Senixview software – a fourth generation tool

- Advertisment -

SenixVIEW software, free with every ToughSonic PC configurable Senix Ultrasonic level and distance sensor, keeps improving and getting better.

With SenixVIEW, users gain complete control at the bench or in the field. Work safely, remote from equipment to adjust, verify and duplicate setups. Setups can use metric or English units. One sensor or a network group of sensors can be updated with one click. Using SenixVIEW, ToughSonic sensor flexibility allows one model to be applied in many applications.

For ease-of-use, SenixVIEW™ Setup Software features real-time graphics that include target data and symbols, meters, switch states, charts, graphs, statistics and logs, all in real-time. The setup is able to adjust over 60 functionally organised parameters. Users are able to calibrate and set measure rate, operating range, filters, time-outs and responses to unusual measurement conditions.  There is also a multi-sensor feature that can manage a sensor network by address. Group control allows users to adjust one sensor, a batch of sensors, or an entire network.

The large display shows outputs in big characters so users can view the PC screen measurements from a distance, while working on equipment, up to 30 metres away. It can also be resized to individual preference.  A strip chart shows a running measurement history graph of distance vs time in a one-shot or continuous mode. Time and distance scales are manually or automatically adjusted. Sensor filters can be adjusted, and results checked in real-time—both filtered and unfiltered data are shown simultaneously.

Performance can be evaluated using the analysing feature – statistics that display the minimum, maximum, average, standard deviation and maximum deviation, either continuously or over a selected number of samples.  The logging feature stores time-stamped measurements to a disk file at an adjustable rate, while showing a real-time strip chart. Files can be replayed on the strip chart or exported to Excel.

Store and recall are seamless by saving a sensor setup to the PC disc file. Should users need another identical sensor, it’s simple – just connect it, recall the file, then copy the setup to the sensor for an exact copy in three seconds—no calibration needed! Configurations can be also be exchanged by email. OEM and MRO maintenance operations find quick duplication particularly useful to reduce setup and down time.
