Operating principle of ultrasonic sensors
Ultrasonic sensors are all-rounders in the category of position sensors since they detect objects by means of ultrasound, sound waves with a frequency greater than the upper limit of the human hearing range. Ultrasonic waves reflect off the detected object for position detection, with a wave travel time proportional to the distance. Ultrasonic sensors can continuously and reliably detect a variety of objects and measure substance levels, regardless of most material properties and ambient conditions.
There are numerous applications for ultrasonic sensors, such as:
- Positioning and detection of products
- Presence detection of objects and people
- Distance measurement
- Loop control
- Level monitoring
