Based on the latest in acoustic wave technology, ultrasonic sensors 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. Suitable for dusty, humid, or hazy environments, sensors offer multiple sensing ranges (up to 6 m, 19.7 ft). Available in a variety of tubular and block style housings, sensors have a IP65 or IP67 protection rating. With discrete, analog or combination output configuration options, the family of ultrasonic sensors works with many controllers and have programmable setpoints and operating modes.
