Ultrasonic Sensors Suited For Packaging Food

Two new ultrasonic sensors have been designed with a tough housing, making them useful for many OEM and packaging applications, including food and beverage. Both the Virtu and Virtu18 sensors have a dual-mount option and sensing ranges from 50 mm to 510 mm. Virtu18 comes in an 18 mm barrel body style. A teach-in window capability eliminates downtime often required for sensor recalibration when colors, materials or shapes change. With UL enclosure ratings of NEMA 4X and IP67, these CE certified sensors are resistant to dust, 100% humidity, most acids and bases and high-pressure washdowns. The sensors are virtually impervious to the effects of splashing food, caustic cleaning solutions or changing light conditions. Shielding and filtering make the fully encapsulated sensor immune to radiated or conducted energy. Pricing is $89. HYDE PARK ELECTRONICS LLC, Dayton, OH. (937) 293-3300.
