Carlo Gavazzi offers UA18CSD, UA18ESD ultrasonic sensors
December 15, 2015 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Dec. 15, 2015 – Carlo Gavazzi has introduced a new range of compact ultrasonic sensors, available in M18 housings constructed of thermoplastic (UA18CSD) and stainless steel (UA18ESD).
The new sensors promise to provide long sensing distances up to 800 mm, in spite of its thread length of 38.3 mm, says the company. Both digital output and analogue output versions are available. Digital NPN or PNP versions can be either NO or NC, and support two different set points, providing a detection “window.” The analogue output versions include 4 20mA or 0 10VDC, with positive or negative slope. A “teach-by-wire” function provides an easy means to set up the sensor parameters, according to Carlo Gavazzi. Standard connection options include either a 2-metre PVC cable or M12 connector. The UA18CSD and UA18ESD sensors are IP67 rated, have cULus UL508 approval, and can be operated with 10 to 30VDC.
