Measuring around corners with ultrasonic sensors

Ultrasonic sensors always emit their sound waves “straight forwards” by nature. However, the spatial conditions and installation location make it difficult to directly align the sensor housing with the object being monitored in many applications. Redirecting the sound waves using suitable angled reflectors is a practical solution for this problem.

Ultrasonic sensors always emit their sound waves “straight forwards” by nature. However, the spatial conditions and installation location make it difficult to directly align the sensor housing with the object being monitored in many applications. Redirecting the sound waves using suitable angled reflectors is a practical solution for this problem. For example, it is not possible to make new installation openings for ultrasonic sensors in many containers whose interiors needs to be monitored. In these cases, the sensors can simply be fitted parallel to the wall of the container on terminal blocks and the sound waves emitted from the sensors can be redirected through an existing opening using 90° reflectors. PiL Sensoren, a leading specialist for ultrasonic sensors, offers tried-and-tested solutions and a comprehensive range of mounting accessories for these types of application. Alongside ultrasonic sensors suitable for every requirement, the PiL product range includes optimally aligned 90° plastic reflectors, focusing attachments, and flexible metal reflectors for adjusting the angle of the sound wave to the specific requirements of the application. If you have any specific requirements, please contact the application consultants at PiL. You will find contact details at www.pil.de/kontakt.

Application know-how is key
The reliability of measurement solutions not only depends on the use of robust sensor technology, but also on specific design features of the selected sensor models, their application-specific configuration, and correct placement. That is why PiL, as a specialist for industrial ultrasonic sensor technology, supports its customers with comprehensive application know-how, detailed consultation, and where required, is happy to carry out customized modifications of its products as required.

No other sensor technology has such a versatile range of applications as ultrasonic technology: In the industrial sector alone, its applications range from recording filling levels and volume flows and measuring distances, heights, and widths through to detecting objects and obstacles in dynamic processes. Yet depending on their specific application, sensors often require costly modifications in order to work reliably. Inadequate conditioning of the signals or faulty seals on the housing of standard sensors can not only result in unsatisfactory measurement results but also in the early failure of the sensors. Yet it is usually extremely expensive for companies to commission the production of suitable and appropriately robust sensors. PiL Sensoren GmbH offers its customers a happy medium in the form of cost-effective solutions. Thanks to its own development and production facilities in Germany, this manufacturer of ultrasonic sensors not only specializes in the production of a wide range of robust standard models but can also supply sensors that have been configured for specific applications. Due to its decades of experience in the production and adaptation of customer-specific sensors, PIL can offer a broad range of tried-and-tested solutions. The company’s engineers also use their comprehensive expertise in different fields of application to develop durable sensor solutions for use in challenging operating conditions that offer good value for money. The technical consultants at PIL would be delighted to provide comprehensive advice to any customers who are looking for sensor solutions for their specific requirements.

PiL Sensoren GmbH – pioneer of ultrasound technology – has developed the P49 model series for a fast startup. The manufacturer individually parameterizes these sensors to meet customer requirements. This saves users the time they usually need for setting up ultrasonic sensors on site for an application. The savings potential is considerable – especially when it is not just a matter of a few sensors, but a medium to large quantity. The P49 series includes three types of sensors (M18, M30 and cubic 80 mm x 80 mm) for ranges from 30 mm to 6 m, optionally with switch outputs or with current or voltage outputs. With preset, each customer gets their own item number, giving them a unique product that can always be traced back to them. This in turn prevents errors in the field caused by unauthorized or unqualified parameterization. And even if it needs replacing in the field, nothing needs to be adjusted. The plastic sensors with protection type IP67 are suitable for ambient temperatures of -20 °C to 70 °C. They are used in a variety of applications, such as filling level measurement for liquids and bulk goods, in logistics for collision protection and position control, as well as for container inspection, thickness measurement and presence control – for example in the paper, film and textile industries. PiL offers comprehensive application know-how and responds flexibly to customer requirements at all times. And where application-specific parameterization is not sufficient, the manufacturer is also happy to support its customers on request with individually customized solutions. The development and manufacturing facilities of the specialist for industrial ultrasonic sensor technology are in Germany.

PiL offers a range of mounting solutions for making ultrasound measurements in closed containers to reliably and precisely detect the contents or filling level even in challenging applications. Depending on the medium, ultrasonic sensors with metric thread can simply be screwed into the housing wall. It must be ensured that no resonance vibrations occur that could falsify the measurement results. This simple screw-in solution does the job for some applications. Elsewhere, more or less elaborate seals are necessary. The sealing material needs to be super tight and hygienic for food and pharmaceutical applications. The sensors are attached with nuts from the inside and outside. This makes it difficult to replace sensors when necessary: The container has to be opened and the locknut can get lost. This is where PiL has developed a special vibration and resonance-free housing which is firmly mounted to the opening in the container wall from the outside. This then means the sensor can be flexibly replaced at any time as required. Absolute tightness guaranteed. This solution is particularly recommended for applications where sensors have short service lives or those in which the medium must not be contaminated. It is used for monitoring liquids as well as bulk solids and is also suitable for foodstuffs, alkalis and acids, among other things. PiL offers this housing for most of its sensor series. The measurement solution reliability not only depends on the use of robust sensor technology, but also on specific design features of the selected sensor models, their application-specific configuration, and correct placement. That is why PiL, as a specialist for industrial ultrasonic sensor technology, supports its customers with comprehensive application know-how, detailed consultation, and where required, is happy to carry out customized modifications of its products as required.

Following the EHEDG certification of P53 series hygienic ultrasonic sensors from PIL Sensoren GmbH, hygienic mounting kit specially developed for these sensors have now received the same certification. Consisting of two bolted-together semi-shells with one hole each to accommodate the sensor ends, these installation sets can be used to securely attach P53 sensors to walls or enclosures. When the parts are screwed together, FDA-approved food-safe gaskets made from 70/101 grade silicone are firmly pressed onto the conical ends of the sensor, which reliably and hygienically seals the gap between the sensor and the mounting kit. The „Steel Head“ P53 sensors and EHEDG-compliant mounting kits make PIL one of the few manufacturers of rugged ultrasonic sensors that are truly comprehensively suitable for use in applications with demanding hygienic requirements: due to its gapless design, the fully encapsulated, 30 mm wide housing of the P53 can be kept perfectly clean. Like the mounting kit, it is made from polished V4A grade stainless steel with a surface roughness of <0.6 µm. The sensors feature a narrow ultra-sonic beam with a range of 150 to 1,500 mm, which makes them very versatile for use throughout the food and beverage sector as well as the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Versions with analogue output (4..20 mA) are supplied with pre-set response curves, while models with a switch output allow for a quick and easy adjustment of the desired switching points via teach-in. "Steel Head" sensors are safe to clean with high pressure or steam jets thanks to their high ingress protection class (IP68/IP69K) and extended temperature range of -15 °C to +80 °C. They are ECOLAB certified and can therefore even be treated with aggressive chemical cleaning agents. With a food-grade cable and hygienic cable gland, PIL ultrasonic sensors meet EHEDG requirements at the connecting end as well. These superior characteristics make the PIL P53 system virtually the only off-the-shelf hygienic sensor solution on the market.
