Ultrasonic sensors are available in different housing designs depending on the application. There are sensors with space-saving design (cylindrical or cubic), through to fork designs. This page provides a comprehensive overview of the designs of the ultrasonic sensors and explains their properties, which ensure the greatest possible flexibility in system planning.
Cylindrical ultrasonic sensors offer high stability and resistance due to the stainless steel housing. The different diameter sizes enable a wide selection of sonic cones and ranges to meet the requirements of different applications.
Cubic ultrasonic sensors are characterized by easy parameterization of the digital or analog outputs. Any settings can be made easily using teach-in or a display. The majority of the sensors also have an IO-Link interface.
Thanks to their functional principle, ultrasonic fork sensors are ideally suited for reliable, contactless label detection. The emitter and the receiver are arranged as a light barrier in a single housing and detect even the smallest change in ultrasound attenuation.
