AutomationDirect Adds More 18mm and 30mm Ultrasonic Proximity Sensors

Press Release:
  May 8, 2014 — AutomationDirect’s new UK6 series 18mm ultrasonic sensors are now available with shorter bodies for easier mounting in tight spaces. Also, the new UT2F wide face series of 30mm sensors has an increased sensing distance of up to six meters. Both series are available with 10 output types in combinations of PNP and NPN discrete outputs; 0-10VDC or 4-20mA analog outputs are available.

These IP67-rated sensors are equipped with LED status indicators and have either an attached two-meter output cable or an M12 quick-disconnect connector. The 18mm UK6 series sensors start at $89 and are available in sensing ranges from 40mm to 900mm. The 30mm UT2F series sensors start at $325 and have a 350-6000 mm sensing range. Both series have complete overload protection, are backed by a lifetime warranty and are cULus, CE and RoHS approved.
