In industrial applications, ultrasonic sensors are characterized by their reliability and outstanding versatility. Ultrasonic sensors can be used to solve even the most complex tasks involving object detection or level measurement with millimetre precision, because their measuring method works reliably under almost all conditions.
No other measuring method can be successfully put to use on such a wide scale and in so many different applications. The devices are extremely robust, making them suitable for even the toughest conditions. The sensor surface cleans itself through vibration, and that is not the only reason why the sensor is insensitive to dirt. The physical principle—the propagation of sound—works, with a few exceptions, in practically any environment.
The measuring method employed by ultrasonic sensors has been viewed as an excessively complex technology, and only used as a “last resort” ... as a solution for particularly difficult applications. Those times have long since passed!
Ultrasonic sensors have proven their reliability and endurance in virtually all industrial sectors.
