Ultrasonic sensors

The accurate all-rounder

Ultrasound sensors

Whether your application is position detection, distance measurement, or the detection of solid, powder, or liquid media: BUS ultrasonic sensors are precise all-rounders.

They measure fill levels, heights and sag without making contact as well as count and monitor the presence of objects. Regardless of the colour, transparency, and surface texture, they always perform really well. Fog, dust and impurities are also not a problem for them.

With the BFD ultrasonic position sensor with media contact, we are expanding our portfolio to add an innovative way to directly monitor hydraulic short-stroke cylinders. This reliable and economical solution for workpiece clamping monitoring is a real milestone in the field of metalworking.

To the application

Ultrasonic sensors with analog output or digital output

  • Position detection or object detection in solid, powdery and liquid media
  • Non-contact monitoring of the presence and counting of objects
  • Independent of color and surface finish
  • Extreme precision thanks to high resolution and small blind zones
  • Digital or analog outputs

Pressure-rated ultrasonic sensors

  • Position or object detection in solid, powdery, and liquid media
  • Check for presence/absence of and count objects without making contact
  • Regardless of color and surface finish
  • Extreme precision thanks to high resolution and small blind zones
  • Resistant to high-pressures

Ultrasonic sensors for short stroke hydraulic cylinders

  • Direct monitoring and continuous position measurement of hydraulic short stroke cylinders
  • Space-saving integration due to small size
  • Condition monitoring thanks to IO-Link: Reliable information on voltage status, pressure fluctuations, signal quality, device temperature
  • Plug & Play: full flexibility and universal integration through the multifunctional interface

Their detection range is between 25 mm and 6 m, so larger object gaps are no problem. Their high resolution and small blind zones ensure top precision.

Ultrasound sensors from Balluff differ in their output signals. By means of a switching version and an analogue version, they are able to both reliably detect and count objects as well as determine distances with extreme precision. This guarantees a wide range of applications.

A further benefit: Our ultrasonic sensors have different output functions and can be used as NC or NO sensors.

The most important benefits

  • Contactless detection
  • Reliable in critical environmental conditions such as fog, dust and impurities
  • Irrespective of color, transparency, reflection properties and surface finish on the object
  • Precise recognition of even smaller objects
  • Rectangular and cylindrical heads allow for greater freedom of design
