Turck Analog Version of RU50 Eco Ultrasonic Sensors

A new analog version has been added to Turck's RU50 Eco family of ultrasonic sensors. With both switching and analog versions of these sensors now available, you will have more options for reliable object detection applications requiring ultrasonic technology. Even though the price point is low, no sacrifices were made in functionality. Ultrasonic sensors are ideal in applications where photoelectric sensors have difficulty such as target objects with reflective/glossy surfaces or areas with poor lighting conditions.

Schmersal SATECH Guarding Systems

Schmersal SATECH Guarding Systems 

Schmersal is proud to partner with SATECH to provide guarding solutions in the US and Canada.

These guarding systems are of low carbon steel construction. Upright posts and panel frame members are a solid extrusion for extra durability. Fence mesh is constructed by 2 mm diameter steel wire, arc welded at each junction. The construction methods utilized make the assembled system impact resistant up to1600J in ISO 14120 dynamic resistance tests – exceeding the standard set by many automotive manufacturers. 

Fencing mesh is spaced 19 mm apart with cross members every 100 mm. This predominantly vertical slot opening reduces interference when trying to view processes on the far side of the fence. The design also deters workers from climbing the fence by providing no toe holds, when panels are installed with the cross pieces inside the hazardous area. 

Components are finished using hard-wearing epoxy polyester powder paints. Typical constructions consist of yellow (RAL1021) upright posts with black (RAL9005) panels and accessories. Components can be produced in custom colors to meet individual customer requirements. 

These systems are custom designed for each client. We collaborate on the design to meet the specific requirements of each customer. SATECH’s patented 3D AutoCAD program with a built in library of parts enables the design of complex layouts in a very short time. A layout can be designed directly onto a customer’s drawing – which immediately picks the optimal modular components. This service also provides a 3D drawing and a complete parts list which can be easily understood by assembly personnel. 

The custom designed solutions will include all of the necessary installation hardware. Panels and posts can be directly bolted together, or use patented adjustable clip systems. The system utilizes patented captive fastening systems, in accordance with Machinery Directive 2006/42/CE; if a panel needs to be temporarily removed, the fastening hardware will remain in place so pieces will not be lost. 

The modular panels of each series are available in a wide range of sizes. Besides the standard fence mesh, panels are also offered as sheet panels, either opaque steel or transparent heavy duty plastic. Panels can also be of mixed materials, such as top fence mesh/bottom sheet panel, or have custom apertures. Systems also offer several types of doors for access to the protected areas. Additional accessories to finish off the system include kick plates, cable duct supports, and reinforced linear joints. 

We also offer a wide range of compatible safety sensors, locks, and door handle assemblies for the complete safety solution.
