Ultrasonic sensors are easy to use and reliable for distance measurement, object detection, and liquid level measurement. Since they work with soundwaves, they can be used in non-contact environments and for a number of different applications that would otherwise be too difficult or dangerous to access.
Much like radar, the sensors measure how long it takes for sound to be reflected back to gain an accurate measure of the proximity of a set item.
From harsh environments to sensitive ones, these sensors put in the work necessary for accurate functionality.
A recent report published by Transparency Market Research found that the global ultrasonic sensors market will grow at a CAGR of 17.1 percent from 2015 to 2023 and reach $1,670.7 million by 2023.
The report further uncovered that this growth is being driven by an increased desire for efficiencies in both production and operations. From manufacturing facilities to hospitals and vehicle technologies, there are a number of industries adding sensors.
Liquid Level Sensing
In terms of fluid level measurement specifically, these sensors are great for measuring the depth or level of liquid within a tank. Common applications include irrigation control, well and pump controls, level warning systems and more.
These sensors are also beneficial in applications that require continuous level monitoring as they are able to sense and display level measurements in real-time.
