Carlo Gavazzi announces UA18CSD, UA18ESD series of ultrasonic sensors
By Renée Francoeur
November 18, 2015 – Carlo Gavazzi has a new range of compact ultrasonic sensors, available in M18 housings constructed of thermoplastic (UA18CSD Series) and stainless steel (UA18ESD Series).
These new sensors provide long sensing distances up to 800mm, in spite of their compact thread length of merely 38.3mm, the company notes.
Both digital output and analogue output versions are available. Digital NPN or PNP versions can be either NO or NC, and support two different set points, providing a detection “window.” The analogue output versions include 4 20mA or 0 10VDC, with positive or negative slope. A “teach-by-wire” function provides a means to set up the sensor parameters. Standard connection options include either a 2-metre PVC cable or M12 connector.
All UA18CSD and UA18ESD sensors are IP67 rated, have cULus UL508 approval, and can be operated with 10 to 30VDC.
