A filling level measurement situation can arise with a liquid substance as well as with dry, bulky goods. The precise measurement of liquid levels is difficult to achieve, nevertheless, the confocal measuring technique is a suitable solution for this problem. Light is also reflected on the surface of liquids and thus provides a reliable result. Filling levels of dry bulk materials are easier to measure due to the surfaces. The ILR Time-of-Flight sensors are suitable for deep containers. Laser sensors from the optoNCDT group are available for shorter sections.
