    MIC+ ultrasonic sensors


    The mic+ sensor family embedded in its M30 housing design covers a measuring range from 30 mm to 8 m with its five detection ranges. Depending on the selected detection range, the internal resolution of the distance measuring is 0.025 or 0.18 mm. All sensors are equipped with an integrated temperature compensation.

    Multiplex operation ensures that each sensor can only receive echo signals from its own transmission pulse, which completely avoids any interference between the sensors (crosstalk).

    MIC ultrasonic sensors


    This very solid construction is fully made of metal from the M30 housing to the M12 circular connector. Since the sensors do not contain any operating elements or signal lamps, they are especially suited for application under extreme ambient conditions with high mechanical loads for housing and plug connector. The sensors are available in five detection ranges and cover a measuring range of 30mm up to 8m.

    VNP ultrasonic sensors


    With the vnp sensors, relative detect distances (or relative window boundaries for the analogue output) are set via TouchControl – as opposed to the mic+ sensors. Via pin 5 at the sensor plug (Com input), the current distance to the object can then be taught in at any time. For this purpose, pin 5 must be applied to +UB for 3 seconds. The respectively taught-in distance to the object is referred to as the "virtual zero".

    The absolute detect distances (or absolute window boundaries for the analogue output) are derived from the summation of the previously programmed relative detect distances (or relative window boundaries) and the taught-in virtual zero. If, for example, a relative detect distance of -50 mm was programmed for switched output D1 and a relative detect distance of +80 mm was programmed for switched output D2 via TouchControl and the absolute distance to the object is then taught in via pin 5 as the virtual zero with 600 mm, the detect points are as follows: D1: -50 mm + 600 mm = 550 mm D2: +80 mm + 600 mm = 680 mm

    PICO+ ultrasonic sensors


    PICO + is an analogue output that has it all! The future belongs to the IO-Link. We are convinced about that. But there is still a long life left for the ultrasonic sensor with analogue output. That is why we have extended the pico+ sensor family with 0–10 voltage outputs and a 4–20 mA current output. The analogue characteristic can be set with the proven microsonic teach-in procedure and the output characteristic changed from the rising characteristic to the falling one. Our link control software on extensive parameterization, of course, also supports the analogue pico+ sensors.

    IO-Link – the new standard The new IO-Link interface in the pico+  sensors provides us with the requirements to effect continuous communication through all system architecture levels up and into the sensor itself. In this way, both machinery and equipment can be run in a more productive manner. In the IO-Link mode the distances measured are cyclically transmitted to the master; the IO-Link mode can in future replace an analogue output.

    LPC ultrasonic sensors


    The sensors of the lpc sensor range have an extremely narrow beam spread with an operating range of 250 mm and a maximum range of 350 mm. The blind zone merely amounts to 30 mm. Via pin 5 at the circular connector, the lpc sensors are set (teach-in): If pin 5 is connected to +UB, the D1 switched output is set; if pin 5 is connected to -UB, the D2 switched output is set. With the sensor version with analogue and switched output, the analogue output is set with pin 5 connected to +UB and the switched output is set with pin 5 connected to -UB.

    LCS ultrasonic sensors


    The lcs sensors have a block-like plastic housing with four fixing holes. To ease installation, M4 threaded sockets are fitted diagonally in two of the fixing holes. Three LEDs indicate all operating statuses. The lateral transducer makes the lcs sensors ideal for confined situations. The LinkControl adapter and the LinkControl software for Windows© are used to program the detect distances and window limits. Further settings such as measurement attenuation, hystereses for switched outputs and many other parameters are also possible.

    CRM+ ultrasonic sensors


    Sensor membrane with resistant protective film Filling often entails some spatter getting onto the sensor membrane. This often hardens so that after a lengthy operating period soiling on the sensor membrane can only be mechanically removed. The risk here is of the sensor membrane also getting damaged. The new protective film of the crm+ sensors now makes it easy to remove caked-on soiling, such as hardened casting compound and cement spatter. The protective film is also highly resistant to corrosive media. The threaded sleeve is made of 1.4571 stainless steel. The following crm+ sensors with a resistant protective film are available at the moment: crm+35/D/TC/E crm+35/DD/TC/E crm+35/IU/TC/E crm+130/D/TC/E crm+130/DD/TC/E crm+130/IU/TC/E crm+340/D/TC/E crm+340/DD/TC/E crm+340/IU/TC/E crm+600/D/TC/E crm+600/DD/TC/E crm+600/IU/TC/E

    HPS+ ultrasonic sensors


    The new hps+ sensors are fitted out - as standard - with a teflon film The ultrasonic transducers of the new hps+ sensors are now fitted out - as standard - with a teflon film It is sealed with a FFKM O-ring against the housing made of 1.4571 stainless steel or PVDF. This ensures a high degree of resistance to aggressive media.

