SL300 Ultrasonic Snow Depth Sensor:
It is a compact and advanced technology designed to measure the depth of snow with accuracy and precision. This system contains a highly sensitive electrostatic transducer, which is supported by the necessary circuitry to provide a 0 to +5 or 0 to +2.5 VDC output. The zero and span adjustments can be independently adjusted over the entire operating range of detection, which ranges from 1.5 to 20 feet.
At the heart of the SL300 is a piezoelectric crystal that converts electrical pulses into sound energy. This energy travels in the form of waves at a constant speed and frequency through the medium (air). The sensor emits ultrasound waves in bursts and receives the echoes back at the transducer. The instrument then measures the time it takes for the bursts to travel down to the reflecting surface and return, which is proportional to the distance from the transducer to the surface.
To ensure accurate measurement even in extreme conditions, the SL300 contains a temperature sensor to compensate for changes in operating temperature. This temperature compensation ensures that the speed of sound, which varies with temperature, is accounted for and accurate level measurements are obtained.
The SL300 Ultrasonic Snow Depth Sensor is designed to work in challenging conditions, where accurate measurement of snow depth is essential. The unit is mounted facing down to the ground, and the sensor to ground height is determined before any snow falls. As snow accumulates, the sensor measures the rise and fall in surface height.
Felix Technology has overcome the limitations of accurate snow depth measurement with its SL300 Ultrasonic Snow Depth Sensor. Using Hi-Tec electronics and intelligent algorithms, the SL300 provides precise and reliable results, making it an essential tool for anyone who needs to measure snow depth with accuracy.
