you can select sensors by type in PRTG. Therefore log in to the web interface and from the blue navigation bar, choose Sensors -> By Type and then choose your sensor type. You will get a list of all sensors from this type and you now can delete them. For details please also refer to this article.
Best regards

You can also search for the sensor type by name in the search box. Helpful if you have multiple "local area connection - blah blah" settings.
