Pepperl+Fuchs UB60 Ultrasonic Height and Thickness Sensor

The new UB60-12GM-U-V1-Y204917 is designed specifically for applications requiring measurement of small objects on a conveyor or table. This sensor requires no external programming or teaching. With a reference distance of 50 or 60mm the sensor can measure a target up to 30mm tall. Applications such as box height detection, package thickness measurement and others can be solved with this sensor. The sensor works by measuring the time it takes to send and receive a burst of sound from the reference target (typically a conveyor). It automatically sets its voltage output to 0V for this reference target. Any target that …

Turck QL25 Cylinder Position Sensors

TURCK introduces the Q25L sensor, a magnetically actuated linear displacement sensor available with measuring ranges of 100, 125, 160 and 200 mm. The Q25L sensor is well-suited for applications that require precise signal transmission over long measuring distances, such as pneumatic pumps, slides, blanking or molding systems. By utilizing an external magnet as a position indicator, the sensor may be used in even more applications, such as moving platforms, point line measurement or other specially designed equipment where a cylinder is not present. Like TURCK’s other cylinder position sensors, the Q25L detects the position of a piston on standard pneumatic …
