Ultrasonic sensors can do non-impact, wear-free measuring with the highest accuracy.
Apart from the well-known precision of this technology, the main benefits of ultrasonic distance measuring sensors are:
· Insensitive against ambient contamination and vibrations.
· Detection of the smallest objects at long distances.
· Independent of material, surface and colour of the object to be measured.
· Wear-free operation.
· Easy handling.
Leuze' new USDS series is suited to cover a range from 50mm up to 10m. Within this range, USDS sensors can be configured using special software together with a programming terminal.
Up to 10 units of the USDS series can be installed in parallel operation right next to each other without any risk of mutual interference.
With their integrated temperature compensation, USDS sensors can achieve an absolute accuracy of 1.5% in the temperature range from -25 to + 70°C.
