New variant of ultrasonic sensor

Engineer Live News Desk

With a new model variant of the proven sensor series P47, PiL Sensoren GmbH underlines its flexibility in the development of customized special solutions. The high-precision ultrasonic sensors are predestined for basic applications such as distance and level measurements in the measuring range up to 5,000mm and ensure reliable detection of even small objects due to their sound intensity. For demanding industrial applications with limited installation space, PiL has now produced a special version of the sensor for distances from 50mm to 500mm at the request of a customer. Instead of the conventional plastic housing, this sensor variant is equipped with a robust M18 stainless steel housing as well as a 90° deflection angle and complete shielding.

The manufacturer offers the ultra sonic device optionally with fixed or customized characteristic curve. The stainless steel distance sensor features a fast response time of 60ms, temperature compensation and a synchronization function for up to ten sensors, which is realized by connecting the HLD/Sync inputs. With the reflector angle screwed on, a significant reduction in the blind zone can be achieved in addition to sound redirection. The new stainless steel version, EMC-shielded according to IEC 61326-2-1 and IEC 61326-2-3, complies with protection class IP65 and withstands operating temperatures from -20°C to +70°C. The sensor head must be protected from direct contact with hot water above 50°C or steam.
