Ultrasonic Sensors Are Rough And Ready

(Baumer)

Baumer’s latest range of ultrasonic sensors are said to be both robust and flexible for distance measurement and object detection. They are available in two designs: the cubical U500 and cylindrical UR18 with both options characterized by a robust housing and hermetically sealed sensor elements.

 

The IP67 rated sensors employ PEEK foil, which protects the sensor element and is hermetically sealed by laser welding. The sensors also feature flexible and application-specific parameterization via various setting options such as sonic beam width or filter functions with IO-Link. They also provide measurement almost to the sensor surface with an extremely short blind range of 70 mm and with a range up to 1,000 mm.

In Conversation with Antonio Neri, President & CEO – Hewlett Packard Enterprise & Salil Parekh, CEO – Infosys

Hear the CEOs of Infosys & HPE discuss the current crisis and how it has accelerated the need for digital transformation for their clients. Connectivity at the Edge, right mix of hybrid cloud, ability to extract data faster than ever before… these are just some of the contributions that HPE and Infosys make to our clients’ digital transformation journey.

 

The sensors are Industry 4.0 and lloT ready with a standardized communication interface IO-Link combined with simple and fast commissioning. Adjustments of basic characteristics can be made directly on the sensor via qTeach or via a central control point via an IO-Link. The choice of cubical or cylindrical designs, various mounting options and identical dimensions, allows for maximum flexibility and freedom in plant planning.

 

Typical applications for U500 and UR18 ultrasonic sensors are numerous and varied. For example; detection of full or empty bottles in splash zones in food, brewing and beverage processing, detecting pallets with foil packaging and level detection and vibratory feeder monitoring in material feed.
