Image processing is one of the most crucial and challenging sensor technologies of the future. Until recently, integrating vision sensors into practical applications was difficult and extremely expensive. Today, vision sensors can be implemented in a wide variety of industries and applications, offering cost advantages over standard solutions in difficult sensing environments.
The available devices and systems range from barcode images to vision sensors and system solutions that are adapted to the application requirements. The complexity of the solution and the cost of integration vary with each use. Each technology has advantages that are best suited for the application at hand.
In industrial applications, ultrasonic sensors are characterized by their reliability and outstanding versatility. Ultrasonic sensors can be used to solve even the most complex tasks involving objectdetection or level measurement 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.
The measuring method employed by ultrasonic sensors has been viewed as an excessively complex technology, and only used as a “last resort” … as a solution for particularly difficult applications. Those times have long since passed!
Ultrasonic sensors have proven their reliability and endurance in virtually all industrial sectors.
