There are numerous
applications for Senix® Ultrasonic Sensors. Our products are used in all industries measuring the
distance to or size of material objects. That covers a lot of territory, and almost any
size and type of object can be measured. Think of our sensors as a non-contacting
Here are some typical markets where the sensors are used:
Whether retrofitting existing machines and building new ones,
sensors are used for motion control, or
level control, or dimensioning or
proximity sensing. These are
common applications in the Converting, Pulp and Paper, Printing, Rubber, Metals, Textile
and other manufacturing industries.
AUTOMATION: Senix® sensors reduce automation costs by providing a simple and
effective means of monitoring the size or
position/proximity of objects in
production processes. Sensor information is used to accept/reject objects based on size,
position or fill level, make decisions on the routing of packages based on size or
position, control the flow of liquid,
solid or granular materials, indicate when an object is nearby or in position, in/out
of tolerance, or provide alarms when objects are in/out of position, near full/empty, or
indicate process completion.
PROCESS CONTROLS: Common applications include measuring the
level of bulk materials in a tank or bin
(inventory), or controlling the amount of material dispersed from a vessel (batching).
Tank levels can be locally displayed, or reported to a remote computer by a data network.
Alarms can warn of low level, order levels, high level or other conditions.
INFORMATION & ENTERTAINMENT: People can be detected
their distance monitored to cause an appropriate response. Object or human positions can be monitored while
can be measured for monitoring or control. Water or wastewater flows in open channels can
be displayed, monitored or reported.
