elobau expands its product range with new ultrasonic sensors
26 March 2019
elobau has expanded its range with the introduction of five types of ultrasonic sensors, which cover a wide range of measuring and monitoring tasks.
Three of the five sensor types are IO-Link compatible and therefore Industry 4.0 ready. Also available is an ATEX-certified version, and a specially designed version for level measurement in mobile equipment.
Ultrasonic sensors cyclically emit high-frequency acoustic pulses. The sonic waves are reflected by the target object and converted to an electrical signal by a sonic transducer in the sensor. The use of sonics makes it possible to identify objects regardless of their material. Even objects made from reflective, matte and transparent surface materials are safely captured. The ultrasonic sensors from elobau can measure between 40 millimetres and eight metres. The switching distance can be set by the user and the switching state is visualised by LEDs on the sensor housing.
With 2 operating modes, 2 housing materials, 3 design and 6 outputs to choose from, there is a design available for every application.
"From object recognition through distance measurement to position detection of solid, liquid or powdery substances, our ultrasonic sensors reliably supply data reliably even in the presence of moisture, dust and extreme temperatures", explains Marc Ford of elobau.
