Ultrasonic Sensors Feature Stainless Steel Design
Banner Engineering Corp. recnelty introduced U-GAGE® M25U Ultrasonic Sensors, opposed mode ultrasonic sensor pairs specifically designed for use in sanitary environments. The sensors, rated IP69K, IP67 (NEMA 6), are constructed of heavy-duty 316 stainless steel, allowing them to withstand the recurring high-pressure washdowns, severe temperatures, and aggressive cleaning chemicals common in food and beverage applications.
With a smooth barrel housing—free of threads, gaps or seams that could accumulate debris—M25U sensors allow for thorough cleanup with minimal effort. Additionally, IP68-rated washdown cordsets and FDA compliant brackets are available to further ensure reliable, long-lasting performance in the harshest environments.
"The M25U is the ideal solution for many challenging applications, such as clean-in-place procedures, that require reliable sensing in washdown environments," said Mark Lampert, Food and Beverage Business Development Manager at Banner. "It delivers all the advantages of conventional ultrasonic sensors—utilizing sound waves to detect the presence of targets—while providing the most durable, robust design on the market. The ultrasonic technology also allows the sensor to reliably detect clear objects."
M25U sensors can be wired for either normal or high speed. Normal speed offers a longer sensing range, while high speed provides a shorter response time, ideal for high-speed counting applications.
