Ultrasonic Sensors

Manufacturer: Contrinex
Category: Ultrasonic Sensors

Contrinex ultrasonic sensors provide reliable, non-contact detection of solid, liquid, granular or powdered materials in air, tolerating precipitation, humidity, dust and fumes. Target materials may be colored, transparent, polished or matt; detection is practically independent of the target’s direction of travel. Diffuse-mode and reflex sensors emit bursts of high-frequency sound waves toward a target, measuring the time elapsed until an echo is received. They contain a transmitter and a receiver in a single housing. Ultrasonic sensors are compensated for temperature variation, but are unsuitable


Ultrasonic sensors can be used as contact-free devices in many areas of automation. They are employed wherever distances have to be measured in air, since they not only detect objects, but they can also indicate and evaluate the absolute distance between themselves and the target. Changing atmospheric conditions,(e.g. temperature variations) are compensated during evaluation of the measurement.
