Ultrasonic linear displacement sensors

One of the most specific and niche applications of ultrasonic sensors is related to so-called Web Guidance. Applicable both in the printing industry and in textiles. One of the main challenges facing these two industries is the alignment of sheet or roll material when moving at high speeds. A key element in systems for aligning and guiding these materials is the ultrasonic sensor. At STS Electronics we produce a whole series of these - UDS63.

The purpose of ultrasonic sensors for linear displacement is to monitor precisely the displacement of an object (the position of the edge), most often it is printed or textile material on a sheet or roll. An advantage of this type of sensor is that it is not affected by whether the material is dark or light and by the ambient light. The UDS63 has a 25 mm sensitive area where the active elements - ultrasonic heads or so-called transducers - are located. When moving the object in this zone, the output signal also changes.

Ultrasonic linear displacement sensors have two heads as active parts - a receiver and an emitter. UDS63 series contains sensors with different output function like 0-10V, -10V.....+10V, 4.....20mA etc.

Thanks to this type of sensors, the printing and textile industries achieve high efficiency of the production process. For example, printing, finishing and converting machines in this industry rely heavily on Web Guidance systems based on ultrasonic sensors for linear displacement control.

When the ultrasonic transducer senses a linear shift through a change in the output signal, it feeds that information to a downstream mechanic that can compensate for that shift.
