Press Release Summary:
Suited for variety of level control applications, U-GAGEÂ® Sensors feature factory-installed TeflonÂ® flange and film coating bonded over transducer, sealing against gases and vapors. QT50U models offer sensing range of 200 mm to 8 m, while T30U models feature 300 mm to 1.5 m sensing range. Both include TEACH programming, fully encapsulated IP67/NEMA 6P design, status LEDs, and inherent immunity to target color differences and light interferences.
Original Press Release:
Chemically Resistant U-Gage® Ultrasonic Sensors
September 13, 2005 - Banner Engineering announces the addition of chemically resistant models to their U-GAGE® line of ultrasonic sensors. The chemical protection comes from a factory-installed Teflon® flange and film coating bonded over the sensors transducer, sealing against gases and vapors that would destroy standard models. Chemically resistant U-GAGE ultrasonic sensors are available in all QT50U and most T30U models and are ideal for a wide variety of level control applications in cleaning, etching and other chemical processes where material is corrosive or caustic.
QT50U models have a sensing range of 200 mm to 8 m, and T30U models have a sensing range of 300 mm to 1.5 m. With the exception of range, performance specifications for both sensors are identical to those of the corresponding standard models and include the following:
A variety of outputs and voltages
QT50U models available with 10 to 30V dc and analog or discrete outputs, and universal voltage 85 to 264V ac/24 to 250V dc with a SPDT electromechanical relay output
T30U models with 10 to 30V dc with discrete or analog/discrete outputs
Fast, easy-to-use TEACH programming that uses two on-board push buttons
Fully encapsulated designs rated IP67, NEMA 6P for use in harsh environments
Inherent immunity to target color differences and high-power light interference
Bright LEDs that display status during setup and operation
Models with high/low limit controls
Unique housings for multiple mounting configurations using the sensor's threaded nose or a variety of brackets
