Sensor technology: Innovation for a water-wise world

Home Engineering Electronic - Instrumentation & Control Sensor technology: Innovation for a water-wise world

IN alignment with the theme of this year’s World Water Week in August, “Innovative Ideas for a Water-Wise World,” Motion Tronic urged industries to adopt innovative solutions that foster efficient and responsible water management practices.

In the face of frequent water shortages and water crises in South Africa, water storage tanks have become essential components for domestic, industrial and agricultural needs nationwide.

“To maximise the efficacy of these tanks it is important to ensure that the water levels are properly monitored and maintained. Ultrasonic sensors are an excellent tool for controlling liquid levels in these tanks as they are incredibly precise and can measure liquid levels with an accuracy of up to 0.25%, allowing users to wisely plan their water usage accordingly,” explains Motion Tronic director, Bradley Douglas.

Ultrasonic sensors present a versatile innovation adaptable across a wide range of applications, from small Jojo tanks used for domestic water storage to large tanks used for agricultural purposes. With easy installation and configuration, as well as minimum maintenance needed, these sensors are a great option for reliable, hassle-free monitoring of tanks.

“We are the sole agent for Microsonic repairs and sales in South Africa and are proud to provide real-world applications, offering continuous water monitoring, giving our clients real-time readings for improved planning and control,” adds Douglas.

Sensor technology is ideally suited to a variety of industries, including water, water waste, paints, acids, inks, food and beverage, and those who monitor water levels in open channels and tanks.

“Embracing innovative technology in both our personal and business lives is a crucial step towards cultivating a more water-wise world,” concludes Douglas.
