Offers Virtu™ 30 Sensor


July 14, 2006 – Dayton, OH – The new Virtu™ 30 by Hyde Park is an ultrasonic sensor available in a 30 mm barrel body style that breaks new ground for the cost-conscious customer.

These compact sensors solve a greater number of applications with an increased sensing distance of 39” (1m) with the option of being normally open, normally closed or a teachable output.

Protection ratings of NEMA 4X and IP67 makes the Virtu™ 30 versatile in many harsh environments by resisting most acids and bases. These new sensors can be used in such applications as conveyor systems, food and beverage, pharmaceutical and automotive.

The Virtu™ 30 is teachable with an external, removable pushbutton. The pushbutton accessory provides convenience and prevents tampering once the sensor is installed.
