Ultrasonic Sensors by Sick
Light and sound are two natural phenomena which let every living being recognize their environment without physical contact and over widely varying distances. Likewise, industrial processes require reliable environmental information. SICK’s ultrasonic sensors UM 30 and UM 18 detect objects and measure distances with high accuracy. The realm of sound is a world of its own, and for this reason Ultrasonic sensors are simply the better choice in many industrial applications requiring sensor technology.
