Ultrasonic sensor UT20 - SensoPart

Compact ultrasonic sensor with sound code - SensoPart

The ultrasonic sensor with sound cone UT 20-S from SensoPart has a very compact cubic shape. The narrow sound cone allows objects to be detected through the smallest openings and drilled holes with a diameter of less than 5 mm.

Sound cone for special applications

This makes the ultrasonic sensor ideal for special applications, such as level measurement in microplate wells in medical analysis systems or for scanning printed circuit boards in the electronics industry. The ultrasonic sensor has a switching distance of 150 mm. The UT-20 variant has a switching distance of up to 700 mm. The ultrasonic sensors are available with different outputs: NPN / PNP, NO / NC, 0-10V, 4-20 mA or an analogue output. Read more about ultrasonic sensors.

Inductive sensors - SensoPart

Because of the functional principle of SensoPart inductive sensors, the sensors are only suitable for the detection of metal objects. The inductive sensors are mainly used for detection of uniform movements, for example as proximity switches for determining the position of transported machine parts such as saddles or hydraulic cylinders, for measuring rotational speeds on crankshafts of vehicles or as pulse generators for engine ignition.

Reliable, maintenance-free and versatile

Inductive sensors are extremely accurate due to their high repeatability levels. Their simple design and uncomplicated commissioning ensure minimum downtime. Whether it is robotics, assembly and handling, in factory automation or mechanical engineering: SensoPart inductive sensors are reliable, require no maintenance and offer versatile use thanks to the many available housings and dimensions.

Fiber sensors and fiber cables - SensoPart

Fiber sensors and fiber cables

The SensoPart fiber systems are the ideal solution if the installation and operating conditions are tight, hot and dirty. Sensors are protected in a control box or at a safe distance while the fiber heads are mounted close to the objects. Possible areas of application are presence detection in rotating transfer machines, the detection of small electronic components or the level measurement of liquids.

Features of fiber sensors and cables:

  • Wide range of fiber cables for standard applications or individual customer requirements
  • Numerous setting options: dynamic teach-in or use of external control cable, speed and precision setting, timing functions
  • Intelligent mounting solutions for fiber optic sensors and cables for easy installation and adjustment

Typical fork sensors and optical windows

Forks and optical window sensors exhibit characteristic features as a result of their special housing design: thanks to their precise beam guidance, they are particularly suitable for the detection of small parts. The sensors are also easy to assemble because no time-consuming adjustment is required.

Detection of small parts

The fork sensors of the FGL-IK and FGL-RK series detect components from a diameter of 0.2 mm. For example, they are used for detection of small parts on conveyor sections and sleeves or for counting bulk goods on vibration bands. Rotational speed measurement is another typical application.

Smartplug | SensoPart


SmartPlug from SensoPart prevents expensive timing elements or additional controls from being used, because the SmartPlug makes the sensor smarter. Connected to SmartPlug, the sensor takes over additional control functions. As a timer, counter or inverter, for monitoring the frequency, or for delays in delay or drop-out.

SmartPlug is suitable for sensors from all manufacturers with standardized M12 plugs; a special adapter cable is available for connection to an M8 plug. SmartPlug offers its sophisticated electronics in a small, easy-to-handle 60 x 20 mm² plug housing. With its maximum output current of 400 mA, the SmartPlug can also be used as a switching amplifier. SmartPlug: plugin intelligence.

Capacitive Sensors - SensoPart

Capacitive sensors are suitable for detecting all types of metal and non-metal objects. Even very transparent glasses or liquids are easy to detect with a capacitive sensor from SensoPart. Only the dielectric conductivity of the target material is relevant: the greater the dielectric constant of a material, the higher the possible switching distances or the more reliable the detection.

Detect from the outside

Measuring fill levels is one of the classic applications of capacitive sensors because many liquids have relatively high dielectric constants. Under certain circumstances it is also possible to measure from outside the container because capacitive sensors can look through walls, as it were. They are also used for the detection of solids such as wood, paper and plastics.

Great immunity against disruptive factors

They can be found in the most diverse industrial sectors because of their great immunity against disruptive factors of all kinds. SensoPart offers a wide range of capacitive sensors in enclosures for all application areas. Read more about capacitive sensors.

F18-2 serie Cylindrical photocells and optical sensors - SensoPart

Cylindrical photocells and optical sensors - SensoPart

Sensors in a cylindrical housing offer several advantages compared to the cubic design: On the one hand they are very robust, on the other hand, they can be installed in a particularly simple and space-saving way, thanks to the integrated threading. And, they are also very economically priced.

Design-typical advantages

The new F 18-2 series from SensoPart also offers all of these design-typical advantages, but exploits them even further. Thus, the sensors with a metric 18 mm thread are optionally available in a very stable full metal housing, where the plugs are also made of metal. Two additional housing bore holes and the extensive as well as sophisticated mounting accessories, provide the user with a broad variety of installation options. Read more about cylindrical photocells.
