Baumer, Southington, Conn., released the Series 70 ultrasonic sensor for food and beverage, logistics, packaging and printing and graphics markets. With ultra-slim sonic cone only more than 50% smaller than industry standards and integrated temperature compensation allowing -25° to +60°C fluctuations, these ultrasonic sensors provide precise and reliable results even under the most adverse conditions.
The Series 70 family provides solutions for applications such as fill-level monitoring for liquids or bulk material either outdoors or in silos, paper roll diameter as well as stack height and position measurement and reservoir level monitoring for pump control applications. Insusceptible to color variations, the sensors reliably detect even glossy or highly transparent objects. Extremely resistant to dust, dirt and contaminants, the sensors provide continuous resolution and repeatability throughout the entire detection range.
Another sensor hallmark is the extremely slender sonic cone. Focused sonic energy guarantees an extraordinarily high signal quality even under harsh ambient conditions. The nickel-plated brass housing with IP67 protection ensures excellence even under demanding conditions. The 6-meter sensing distance enables an application-specific sensor adaptation, even varying across applications in a single plant. And, the pushbutton teach procedure gives the user the ability to set the analog output .
