Balluff’s family of ultrasonic sensors detect the presence of targets or measure the distance from selected objects when long sensing ranges and high accuracy are needed.
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.
