Courtesy: SickSick's UD18-2 ultrasonic sensor is designed to check for double layers and splices and is able to determine whether one, two or no material layers are present between its sender and receiver. The UD18-2 can detect objects regardless of material, including paper, cardboard, shiny metal, and transparent plastic. The UD18-2 also features the capability to teach-in up to four sensitivity levels, and the sensor can switch between sensitivity levels during operation, which allows the sensor to tackle complex applications. The UD18-2 is designed for applications in the packaging, print and paper, electronics and solar, automotive, and metal and steel industries. In addition to the standard functionality, installers can also elect to use the optional Connect+ tool to unlock additional features within the UD18-2.
