Ultrasonic sensors

Ultrasonic technology housed in an industry-proven design

Your Benefits

  • Fast commissioning due to single-button teach-in
  • Full mechanical compatibility to photoelectric sensors increase application flexibility without machine modification
  • Standard proximity, window and reflection modes provide application flexibility, which increases reliability and productivity
  • Integrated temperature compensation ensures high measurement accuracy
  • Complementary switching outputs immediately signal broken wiring, reducing faulty production results


Ultrasonic technology housed in an industry-proven design

Ultrasonic technology provides reliable results where optical sensors reach their limits. The UC12 shares the same housing as common photoelectric sensors. In addition a single teach-in button enables easy setup. Dark or transparent objects are easily detected.

At a glance
  • Transparent foils, glass, liquids and bottles are detected, regardless of the material color and ambient light
  • Easy and quick teach-in with teach-in button
  • Insensitive to dirt, dust and fog
  • Two complementary digital outputs
    (Q, /Q)
  • Very good background suppression (BGS)
  • Three operating modes: Distance to Object (DtO), Window (Wnd) or Object between sensor and background (ObSB)
