The UC4 ultrasonic sensor, the smallest offered by the co. for flexible installation, is designed for effective detection in challenging environments of optically difficult targets such as clear, shiny and dark materials. Applications include the detection of: hopper and tank fill-level (powders, ink and clear liquids); clear bottles and multicolored caps for bottling lines; wafers, solar panels, glass and PCBs for the semiconductor industry; and products and internal parts for woodworking and metal forming/fabricating machinery. The single PNP or NPN output can detect nearly any target within its 250-mm range.
