Wireless Sensor Monitors Tank Levels

Banner Engineering’s Sure Cross U-GAGE K50U Ultrasonic Sensor is used for wireless tank monitoring.

Banner Engineering’s Sure Cross U-GAGE K50U Ultrasonic Sensor is optimized for use with Banner’s Q45U Wireless Node to monitor levels in mobile or remotely located tanks and totes. The K50U detects distance from target to sensor in ranges from 300 mm (11.8 in) up to 3 m (118 in), and it features built-in temperature compensation for accurate measurements.

The sensor can function as a component within a larger, more complex network with Banner’s other wireless sensors and nodes. Outside of liquid or chemical tank level monitoring, the sensor can be used for 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.
