New: Ultrasonic sensor series UFA2 - Miniature distance sensors and proximity switches
WayCon Positionsmesstechnik GmbH: As the successor of the UFA series, the ultrasonic sensors of the UFA2 series offer improved linearity (<0.4 % compared to <1 %) while maintaining the same measuring range of 20...200 mm. Unlike their predecessors, the UFA2 sensors can also be used in low temperature ranges down to -25 °C. The proven housing made of nickel-plated brass with M12 thread allows a fast installation and a protection class of IP67. The ultrasonic sensors are available as distance sensors with anlog output (0...10 V / 4...20 mA switchable) or proximity switches with switching output (NPN / PNP, NC / NO switchable).
The ultrasonic sensors are also available in the following two versions: With the Focusbeam version, the sound beam of the sensor becomes particularly narrow, allowing the sensor to measure in narrow tubes, such as bottle necks. In the chemical-resistant (CP) version, the sensor's membrane is coated with a thin PTFE foil and the front is protected with a PVDF cap. This makes the front part of the sensor insensitive to most chemicals.
In addition to these variants, the standard version can also be equipped with the radial beam accessories. This deflects the sound beam by 90° and eliminates the blind area.
Typical fields of application for the sensors are: bottling plants, presence monitoring, fill level measurement and distance monitoring.
WayCon Positionsmesstechnik GmbH has been developing and manufacturing precision sensors for position and distance measurement since 1999. As an innovative company with headquarters in Taufkirchen near Munich and a branch in Brühl near Cologne, we sell our products all over the world. Our goal is to provide our customers with the best possible measurement technique solution: from high-quality sensors from the standard range to customer-specific solutions, from prototype to series production – for the most varied applications in industry and research. The products made in Taufkirchen are subject to rigorous quality standards and every single one is delivered to our customers with a calibration certificate.
