Level Sensors

Being the major piezoceramic supplier in Taiwan, Unictron’s piezo transducers are the perfect solution for the generation of stable and reliable ultrasonic wave needed in ultrasonic level sensor applications. Our engineering teams have been working in piezo ceramic industry for more than 25 years. We have sound background in materials formulations and ceramic processing technologies as well as advanced characterization and manufacturing facilities for the development and mass production of piezoceramic elements. High sensitivity, high resolution and high reliability ultrasonic sensors with various dimensions are available to meet your demands.

Ultrasonic level sensors are widely used for non-contact level sensing of liquids and bulk solids. The sensor comprises piezoceramic transducer which can emit high frequency ultrasonic waves. The piezoceramic transducer is mounted above the liquid surface being measured. The distance of liquid surface from the sensor is determined by sending a short ultrasonic pulse and measuring the time it reflects back from the liquid surface.

Another way of determining the liquid level employs a metal tuning fork. The self-resonant frequency of the metal tuning fork, when excited by a piezoceramic transducer, is detected by the evaluation circuit. The resonant frequency varies when the surrounding medium changes and the liquid level can be determined.
