Turck has introduced an ultrasonic sensor in a compact Q12-style housing that achieves a 40-cm sensing range with a small 2.5-cm blind zone.

The small profile allows mounting in narrow spaces, like those found in packaging applications. When compared to the company’s other ultrasonic sensors, the Q12-style offers a competitive price without sacrificing quality.

It is available with retro-reflective and diffuse operation modes, and PNP and frequency outputs. The Q12 ultrasonic sensor is IP 67-rated.
