Ultrasonic Sensors

Ultrasonic sensors may be a useful alternative where optical sensors come up against their physical limits. This applies, for example, for objects with uneven surfaces or under difficult ambient conditions, or with highly transparent media as well as moving, highly reflective liquid surfaces.

➔ Reliable detection of objects with critical surfaces and highly transparent objects
➔ Available in cubic (32 x 20 x 12 mm) or barrel type (M12/M18/M30) housing options
➔ Simple adjustment via teach-in, control input or display


  • Detection & Inspection

    ➔ Is the object present? How is it lying on the belt? Is a detail missing or has it been incorrectly assembled?  These and many other applications can be reliably automated with sensors from SensoPart.

  • Identification

    ➔ The continuous tracking of parts and products with the aid of a code is of increasing importance in industrial processes. Parts are generally labelled with one-dimensional barcodes or two-dimensional data matrix codes, which are either printed or applied using dot-peen or laser marking technology (direct marking). Our VISOR® Code Readers reliably read all industry standard code types.

  • Detecting colors

    ➔ Differences in color and contrast are important characteristics for the detection and differentiation of objects. Sensors from SensoPart reliably detect colored objects, prints, and labels during production processes or quality assurance.

  • Measurement

    ➔ Many processes involve the measurement of analog values, such as the distance or thickness of an object.  SensoPart distance sensors using triangulation or time-of-flight technology are ideally suited for such applications. If it is necessary to check specific geometrical characteristics of components, our vision sensors offer simple options for detecting the value in question, and thanks to simple calibration the result can be output in the required metric unit.

  • Positioning

    ➔ The precise positioning of parts is a key process in industrial production. A targeted robot gripper is always necessary – whether a component has to be picked up, put down or processed. Our vision sensors always have an eye on the exact position, and supply the values in robot coordinates in a few simple steps. When detecting objects on different planes, the vision sensor can be optimally combined with a precise optical switching sensor, if necessary even with distance output.

Industry Solutions

Assembly & Handling
There’s no-one in sight, everything is moving as if by magic: conveyor systems are rumbling, robot arms are gyrating, workpieces are being separated, picked up and put down, and then transported on conveyor belts and finally assembled. SensoPart sensors ensure that all these procedures are carried out seamlessly and without any human intervention.

The handling and assembly of sensitive electronic components require utmost precision. Switching sensors and vision sensors from SensoPart guarantee smooth procedures and error-free results.

Solar Industry
Production and quality assurance of solar cells is largely automated for reasons of cost efficiency, and switching sensors and vision sensors from SensoPart play an important role.

Automotive Industry
The automotive industry has always placed extremely high demands on quality and process reliability, with automated tasks that are becoming more and more challenging. Sensors from SensoPart satisfy all the expectations of both manufacturers and suppliers.

Food & Beverages
Is the right juice in the right bottle? Are the cookies the required shade of brown? Has the use-by date been added to the packaging? SensoPart sensors supply reliable answers to these and many other questions.

Automation is unimaginable without robots in many sectors of industry today: collaborative robot systems (cobots) in particular, which can work side by side with people, have become widely used over recent years. Vision sensors from SensoPart serve as the “eyes” of cobots.

Plastics Technology
Like many other sectors, the plastics processing industry is under growing cost pressure, while the trend for more frequent batch changes with smaller quantities is causing increasingly complex process cycles. SensoPart sensors enable widespread automation of production and quality assurance processes, and help sharpen a company’s competitive edge.

Laboratory Automation
Whether in the handling of liquids of any kind or the preparation and analysis of test tubes, SensoPart sensors help laboratories prevent errors and contribute to efficient processes.

Pharmaceuticals & Cosmetics
The production of pharmaceuticals is a sensitive matter, as people’s health is at stake. SensoPart sensors conscientiously check contents and packaging.
