Turck announced its RU50 Eco Series OEM ultrasonic sensors designed with a plastic threaded barrel made from highly resistant liquid crystal polymer (LCP). These OEM ultrasonic sensors also have translucent end caps that allow the sensor switch state to be viewed easily from any angle.
They are available with a switch output as well as with an analog voltage or current output signal. M12 and cable outputs are available.
The retro-reflective model sensors are available for conveyor belt applications. These can be taught to switch at a fixed distance from a reference object and reliably detect all objects between the sensor and the reference point.
