Ultrasonic And Photoelectric Sensors

Feb. 23, 2006
The UHZ miniature ultrasonic line of sensors includes four models of rectangular through-beam units targeting applications with limited mounting space.

Measuring only 30 X 20 mm, these miniature sensors come in 18 to 30-Vdc input supply voltages with pnp or npn transistor outputs, in normally open or normally closed configurations. Maximum sensing distance is 300 mm with no dead zone at close range. All models include an LED indicator on the receiver and are IP67 rated with operating temperature range of 5 to 70°C.

The FARS Series is a standard 18-mm tubular diffuse sensor in a nonmetal package with background suppression technology. Sensing distance is from 30 to 130 mm and includes an adjustment potentiometer. An LED indicator on the FARS sensor pulses to indicate a weak detection signal, short circuit, or an internal sensor failure. All models come in a choice of 10 to 30-Vdc pnp or npn transistor outputs, in NO or NC. configurations, with either a 2-m cable or an M12 disconnect.

The MQ Series is a diffuse photoelectric sensor with a 90° optic package that mounts in space-limited locations. The unit fits a standard 18-mm mounting bracket or mounting hole and is available in a choice of 20 to 250-Vac outputs in NO or NC. configurations with an M12 disconnect. All MQ models include backgroundsuppression technology with maximum available sensing distances of 50 to 100 mm.

The HEE/HER Series consists of through-beam sensor pairs in a miniature 8-mm tubular stainless-steel package. Its small size and IP67-rated stainless-steel package target applications with limited mounting space in harsh environments. All models feature a maximum switching frequency of 10 kHz for high-speed counting or motion-control applications. Outputs include 10 to 30-Vdc pnp or npn transistor outputs in either NO or NC. configurations. Sensor connections are made via the embedded two-meter cable.
