanks and totes. The K50U can detect distance from target to sensor in ranges between 300 mm and 3 m, and features built-in temperature compensation designed for accurate measurements. The sensor is also an ideal solution for a range of applications beyond liquid or chemical tank level monitoring, such as pallet presence sensing or monitoring dry material level in a hopper. The K50U is available in two models, with a 1-wire serial interface or a model that functions as a Modbus slave via RS-485. Compatible with a wide range of Banner Engineering wireless nodes, the K50U provides reliable sensing for a single sensor application or integrated as part of a multiple sensor, long distance multi-hop network.
