The DPS5000 SDI-12 is the latest addition to the level sensor product family from Druck. It is based on the DPS5000 series which uses the high performance UNIK5000 pressure module, digital compensation over pressure and temperature and provides 0.1% accuracy performance, high stability and minimum power consumption.

It is aimed at system integrators who can take the product and easily put it in a level monitoring system by using the SDI-12 digital communication. Additional features of density corrections for liquid level and filtering make this an easy to use and sophisticated tool.

The DPS5000 SDI-12 is designed to be used in the water monitoring and management industry. SDI-12 is a system integrator protocol designed for remote low power applications.

Target industries: natural water monitoring, drinking water, and wastewater management.


Ranges from 350 mbar to 70 bar.
Total accuracy to ±0.1 % FS.
Stainless steel or Titanium construction.
Wide temparature range -40 °C to +80°C.
Low power.
Customer set filter setting.
Excellent long-term stability.
