Pepperl+Fuchs’ UCC*-50GK can be used in both indoor and outdoor applications.
Pepperl+Fuchs introduced the UCC*-50GK series ultrasonic sensor, which uses ultrasonic pulses to measure the distance to the target and reports information through one of three sensor outputs. The sensor doesn’t require a PLC and is incorporated into an existing project via UART, LIN-Bus or PWM. It is also equipped with a power save mode and features pre-stored sound profiles a choice of beam widths. The sensor also has three beam patterns and a sensing range of up to 4m. With an IP66/67 rating, the sensor has a PTFE protective film, operates in a temperature range of -25°C to +70°C and features integrated temperature compensation.
