Jan. 11, 2016 – The PIL P53 Steel Head ultrasonic sensor is suitable for use in food processing and other industrial applications.
Its fully encapsulated stainless steel housing with gapless transitions boasts IP68/IP69K protection, promising to be impervious to water vapour, moisture and dust. According to PIL, the steel head sensors can withstand high pressure and steam jet cleaning. It provides a standard analogue 0-10V / 4-20mA output and two switching outputs. In addition to these fixed settings, the P53 series can be programmed for various other custom settings. Ultrasonic sensors use an ultrasonic transducer to send and receive sound waves. Specially coded ultrasonic signals are transmitted in a set pattern. After being reflected from the object to be measured, the signals are received by the sensor and decoded. The recorded time of flight is temperature compensated and converted to distance data.
