Waste water treatment produces enormous amounts of sewage sludge on a daily basis. This waste product has to be processed or properly disposed of. Either way, it is necessary to load the sewage sludge into appropriate transport containers. Ultrasonic sensors monitor the process to prevent overfilling of the containers.
Drivable aerial work platforms are common on many construction sites. These platforms facilitate working in high locations and increase productivity. However, since severe accidents involving aerial work platforms may occur due to collisions, the safety aspect should not be ignored. Ultrasonic sensors safeguard the operation of this equipment.
Logistics applications in the material handling industry rely on forklifts for safely transporting heavy loads to their destination. Ultrasonic sensors monitor specific areas of the forklift to ensure accuracy and reliability. With ultrasonic sensors, you can determine whether a pallet is on the fork and how far the fork is inserted under the pallet.
Detecting and counting bottles at several points in the machine ensures continuous monitoring of material flow. The entry and exit of bottles in the filling system is optimized and missing bottles in the chain are reliably detected. Even in areas with strong steam generation, reliable detection of bottles is guaranteed with ultrasonic thru-beam sensors.
In car parking lots and parking garages, entry is controlled using barrier systems. The barrier must not be lowered when there is a vehicle underneath. Ultrasonic sensors are particularly suitable for controlling this process. They detect objects regardless of vehicle type or color and monitor the entire area below the barrier.