    The hps+ sensors can be used for filling level measurement in tanks up to a 6 bar positive pressure. Pressure-tight installation in a tank is undertaken by means of a 1" threaded flange or a 2" one in the case of hps+340.

    Chemical resistance and seal tightness was tested through being stored over cellulose thinner and 1,000,000 alternating pressure stresses. Cellulose thinner is extremely corrosive and has a high rate of penetration.

    WMS ultrasonic sensors


    The wms sensors require connection to a wms controller or the customer's own control and signal evaluation equipment. Connections to the controllers wms-4/4D and wms-4/4I are easy as the wms sensors are designed for this. Up to four wms sensors may be connected to one wms controller. If several ultrasonic sensors are arranged in a confined space or face to face, then a combination of wms sensors and a controller is the best choice. (More information on the wms controllers can be found on the following pages.) wms - the inexpensive alternative to a self-contained sensor when the sensor must be controlled by the customer's system. A microprocessor control is normally required for this. The "transmitter" signal input on the wms sensor emits the sound pulse. For this, an open-collector output on the customer side briefly earths the signal input.

    DBK+4 ultrasonic double sheet control


    The new dbk+4 has 3 control inputs by means of which 3 working range can be pre-selected. The standard working ranges covers the sheet material weight range from 20 g/m2 to 1,200 g/m2. Extremely thin materials such as bible printing paper with weight per unit areas of less than 20 g/m2 are scanned with the use of the "Thin" setting. The "Thick" setting is available for paperboard containers and finest corrugated card. Changes between the working ranges can be undertaken under on-going operations. A teach-in for the material to be scanned is not necessary. If the 3 control inputs stay unconnected, then the dbk+4 operates in the standard working range. As such, a very broad material spectrum can be scanned.

    The teach-in function is additionally available for materials which cannot be scanned with one of the 3 working ranges. A material teach-in is done by inserting a single sheet into the double sheet control. The C3 control input is then placed at high-level for at least 3 seconds. Materials with non-homogeneous elements should be moved during the teach-in to permit them to be detected by the dbk+4. Success with a teach-in operation is shown by a green LED. The material can now be scanned. The teach-in allows thin Washi up to wafers glued with a water film to be scanned.

    ESP-4 label / splice sensor


    Label and splice sensor in one appliance. With a rapid pulse sequence, an ultrasonic transmitter beams upwards against the backing material. The effect of the sound pulses inducing the backing material to vibrate is for a markedly weakened sonic wave to be emitted on the opposite side. The receiver receives this sonic wave and analyses it. The backing material signal level is different to that of the label or splice. And this difference in signal is analysed by the esp-4. The difference between backing material and label and/or between sheeting and splice can be very slight indeed. To ensure certainty with the difference, teach-in for the esp 4 sensor must firstly revolver around the signal level for the backing material/sheeting. The esp-4 sensors can be used as a label and splice sensor. The 3 teach-in methods permit the esp-4 sensor to be optimally set for each and every assignment.

    BKS ultrasonic edge sensors


    The bks ultrasonic edge sensor is a fork sensor for scanning the edges of sound-impermeable materials such as foil or paper. This is why the bks is ideally suited for the web control of highly transparent foils, light-sensitive materials, materials with greatly varying transparency and paper subject to high paper dust loads. The fork's lower leg is equipped with an ultrasonic sensor which cyclically emits short sound impulses, which are detected by the ultrasonic receiver arranged in the upper fork leg. Material immersing into the fork covers this sound path and thus attenuates the receive signal in dependence of the coverage, which is evaluated by the internal electronics. An analogue signal is output in dependence of the coverage degree.

    The LinkControl adapter LCA-2 is equipped with a USB interface for connection to a PC or laptop. With the LinkControl software, the ultrasonic sensors of the mic+-, mic-, vnp, Ics, Ipc, ucs, sks and hps series can be parameterised under Windows®.

    The LinkCopy function allows the download of parameters from the sensor to the LCA-2 and the subsequent upload of these parameters to a different sensor. This way, sensor settings can be conveniently copied from one sensor to the other.

    Via the integrated TeachBox, all ultrasonic sensors which are taught via pin 5 at the sensor plug (mic, Ics and Ipc series) can be comfortably set. The Link- Control adapter LCA-2 is looped in between the sensor connection line and the sensor; a PC or laptop is not required. During the teach-in process via buttons T1 and T2, the length of the button stroke is indicated in seconds on the display.
