The Microsonic range of edge guide, ultrasonic and distance sensors robust design makes them an exceptional choice in many industrial automation applications.

We have a specialised range of ultrasonic water level sensors that are geared to simplify the way you monitor water levels – without interruption and geared to serve industries such as water and water waste, paints, acids, inks, food and beverage, and those who monitor water levels in open channels and tanks.

We only supply Microsonic sensors. We know them to be superior as Microsonic is a specialist in sensor technology for industrial automation.


The Microsonic range of sensors is extensive, you are bound to find exactly what you are looking for. With Microsonic’s Sensor Wizard, you can filter and compare the various sensor models on offer.

What is ultrasonic sensor technology?

Great for measuring distance and levels, ultrasonic sensors use soundwaves to detect objects.

A transducer sends and receives high-frequency sound waves to detect proximity, without having contact with the objects being detected. The sound (which cannot be heard by the human ear) is projected by the sensor and travels toward the object. The reflected sound is input, through a microphone, and analysed to determine an accurate distance or level.


  • Robust, fast & accurate (5 detection ranges).
  • Accurately detects a variety of materials (unaffected by dust, translucency or colour).
  • Choose from a variety of designs.
  • Automatic synchronisation & simultaneous use for multiplex operations (up to 10 sensors).
  • Contact-free web edge scanning of sound impermeable materials.

Simplified Sensor Integration with Smart Sensor Profile

  • Thanks to the IO-Link interface, the lpc+ sensors can be easily and reliably parameterized by the machine controller even during operation.
  • There’s no longer any need for routine on-site adjustment, but should the need arise, it can be done through LinkControl.
  • In addition to process values, the IO-Link sensors also transmit identification, status, and diagnostic values and support the Smart Sensor Profile.
  • The advantages of the Smart Sensor Profile pay off when using different IO-Link devices (sensors, actuators) in one application. In the IODD file, the Smart Sensor Profile unifies manufacturer-independent functions, simplifies handling and thus reduces integration effort.

Product information: lpc+ Ultrasonic Sensors with Smart Sensor Profile

Microsonic packs two output stages into an M18 threaded sleeve. That means you can choose to go with the version that offers two push-pull switching outputs or the version with one push-pull switching output and one analogue output 0-10 V or 4-20 mA with IO-Link interface.

Microsonic has equipped its new lpc+ sensor family with two output stages, as of April 2019. The sensors in the M18 threaded sleeve offer these all-new optional features:

-Two push-pull switching outputs with IO-Link interface
– One push-pull switching output and one analogue output 0-10 V or 4-20 mA with IO-Link interface and four detection ranges (150 mm, 250 mm, 350 mm and 1,000 mm).

The new ultrasonic sensors cover a measuring range from 20 mm to 1.3 m.

The Advantages

Microsonic ultrasonic sensors have the upper hand in real-world applications, they come with a variety of advantages over other forms of water level testing.

Primarily, there are no moving parts, reducing the risk of breakage. They also offer continuous water monitoring, giving you real-time readings for improved planning and control.

Installing this product is straightforward and requires only a once-off element, and the ongoing running of the device is simplistic and easy to understand.
