PulStar® Series Sensors

MassaSonic PulStar Series Ultrasonic Sensors are ruggedly designed transmitting modules that provide reliable continuous level or distance measurement of fluids, pastes, or solid bulk materials.  These sensors accurately operate at application ranges from 4 inches (100 mm) to 20 feet (6 m).


Incorporating state-of-the-art ultrasonic technology and processing algorithms, all PulStar models provide precision non-contact distance measurement for applications such as factory automation, process control, tank level monitoring, or object detection applications.   False echoes due to structure interference are not a problem because of advanced processing algorithms. The PulStar and PulStar Plus are the next generation improvements to Massa’s Legacy M-300 and M-320 product lines, and are completely backward compatible with existing M-300/M-320 installations and software. The NEW PulStar TTL Sensors are designed for easy electronic and mechanical interface to the control system of an OEM system integrator.  These rugged Sensors are RoHS compliant, IP68 rated, and available in three versions.  Contact a Massa Applications Specialist to discuss your specific sensing needs.

PulStar (standard)
The lower cost standard models in the PulStar Series are accurate, rugged, and particularly ideal if false echoes from sound reflecting structures between the sensor and the surface being measured are not encountered and extended detection ranges not required.
PulStar Plus
PulStar Plus Sensor additional features include: drop down menus to auto adjust detection settings to ignore false echoes caused by stationary objects in the sound path (mounting tubes), and contain a High Power Setting for extended detection range.
PulStar TTL
PulStar TTL Sensors easily interface into an OEM system integrator’s control system.  Powered by 5V DC, they communicate using asynchronous UART TTL 1.8V signals and have the detection setting features of a PulStar Plus to ignore false echoes.
