Reliably high-performance ultrasonic sensors with integrated setting and filter options
The new generation of the ultrasonic sensors U300, U500 and UR18 impresses with reliable integrated setting and filter options via the IO-Link interface in every situation. The choice of the preset sonic cone width (narrow, medium, wide) allows individual adjustment to the format. This means that different application options can be reliably handled by a single sensor, reducing variant diversity. Watch the video to find out more about the setting and filter options and how you can benefit from them. What is more, the unique combination of the shortest blind region on the market and extensive range offers new opportunities for machine construction and simplifies the design process.

Foil break control
Ultrasonic sensors enable reliable detection of foil breaks or small cracks in the material of transparent foils even in fast applications.
Detection in small openings
Ultrasonic sensors with a special sonic nozzle enable detection of objects and liquids in very small container openings, e.g. the filling of microtiter plates or test tubes.
Ultrasonic sensors detect objects regardless of their material, color or surface. Synchronization-or multiplex mode also enables reliable detection of large objects, gaps or even semi-transparent objects.
Object detection in demanding environments
Thanks to the rugged housing design and robust transducers, the ultrasonic sensors are also suitable for use in harsh conditions (e. e. washdown environment).
Ultrasonic sensors are based on the measured propagation time of the ultrasonic signal. They emit high-frequency sound waves which reflect on an object. The objects to be detected may be solid, liquid, granular or in powder form. Ultrasonic sensors reliably detect transparent and other demanding objects where optical technologies fail.
Transmitter and receiver are integrated in one housing. The sensor switches as soon as the sonic signal is reflected back by an object within the adjusted sensing range (background suppression principle).
Transmitter and receiver are integrated in the same housing. The sensor detects the sound reflected by a fixed reflector. The sensor switches as an object interrupts the distance between sensor and reflector.
Advantage: Independent of object attributes, reliable signal even with extremely weak or diffuse reflective or sound-absorbing objects
