Description

The lpc+ ultrasonic sensors

are optionally equipped with two Push-Pull switching outputs or an analogue output plus a Push-Pull switching output. The compact series with M18 threaded sleeves coves four detection ranges from 20 mm to 1.3 m.

Ultrasonic sensors with the Push-Pull output stage support SIO and IO-Link modes. Sensors with analogue output are optionally available with 4–20 mA current output or 0–10 V voltage output.

In SIO mode, sensors are configured using the microsonic Teach-in procedure on pin 5.

For the lpc+ sensor family

there are 2 output stages and 4 detection ranges available:

2 Push-Pull-switching outputs, optionally in pnp or npn circuitry with IO-Link interface
1 Push-Pull switching output and analogue output 4–20 mA or 0–10 V

Ultrasonic sensors with switching output have three operating modes:

  • Single switching point
  • Two-way reflective barrier
  • Window mode

Teach-in of a single switching point

  • Place object to be detected (1) at the desired distance
  • Apply +UB to pin 5 for about 3 seconds
  • Then apply +UB to pin 5 again for about 1 second

Teach-in of a switching point

Teach-in of a two-way reflective barrier

with a fixed reflector

  • Apply +UB to pin 2 for about 3 seconds
  • Then apply +UB to pin 2 again for about 10 seconds

Teach-in of a two-way reflective barrier

For configuration of a window

  • Place object at the near edge of the window (1)
  • Apply +UB to pin 5 for about 3 seconds
  • Then move the object to the far edge of the window (2)
  • Then apply +UB to pin 5 again for about 1 second

Teach-in of an analogue characteristic or a window with two switching points

NCC/NOC

and rising/falling analogue characteristic curve can also be set via pin 5.

One green and one yellow LED

indicate the state of the output and support microsonic Teach-in.

LinkControl

optionally permits the extensive parameterisation of lpc+ sensors. The LCA-2 LinkControl adapter , which is available as an accessory, can be used to connect lpc+ sensors to the PC.

Easy to synchronise

A number of lpc+ ultrasonic sensors can be run closely packed in applications synchronised to stop them from influencing one another. To this end, the sync mode has to be activated and all the sensors are to be electrically connected one to another with pin 5.

IO-Link integrated

in version 1.1. The lpc+ ultrasonic sensors are equipped with Smart Sensor Profile, which creates more transparency between IO-Link devices.
