Position detection of waste containers and level measurement in underfloor containers

Ultrasonic sensors are a convenient solution for detecting waste container position when mounted on the gripping arm of a garbage truck or for determining the level of waste in underfloor containers. Thanks to intelligent measured value filters and temperature compensation, the UM18 enables reliable position detection and therefore precise positioning of the gripping arm when emptying containers. The contamination-resistant UC30 mounted in the underfloor container detects the critical filling level of the container in order to trigger an emptying request.
