ToughSonic CHEM 20 Level Sensor

Product Overview

Product Datasheet

TS-chem-20
[]

The Toughsonic Chem Ultrasonic Sensors are the more rugged version of the Toughsonic General purpose line, suitable for use in diesel fuels and chemical level applications in closed or open tanks. These durable, compact ultrasonic level sensors measure a wide variety of liquids from diesel fuel in rail locomotives to chemcial tanks in the paper and food processing industries. The Toughsonic Chem 20 sensor provides non-contact measurements at distances up to 20 feet (6.1m), with an optimum range of 8 to 156 inches (200mm to 4m).  Heavy duty electronics are epoxy potted into a polyvinylidene fluroride (PVDF) housing that physically isolates the transducer and electronics from chemicals and can withstand exposure to both acids and bases. 

  • Maximum Range: 20 feet (6.1m)
  • Optimum Range:  8 inches - 156 inches (200mm to 4m)
  • Housing: Injection molded, chemically resistant Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF)
  • Mounting: Top mount: 1" NPT, Bottom mount: 1.5" Straight thread (fits NPT or BSP)
  • Outputs: 2+ serial data
  • Operating Temperature: -40 to +158°F (-40 to +70°C)

The Chem sensors are used both indoors and out, and in some of the harshest factory environments. They are also suitable in liquid level applications where chemical resistance is not a neccesity. 

  • Maximum Range: 20 feet (6.1m)
  • Optimum Range:  8 inches - 156 inches (200mm to 4m)
  • Housing: Injection molded, chemically resistant Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF)
  • Mounting: Top mount: 1" NPT, Bottom mount: 1.5" Straight thread (fits NPT or BSP)
  • Outputs: 5 + serial data
  • Operating Temperature: -40 to +158°F (-40 to +70°C)

Our WhitmanVIEW Sensor Software (DOWNLOAD) is included at no extra charge, runs on a windows PC and connects to sensors via a serial data port. Our Setup Kits provide everything needed to connect through a USB port, including power supply, sensor-PC interface and cables. WhitmanVIEW is not required but adds powerful configuration, test and management capability.

  • View sensor measurements graphically in several different ways
  • Over 60 user-adjustable parameters
  • Built-in data logging, graphing, exporting and statistics facilities
  • Save & retrieve setups for maintenance and sensor cloning
