Ultrasonic sensors for reliable detection, independent of color or transparency

If you cannot feel you must listen

Ultrasonic proximity sensor, through beam and retro-reflective sensors detect objects or fill levels independent of their color or transparency and are incredibly unaffected by soiling. They provide the greatest precision throughout the entire detection area. Different sonic cone profiles allow the sensor to be individually adjusted according to the object, environment and accessibility.

    Areas of application
    • Through beam sensors

      Due to their non-pulsed operation, through beam sensors, consisting of emitter and receiver, exhibit the fastest response time of all ultrasonic sensors. Applications include:

      • detection of objects following each other in quick succession
      • counting of objects made of materials which are difficult to detect (glass jars, PET bottles)
      • monitoring transparent materials like plastic and glass
      • film rupture control

       

      Retro-reflective sensors

      Retro-reflective sensors require a fixed reflector or reference target for operation.
      They are ideally suited to reliably detect:

      • odd shaped and non-aligned objects
      • sound deflecting targets
      • sound absorbing materials like cottonwool and foam rubber
