Water level sensor

Water level sensor

Controlling the water level in photobioreactors is one of the core tasks for a PBR automation system. Algae Lab Systems has added two water level related sensors to its product list supporting the Algae Connect™ automated control and monitoring system. The first is a continuous measurement ultrasonic level sensor that feeds back water height in cm or inches.

The second is a level switch that turns on or off when the level reaches a threshold, and comes in 4 sizes. The sensors connect directly to the AlgaeConnect™ control system along with sensors for pH, temperature, DO, nitrate, density, light, and others, all of which can be integrated into Smart or Scheduled Control regimes.

For more information on these or any other Algae Lab Systems sensors, please email info@algaelabsytems.com
