U-GAGE S18U Series—Discrete

Overview

  • Offers 10 to 30V dc supply voltage with bipolar NPN or PNP output
  • Senses from 30 to 300 mm
  • Features minimal dead zone and eliminates dead zone if used in retrosonic mode
  • Ideal for material handling and packaged goods applications, such as bottling or liquid level detection and control for small containers
  • Available in straight or right-angle versions with a wide variety of mounting hardware for enhance sensing versatility
  • Offers programmable background suppression
  • Compensates for temperature, for greatest sensing accuracy
  • Simplifies setup with push-button and remote TEACH-mode programming
  • Shows status during setup and operation, using highly visible LEDs indicators
