Operating principle of ultrasonic sensors
Ultrasonic sensors are all-rounders in the category of position sensors since they detect objects by means of ultrasound. Ultrasound is the sound with a frequency greater than the upper limit of the human hearing range. Ultrasonic waves that are reflected by the object to be detected are used for position detection. The travel time of the ultrasonic pulses is proportional to the distance. Irrespective of many object properties ultrasonic sensors can continuously and reliably detect powerful objects and measure levels.
There are numerous applications for ultrasonic sensors such as:
- Positioning and detection of products
- Presence detection of objects and people
- Distance measurement
- Loop control
- Level monitoring
