The K50U reliably detects distance from target to sensor in ranges between 300 mm (11.8 in.) up to 3 m (118 in.), and features built-in temperature compensation for accurate measurements. The sensor features a standard 1¼ in. NPT connection and can be combined with the optional BWA-BK-006 bracket and Q45U Wireless Node (sold separately) for an easy-to-mount, IEC IP67, NEMA 6P level monitoring solution.
The sensor is also an ideal solution for a range of applications beyond liquid or chemical tank level monitoring, such as pallet presence sensing or monitoring dry material level in a hopper. The K50U is available in two models, with a 1-wire serial interface or a model that functions as a Modbus slave via RS-485. Compatible with a wide range of wireless nodes, the K50U provides reliable sensing for a single sensor application or integrated as part of a multiple sensor, long distance multi-hop network.
