Ultrasonic sensors Universal use for distance measurement and position detection

Ultrasonic sensors

Independent of color and surface finish

BUS ultrasonic sensors are perfect for distance measurement or position detection of granules, fluids and powders. They measure fill levels, heights and sag without making contact as well as count and monitor the presence of objects.

They are extremely versatile, operate independently of color and surface finish, and are not affected by transparent objects that generate strong reflections.

Ultrasonic sensors are precision all-rounders designed for critical situations. Dust, dirt and steam do not pose a problem.

Wide detection area – high precision
Their detection range extends from 20 mm to 8 m, meaning that even longer object distances can be handled without problem. Their high resolution and small blind zones ensure extreme precision. Ultrasonic sensors also provide excellent background suppression because their measuring principle is based on sound propagation times, not intensity. Integral synchronization means that the sensors do not interfere with one another.

Switching and analog variants
Our BUS ultrasonic sensors are different because of the output signal. Each series is available as a switching or analog version, whereby all analog versions can be supplied with an output voltage or current (0–10 V or 4–20 mA). The switching variants are suitable for all controllers.

Special feature: the BUS M30 includes variants with two switching outputs, one switching and one analog output or two switching outputs and one analog output so that the sensor can adopt the function of other sensors.

Easy to operate in different networks
Due to their operating voltage, BUS sensors are suitable for different voltage networks. Commissioning is quick and easy. Rectangular and angular heads allow for greater freedom of design.
