Variable ultrasonic sensors

08 July 2014

The new RU-U ultrasonic sensor series, available in the UK from Turck Banner, are said to allow large sensing ranges to be covered with fewer sensor variants. 

Available in M18 and M30 housing styles, the range reduces the range of variants required for stock-keeping. This is made possible by the particularly short blind zones of the sensors, which offer large sensing ranges at the same time, for example with a 40cm range the blind zone is only 2.5cm. 

In order to offer the right sensor for every application with only a few sensor variants, Turck Banner has increased the versatility of the individual models. The simple compact version of the RU40 and RU100 modules, for example, enable the user to set diffuse mode and opposed mode operation as well as NC and NO switching outputs with a teach adapter. 

The standard sensor versions also enable the setting of switch windows and two separate switching points, either by a teach adapter or via a teach button directly on the sensor. 
The high-end versions can be operated as a switch or as an analogue sensor. Different operating modes, temperature compensation or the output function can also be set via IO-Link. If several sensors are installed next to each other, the customer can set the sensor parameters in synchronisation or multiplex mode, in order to prevent mutual interference of the sensors.
