Ultrasonic Sensors Fit into Tight Spaces


Pepperl+Fuchs introduces F12 Series Ultrasonic Sensors.  These sensors offer simple push-button programmability, and feature user-selectable beam widths to provide reliable detection over a wide or narrow area.  They provide an 800mm sensing range with a very small 50mm deadband, and feature a rotatable M12 quick-disconnect for easy connectivity.  Indicator LEDs provide high-visibility status indication.  Push-pull, 4-20mA, 0-10V outputs are available.  

F12 series ultrasonic sensors have a rugged IP65 rated housing and footprint of just 41.5mm x 49mm x 15mm, ideal for operating in tight confines and sensing through narrow areas, even in harsh application environments.  As a result, they are well suited for use in any number of automation applications such as web loop control, detecting packages or parts on conveyors, detecting product inside a box, level control and clear bottle detection in the printing, packaging, material handling, food and beverage, machine tool and automotive industries, among others.

F12 series ultrasonic sensors also feature Pepperl+Fuchs’ exclusive 4-in-1TM output, which automatically detects the connected load and sinks or sources as needed.  The result is significantly simplified sensor selection and stocking, as well as reduced installation time and cost.
