Robust ultrasonic sensors

Reflective barriers, proximity and distance measuring sensors for use in harsh ambient conditions

Our robust UNAR series ultrasound sensors are suitable for the detection of aggressive media in difficult or sensitive environments. They measure acid and lye levels or detect objects accurately in the vicinity of solvents. They do all of this completely reliably thanks to their special design.

Product highlights

  • High chemical resistance thanks to Parylene coating
  • Robust housing of V4A stainless steel
  • FDA-compliant materials
  • Smart teach function
  • Portfolio
    • Reflective barriers

      Operating principle
      Similar to a light barrier, however no special reflector is required. An arbitrary machine part is used to reflect the sound.

      Application
      with sound-absorbing objects such as foam and with objects with very irregular surfaces.

      Distance measuring sensors

      Operating principle
      Based on the pulse echo technique, the measured distance value is output as a voltage or current value. The output calibration curve can be output as a decreasing or increasing curve via teach-in.

      Application
      For level measurement and object distance measurement or determination of roller diameters and stacking heights.

    • Proximity sensor

      Operating principle
      Similar to a diffuse sensor with background suppression, the presence of an object is detected by means of acoustic reflection on the object surface. The sensing distance is programmed via teach-in.

      Application
      Object detection on conveyor belts or presence detection
