The UC4 ultrasonic sensor can be used to detect clear, shiny and dark materials. Applications include hopper and tank fill level detection; bottling line presence detection of clear bottles and multicolored caps; detection of wafers, solar panels, glass and PCBs in the semiconductor industry; and product detection for woodworking and metal forming/fabricating machinery, as well as detection of internal machine part position. The sensor has push-button setup and a compact design, capable of detecting virtually any target within its 250-millimeter range. The sensor can be set up in three detection and output modes: background suppression (BGS), window and reflection mode.
