Conductive probes make an excellent backup level sensing option in many applications, but are primarily used in municipal wastewater systems. Their functionality requires water to make contact with one of the points on the sensor to allow an electrical current to pass through and complete a circuit.
Pressure Transducers are incredible reliable sensors in pump station applications and are unaffected by many of the challenging conditions that impact other level sensors.
Radar level sensors do have a high cost, but they are extremely versatile and are suitable for many difficult operating conditions.
Today we’ll be covering ultrasonic transducers, a reliable level sensing method that uses acoustic signals to determine levels inside the wet well.
Level sensors are components that are included in nearly every pump station, and they are integral to the operation of the pumping system. There are many different level sensor technologies available, each with their own strengths, weaknesses, and ideal water conditions.
