Gauger485 is a level sensor solution for applications interfacing external devices such as a radio modem, GPS receiver, multiple relay controller, WiFi converter, computing devices and many more. Gauger485 level sensors can also communicate with each other or with GaugerGSM for applications such as differential level measurement or adjacent multiple tank level measurements.
The use of serial character-based output is simple, reliable and more accurate than 4-20 analog interface. When viewed directly on a PC or laptop, no custom software is required. Data may be viewed by standard hyper-terminal applications.
- Continuous ultrasonic level meter for liquids and solids featuring digital RS485 input/output.
