ULTRASONIC SENSORS TACKLE TRICKY TASKS

02-12-2016

Turck has expanded its range of ultrasonic sensors, with extensions to six different product lines. Like the existing models, the new ultrasonic sensors are designed for use in demanding applications, such as those with long sensing ranges, nonmetallic, irregularly shaped or transparent targets, wide sensing areas and when dust or oil films are present.

The new and updated sensors include: a M30 barrel sensor with a sensing range up to 6m, an 18mm barrel sensor with a side-sensing transducer, a new housing option for CP40 and CK40 sensors, compact sensors for retro-reflective applications, IECEx-approved sensors for hazardous applications, and compact sensors with NPN outputs.

The full range of Turck ultrasonic sensors includes a variety of housing styles with multiple feature sets to solve difficult applications. The rectangular packages of the CP40 and CK40 product families offer sensing ranges up to 2m with either a single digital output or digital and analogue outputs. Barrel style sensors are available with either 18 or 30mm bodies with either a single digital output, dual digital outputs, or a digital output and an analogue output. The digital and analogue output version offers the advantage of IO-Link capabilities, simplifying parameterisation, diagnostics and replacement.

According to Rich Tallant, Sensors Product Manager for Turck: “These feature sets, along with extremely short blind zones and rugged housing designs, allow Turck sensors to work where others will not. Many of these sensors are designed with compact housings, and our new IECEx-approved sensors are ideal for use in hazardous locations. With these line extensions, customers have more reliable solutions for challenging sensor applications.”
