Turck Compact Ultrasonic Sensors for Retro-Reflective Applications

Presence sensing is particularly difficult when a target absorbs sound or is an odd or irregular shape. Turck’s compact ultrasonic sensors for retro-reflective applications pair the sensor with a reflector to detect a target; so as objects pass between the sensor and reflection, the echo is broken. Like Turck’s other compact sensors, these four new models feature simple programming via teach by wire. Sensing ranges available are 40cm and 1m.Turck Compact Ultrasonic Sensors for Retro-Reflective ApplicationsTurck Technical Datasheets
