The intelligent ultrasonic allrounder with the flexible design
The UC40 is a compact ultrasonic sensor for medium distances that precisely detects the distance, presence or position of objects, regardless of material color and ambient light. That means it is also suitable for level monitoring and collision avoidance. Thanks to the convenient push-lock mounting concept and integrated analog and digital interfaces with IO-Link, the UC40 can be installed quickly and used anywhere. A rotatable sensor head facilitates alignment while IO-Link and teach-in buttons accelerate parameterization. The sonic cone can be adjusted variably to the requirements on site. Interference signals can be easily suppressed. This increases performance and ensures reliable object detection.

It doesn't get much easier than this: Thanks to the intuitive push-lock mounting concept, the UC40 is installed in no time at all. Proven factory settings that ensure proper operation in numerous standard applications, a fast teach-in of the sensor, and pre-defined sound beam setups are three key features that ensure problem-free integration in a plug and play manner. Thanks to its market-proven, compact housing design and rotatable sensor head, the UC40 is also ideal for tight installation situations.
Added convenience: Thanks to easy mounting and tried-and-tested factory settings, the compact UC40 can be very quickly integrated into a system.
Strong performance meets full flexibility
Every application has its unique requirements. It's great when a sensor can be tailored to these. The UC40 comes with three pre-defined sound cone settings that can be used to optimize its performance for the specific application. A configurable interference echo suppression is also included. It effectively removes unwanted ranges and ensures a stable signal. A selectable sensitivity hysteresis also stabilizes the signal for laterally approaching objects. Whether everything is working as expected can be checked on-site in a fraction of a second by means of the 4 status LEDs.
An ultrasonic sensor that adapts: Almost all mid-range applications from 65 mm to 5,000 mm can be unproblematically equipped with the UC40 – thanks to its diverse parameterization options and imperviousness to interference signals.
The all-rounder for distance measurement
From production to logistics – the UC40 makes reliable distance measurement possible in a wide range of applications. Being an all-rounder, it is used for position measuring, presence detection, level measurement, or the detection of solid, powdery and liquid media. Even demanding conditions do not impact its performance. The rugged housing design with enclosure rating IP65/67 makes the sensor impervious to dust, contamination and fog. The measurement quality also remains consistently high thanks to the powerful ultrasonic technology – regardless of material color, gloss, transparency and ambient light.
Reliable distance values regardless of wind and weather: Thanks to state-of-the-art ultrasonic technology, the UC40 delivers reliable data even in demanding conditions. The makes it an all-rounder and the sensor of choice when you need more than just a standard device.
