High performance in small package
18 September 2023
CLAIMED TO be the world’s shortest ultrasonic sensor, Baumer's new UR12 features a housing reduced down to a length of just 50mm, along with a 15mm ‘blind’ area.
The ultra-compact design of the M12 sensor, with the proven performance of the UR12 incorporating highly integrated sensor electronics, results in unmatched sensor performance, says Baumer. The sensors provide a fast response time of up to 16ms with a maximum detection range of 500mm and 1000mm for through beam sensors. This allows design engineers more freedom in space-saving machine designs.
As standard, the M12 sensor features IO-Link interface for easy integration and delivery of valuable secondary data, while advanced functions ensure optimum sensor settings, such as easy configuration of sonic cones using the FREE Baumer Sensor Suite.
For less demanding distance measurement applications, a retrofit product variant of the M12 is available without IO-Link. Thanks to compatible connections, the UR12 is a convenient ‘drop-in’ replacement for older M12 sensors.
The sensor is suitable for double sheet control in battery manufacture, or for level and leakage control of coolants in e-mobility charging stations.
