CS SR50A-L Sonic Ranging Sensor
The SR50A is a rugged acoustic sensor for measuring the distance from the sensor to a target. It is typically used to measure snow or water depth, but it is well-suited for other uses.
Because the speed of sound in air varies with temperature, an independent temperature measurement is required to compensate the distance reading. A simple calculation is applied to initial readings for this purpose.
Note: This sensor may not be suitable for marine environments.
Benefits and Features:
• Wide operating temperature range
• User-selectable options for output
• Compatible with most Campbell Scientific dataloggers
