How to Choose an Ultrasonic Tank Level Sensor

These are important factors to consider when mounting your sensor in a tank. Avoidance of obstructions – The wall of the tank or other obstructions in the tank will give inaccurate readings. Placement can affect readings – Our filtering protocol allows the sensor to prioritize large targets over small targets and noise. This is beneficial…
