Ultrasonic sensors for fill level and feeder applications
Turck’s RUU/3GD ultrasonic sensors are designed for use in Ex zones 2 and 22. With ranges of 40, 130, 300 or 600 cm they are designed for fill level applications in tanks or feeder applications. Their rust-proof and acid resistant surface made from stainless steel is also resistant to aggressive media. The RUU/3GD sensors are provided with switching and analog output, as well as IO-Link interface. The user can choose between diffuse mode and opposed mode as well as between an N/C or N/O switching output via IO-Link or a teach button. The configurable operating modes, the short blind zones and the measuring ranges of the sensors are designed to help reduce the number of variants required in stock. There are five variants of the sensors in all: Two M18 devices with 40 or 130 cm ranges and three sensors in M30 housings with 130, 300 or 600 cm ranges. All sensors are already provided with Atex and IEC-Ex approvals.
