Florence, Ky. – Balluff’s new line of Ultrasonic sensors are designed for rugged, high-performance feedback in long sensing automated and process applications to detect the presence of targets or to measure the distance from selected objects.
Based on the latest in acoustic wave technology, the Ultrasonic sensors detect objects better than traditional sensor technologies like photoelectrics, especially in difficult applications because of their ability to see targets independent of color, transparency, surface texture or ambient conditions. They are reliable with a number of different target media including solids, powders, or liquids. In dusty, humid, or hazy environments, they are sometimes the only choice available.
The Ultrasonic sensors come in multiple sensing ranges from short to long (up to 6m or 19.7ft). Available in a variety of tubular and block style housings for ease of mounting, these sensors have a rugged industrial IP65 or IP67 protection rating. With analog or combination output configuration options, the Balluff Ultrasonic sensor family has been designed to work with many industry-standard controllers and can be a means to reduce the sensor count in your system. Balluff Ultrasonic sensors have programmable set-points and operating modes for enhanced flexibility in critical applications.
