Distance-measuring ultrasonic sensors are real all-round talents

For glossy surfaces, transparent objects or in environments with a high degree of dust and humidity.

Ultrasonic distance measuring sensors provide information on an absolute position of a target or moving object. For glossy surfaces, transparent objects or in environments with a high degree of dust and humidity, ultrasonic technologies are often the only alternative to mechanical probing.

Applications for ultrasonic distance measuring sensors include level detection, stack height control as well as absolute position feedback.

      Stacking level control

      Ultrasonic sensors with analog outputs provide a distance proportional output signal highly independent of the target material encountered. The resolution is a uniform 0,3 mm even for the maximum scanning range of 2000 mm.

       

      Determination of roll diameter

      In winding and unwinding operations distance measuring ultrasonic sensors accurately measure the outer diameter of rolls containing materials such as plastic films, sheet metal, paper and cardboard, veneer etc.
