US Edge Tracking sensor / US-U30AN Ultrasonic sensors

US-U30AN Ultrasonic sensors


Edge detecting Ultrasonic U shaped sensor - 1 to 5VDC analog output. Typical application would be edge tracking of polymer, paper, or web; such that center point (1/2 output scale) is best position, and tracked +/- from best point.

Device was designed to be tolerant of standing waves typically encountered in these process applications.


  • Ultrasonic edge control sensor
  • Analog output delivers 1 to 5VDC
  • Ideal for detecting transparent film sheet, paper and foil
