Synchronisable ultrasonic sensors

Side by side in a row

To allow them to be mounted in series in restricted spaces, some Balluff ultrasonic sensors are capable of synchronisation. This is beneficial because it means that adjacent sensors do not influence each other. This prevents incorrect switching behaviour.

Sensors are synchronised through the interconnection of their sync lines. Synchronised sensors start their transmit pulses at the same time. The slowest sensor determines the cycle time.
