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.
