Teach-in: Easily explained

Video instructions for teach-in of our ultrasonic sensors

Our ultrasonic sensors can be supplied pre-set if desired. However, you can also choose to set the switching points yourself. During the so-called "Teach-in" procedure, the respective switch-on or switch-off points are determined. The process can be carried out in analog or digital way. In the case of digital execution, the hysteresis of the switching points can also be set. Our experts will be pleased to advise you on this.
