November 4, 2016 – To help engineers improve sensor operations in unique applications, Turck introduces six line extensions to its ultrasonic sensor offerings. These products expand the breadth of Turck’s solutions to build a more comprehensive ultrasonic sensor portfolio for its customers.
Ultrasonic sensors are ideal in applications with demanding requirements, such as long sensing ranges, non-metallic, irregularly shaped or transparent targets, wide sensing areas and when dust or oil films are present. Featuring advanced technology, Turck’s ultrasonic sensors address these challenges to deliver dependable object detection.
Turck’s new ultrasonic sensors are available in a variety of housing styles with multiple feature sets to solve difficult applications. Specific new releases include:
- M30 barrel sensors with 6-meter sensing range: These 30 mm barrels offer either a single digital output, dual digital outputs, or a digital output and analog output. The digital and analog output version offers IO-Link capabilities to make parameterization, diagnostics and replacement easier.
- CP40 and CK40 sensors with new housing: The rectangular packages of the CP40 and CK40 product families offer sensing ranges up to 2 meters with either a single digital output or a digital and analog output. Highly visible LEDs and sealed programming buttons simplify monitoring.
- ATEX/IECEx-approved sensors: With ATEX/IECEx, II 3 G approvals, these stainless steel barrel sensors are ideal for use in hazardous locations. Teach by wire, teach by button and teach via IO-Link capabilities are standard on these products.
Additional line extensions include compact sensors with NPN output, compact sensors for retro-reflective applications, and 18 mm barrel sensors with side-sensing transducer.
