Ultrasonic sensors for switching and measuring

February 6th, 2014, Published in Articles: EngineerIT


countapulse-214-02----Longer operating ranges and broader areas of application are two of the features offered by Leuze’s two new ultrasonic sensors. Suitable for switching and measuring applications, the new devices effectively expand the Leuze line of ultrasonic sensors. The Leuze HTU 418B and Leuze DMU 418B switching and measuring devices have an operating range of up to 1300 mm, while the Leuze DMU 430B measuring devices have an operating range of up to 3000 mm. These fully metal-enclosed ultrasonic sensors offer protection to Class IP 67. The series is available in cylindrical M18 as well as M30 metal housings, with much shorter design compared to the predecessor models. This means the sensors are easy to install in application locations with limited space using the lock nuts on the external threads. Both series were equipped with an improved teach function: two push buttons for defining two independent switching points simplify setup and increase flexibility when using the sensors. Device types with an IO-Link interface ensure the intelligent, simple and user-friendly connection and activation of the sensors.
