Ultrasonic Sensors

January 17, 2007

Baumer Electric has expanded its existing family of Series 20 Miniature Ultrasonic Sensors to include seven  sensors capable of long range measurement up to 1000 mm. When mounted up to one meter from the target, the compact sensors will deliver highly precise non-contact proximity, position and distance sensing on sound reflective clear, glossy and opaque materials regardless of color.  The sensors can be used for edge detection, liquid measurement and sensing foil materials.

The sensors feature an integrated teach-in button that allow the user to customize settings, and a lock out feature that prevents unwanted output programming changes. A four-pin M8x1plug connector provides easy wiring options. With an IP 67 rated polyester housing measuring 20x42x15 mm, these compact sensors are ideal for space restricted applications. All seven sensors are available with discrete (on/off) or analog outputs.  These self-contained units offer high repeatability and high detection speeds.

The 1000 mm Series 20 Ultrasonic Sensors can be used in a range of industrial processing, automated manufacturing, and original equipment applications. The sensors can be designed into heavy equipment, printing machines and robotic components. They can also be used as monitoring devices on automated food/beverage, pharmaceutical, chemical processing, metalworking, textile and packaging production lines.
