Forklifts and Ultrasonic Level Sensors

By sending sound waves off of targets to return to a home transmitter, ultrasonic level sensors can be a valuable asset to companies that deal in storage or when materials are moved around several times a day. The term “ultrasonic” uses sound waves that operate at a frequency beyond human hearing and is applied in ultrasonic level sensors by sending sound waves that echo off the desired target and are returned to the transmitter. When applied to storage companies and the like, the most pragmatic uses for ultrasonic level sensors are level, volume, flow monitoring, presence or absence detection, and object dimensioning.
