Liquid Level Measurement with Ultrasonic Sensors

Liquid-level sensors are integral to process control and inventory management in many industries. At Migatron, we engineer two types of level sensors, point-level sensors (our digital sensors) and continuous-level sensors (analog sensors). The type of sensor appropriate for your liquid level measurement depends on the application.

What type of tank sensor is right for your application?

Point-level sensors are used to detect a single liquid height at a predetermined level. These sensors are ideal to use as high or low alarms and can flag either overfill conditions, or at the low level, indicate liquid levels below a desired threshold.

Continuous level sensors provide level monitoring of an entire system. They measure liquid level in a range, rather than at a single point, outputting an analog signal that correlates to the liquid level inside your tank or vessel.

Common questions for level measurement applications:

  1. Are you measuring a liquid or bulk material?
  2. Is the location classified as a Hazardous Location or Explosive Atmosphere?
  3. Point level or continuous measurement?
  4. What level measurement range do you need?
  5. Will the material coat or buildup on surfaces?
  6. Does turbulence, foam, or vapor occur at the surface of the liquid?
  7. What kind of output will you need?
