Sometimes in life, you just can’t go with the crowd. You need to adapt to new realities, stand out, and become an expert at meeting the unique conditions that you’re facing. When there’s a particular problem to solve, you’re ‘the specialist’ who gets it done right!
If you need an ultrasonic sensor for a particular application, I’d like to introduce you to five sensing types in our ultrasonic sensor family. These problem-solving sensors are designed for specific conditions where an ordinary ultrasonic sensor just won’t do!
Ultrasonic sensors for hazardous locations
In order to be installed in hazardous areas, ultrasonic sensors have to meet specific safety requirements. They must be designed with hazardous locations in mind.
Our HazLoc ultrasonic sensors are UL and CSA certified for use in environments up to Class I, Div. 2. The Class I, Div. 2 approved models are represented by –HA in the model number. UC500-30GM-IU-V1-HA is an example. There is also an –HB model that is usable in all Division 2 areas as well as Class II, Div. 1 and Class III, Div. 1 environments. The example model number for this type is UC2000-30GM-IU-V1-HB. All of the hazardous location ultrasonic sensors only have an analog output. This is selectable for current (4 mA … 20 mA) or voltage (0 V … 10 V). These sensors also include an M30 to 1/2” NPT adapter for connection through conduit.
