Turck Australia has introduced six line extensions to its ultrasonic
sensor solutions, helping build a more comprehensive portfolio for its
Ultrasonic sensors are recommended for applications with demanding
requirements, such as long sensing ranges, non-metallic, irregularly shaped or
transparent targets, wide sensing areas, and presence of dust or oil films. The
advanced technology in Turck’s ultrasonic sensors addresses these challenges to
deliver dependable object detection.
Turck’s new and updated ultrasonic sensor products include M30 barrel
sensors with 6-metre sensing range; 18mm barrel sensors with side-sensing
transducer; CP40 and CK40 sensors with new housings; compact sensors for
retro-reflective applications; IECEx-approved sensors for hazardous
applications; and compact sensors with NPN output.
Key features of Turck’s new ultrasonic sensors include various housing
styles with multi¬≠ple feature sets to solve difficult applications; rectangular
packages of CP40 and CK40 product families offering sensing ranges up to 2 metres
with a single digital output or a digital and analogue output; barrel style
family offering 18mm and 30mm barrels with a single digital output, dual
digital outputs, or a digital output and an analogue output; and an digital and
analogue output version offering IO-Link capabilities, simplifying parameterisation,
diagnostics, and replacement.
Rich Tallant, sensors product manager for Turck says the sensors’ feature
sets, along with extremely short blind zones and rugged housing designs, enable
them to work where others will not. By offering sensors with compact housings as
well as IECEx-approved sensors with the ability to perform in hazardous
locations, the new line extensions provide customers with more reliable solutions
for challenging sensing applications.
