Ultrasonic Sensors Provide Sensing Range up to 6 Meters
The new Series 70 ultrasonic sensor family from Baumer includes new features to solve demanding applications in the food and beverage, logistics, packaging and printing and graphics markets. The sensors include a 6-meter detection range, ultra-slim sonic cone more than 50 percent smaller than industry standards and integrated temperature compensation allowing -25° to +60°C fluctuations.
The Series 70 family adds on four product options: two distance-measuring sensors (UNAM 70) with either voltage or current output and two dual digital output proximity sensors (UZAM 70) with two either NPN or PNP switching outputs, which can be set to detect targets at two different distances with either normally-open or normally-closed outputs.
The Series 70 family provides solutions for applications that are often difficult to solve, such as fill-level monitoring for liquids or bulk material either outdoors or in silos, paper roll diameter as well as stack height and position measurement and reservoir level monitoring for pump control applications. Insusceptible to color variations, the sensors reliably detect even glossy or highly transparent objects.
Extremely resistant to dust, dirt and contaminants, the sensors provide continuous resolution and repeatability throughout the entire detection range. Integrated temperature compensation ensures utmost precision even in measurements at fluctuating temperatures such as occur from the start of a production day to the afternoon, when operating temperatures can soar.
