Pepperl+Fuchs’ Ultrasonic Sensors

pepperl_ultrasonic_blog copy

Ultrasonic sensors are characterized by their reliability and outstanding versatility. Ultrasonic sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs can be used to solve even the most complex tasks involving object detection or level measurment with millimeter precision, because their measuring method works reliably under almost all conditions.

No other measuring method can be successfully put to use on such a wide scale and in so many different applications. The devices are extremely robust, making them suitable for even the toughest conditions. The sensor surface cleans itself through vibration, and that is not the only reason why the sensor is insensitive to dirt. The physical principle—the propagation of sound—works, with a few exceptions, in practically any environment.

Great for use in:

  • Agriculture
  • Building materials
  • Construction
  • Food and beverage
  • Level measurement
  • Material handling
  • Mechanical engineering/machine tool
  • Pulp and paper
  • Woodworking and furniture

Honeywell’s High Sensitivity Latching Digital Hall-Effect Sensor ICs

Honeywell_VF360 copy

The VF360NT, VF360ST, and VF460S High Sensitivity Latching Digital Hall-Effect Sensor ICs are small, sensitive and versatile devices that are operated by the magnetic field from a permanent magnet or an electromagnet. They are designed to respond to alternating North and South poles. The VF360NT is turned ON by a North pole, while the VF360ST and VF460S are turned ON by a South pole. This sensor IC does not use chopper stabilization on the Hall element, providing a clean output signal and a faster latch response time when compared to competitive high sensitivity Hall-effect latching sensor ICs which do use chopper stabilization.

Features:

  • Qualified to the AEC-Q100 standard for potential use in automotive applications
  • Fastest response time in its class [1.5 μs]
  • Operate from 30 Gauss typical at 25°C [77 °F] and 55 Gauss maximum over the full -40 °C to 150 °C [-40 °F to 302 °F] temperature range
  • Latching magnetics
  • Repeatable magnetics (no jitter)
  • No additional electronic noise generated by sensor
  • 3 Vdc to 24 Vdc
  • Built-in reverse polarity protection
  • RoHS-compliant material

Potential Applications:

  • BLDC motor commutation for automotive applications: Air input flap to engine, convertible roof position, electronic parking brakes, electronic window lifts and anti-pinch power window systems, HVAC blowers, headlights, power doors, mirrors and tail gates, seat motors, steering, windshield washers and wipers
