The 1 meter height is divided into 3 reference levels of water at quarter half and three quarter depth of the tank taken in centimeters.
Water level indicator using ultrasonic sensor and arduino.
The circuit will do basically what the aforementioned one will do rather efficiently.
We have used the ultrasonic sensor module which sends the sound waves in the water tank and identifies the reflection of sound waves that is echo.
Arduino water level indicator and control using ultrasonic sensor hc sr04r.
Ultrasonic method is similar to radar.
Click here to see that post today we will make a simple diy mini project in which we will monitor the level of water in a tank using an arduino uno and an ultrasonic sensor sr04.
Hc sr04 ultrasonic sensor interfacing distance measuring using arduino in the program the distance values are adjusted for a water tank of 1 meter height.
The sound waves hit the water and are reflected back in the form of echo waves.
Instead of radar wave we are sending ultrasonic wave.
We made water level meter with arduino platform we used arduino mega2560 but any arduino will work.
An ultrasonic well above human hearing pulse is transmitted from the unit and distance to target is determined by measuring the time required for the echo return.
This project can be further enhanced to control the water level in.
The ultrasonic sensor we re using is the hcsr04 which is quite common and easy to find in electronic stores and also online link in the description.
The echo opening receives the echo waves.
Water level indicator using arduino wireless water level indicator using ultrasonic sensor arduino is an amazing and very useful project.
In the last post we learnt how to install an arduino ide on your windows pc.
This procedure is ideal for our needs because ultrasonic sensors are accessible and low priced.
Ultrasonic sensor has two openings one is trigger and the other is echo.
Arduino water level sensor.
These sound waves are passed through the tank from top to bottom.
Trigger makes high frequency sound waves.
This arduino water level indicator uses an ultrasonic sensor or ping sensor to determine the level of water in the tank.
The objective of this project is to notify the user the amount of water that is present in the overhead water tank.
Materials needed for this arduino water level indicator and control using ultrasonic sensor hc sr04r.
Working of automatic water level controller.
First of all we need to trigger the ultrasonic sensor module to transfer signals by using arduino and then wait to get echo.
The ultrasonic sensor we re using is the hcsr04 which is quite common and easy to find in electronic stores and also online.
The ultrasonic sensor is not waterproof though so we will need to keep it protected.
We connect the sensor to an arduino and as per the changing water level new signal readings would be sent letting us know the level.
The ping sensor measures distance using sonar.
