Ultrasonic sensors always emit their sound waves “straight forwards” by nature. However, the spatial conditions and installation location make it difficult to directly align the sensor housing with the object being monitored in many applications. Redirecting the sound waves using suitable angled reflectors is a practical solution for this problem.
No other sensor technology has such a versatile range of applications as ultrasonic technology: In the industrial sector alone, its applications range from recording filling levels and volume flows and measuring distances, heights, and widths through to detecting objects and obstacles in dynamic processes.
PiL Sensoren GmbH – pioneer of ultrasound technology – has developed the P49 model series for a fast startup. The manufacturer individually parameterizes these sensors to meet customer requirements. This saves users the time they usually need for setting up ultrasonic sensors on site for an application.
PiL offers a range of mounting solutions for making ultrasound measurements in closed containers to reliably and precisely detect the contents or filling level even in challenging applications. Depending on the medium, ultrasonic sensors with metric thread can simply be screwed into the housing wall.
On 18 September in Bielefeld, the future of the well-known red cult mobile could be marvelled at. At the 11th Bobby Car Solar Cup, a total of 25 student teams from schools in the region of Ostwestfalen-Lippe entered the race with modified solar-powered Bobby Cars. The "Lippe Racer" team, whose main sponsors include Inelta and PIL, also took part in the race.
PIL is now offering the hygienic, EHEDG-certified ultrasonic sensor P53 for tight installation conditions in a more compact variant in D 18-design; the length including the also EHEDG-conform cable bolting is only about 60 mm.
Honeywell announces that the ultrasonic sensors of the series 941-(xxx) bis 948-(xxx) are cancelled. For those producers, distributors and users, who sold these sensor-series, built them into their products or used them in their applications so far are not going to be any problems in obtaining and replacement: They ...
Ottobrunn - With the ultrasonic sensor series P47 PIL is offering highly precise distance sensors for basis applications in a measuring range up to 5 meters. Due to the sound intensity, the sensors available in a great variety have a reliable detection also for small objects. The typical application areas include amongst others distance- and filling level measurements, the diameter registration, attendance check and tape tension regulation.
Ottobrunn - With the P48 series PIL is offering very cheap and robust ultrasonic barriers for distances from 30 cm and 110 cm, which reach high a switching frequency up to 500 Hz. Ultrasonic barriers on transportation tapes guarantee the reliable detection and counting of objects, where steam, dust or smoke limit the view. Even difficult material- or surface characteristics such as transparent packagings, which would lead to irritations in optic measuring systems, are not a problem for those machines.
Erlensee – After the hygienic P53-ultrasonic sensors of the PIL Sensoren GmbH, the specifically for these sensors developed, hygienic montage holding was certified following the EHEDG guidelines. The holding, consisting out of two bolted half shells has a passage each for one of the sensors and is fix and safe in wall borings or housing passages.
Ottobrunn – The H + K Inc. is a new partner of the Pil Sensoren GmbH for the USA, who is taking over the direct sales of the highly precise ultrasonic sensors on the american market. To strengthen the position on the market, the distance sensors from PIL are now also available there with their own brand and original description.
Dr. Jochen Heimann, manager of the Inelta/PIL-Group explains that the strategic orientation of both companies turned the balance for the cooperation: "PIL as well as H + K do not only rely on high quality standard products."
