Measuring Position and Distance

Whether ranges of a few millimeters or a hundred meters – Turck offers the right sensor solution for position and distance measurement. The portfolio includes inductive and photoelectric sensors as well as ultrasonic, radar and linear position sensors. Encoders for measuring angular positions and rotary movements are also available.

Smart Features:

  • Monitor mechanical movements of machine parts for wear – thanks to the integrated analysis of missing positioning elements
  • Detect an imminent device failure at an early stage with the sensor-internal temperature monitoring

Benefit from high precision, absolute wear-free design and maximum robustness for numerous tasks:

  • Distance measurement
  • Position determination
  • Object measurement
  • Diameter measurement
  • Sag and deformation control
  • Material flow monitoring
  • Level measurement

Detecting Objects

Contactless and precise sensors from Turck detect a wide variety of objects such as wood, paper, metal, liquids, granules or permanent magnets. Depending on the required range and external conditions, inductive, capacitive or magnetic field sensors are ideal. Photoelectric and ultrasonic sensors show their strengths at greater distances.

Smart Features: 

  • Intelligent movement play detection of positioned objects – to prevent mechanical failure
  • Machine data analysis via an integrated counter for operating hours and switching cycles

Sensors for object detection are used in many fields of application: 

  • Parts detection and counting
  • Presence control
  • Stack height monitoring
  • Clear object detection
  • Small parts detection
  • Level detection
  • Position detection in cylinders
  • Position feedback

Detecting Fluids

The wide range of measuring and monitoring tasks in fluid sensor technology requires a variety of solutions. Turck therefore not only offers pressure, temperature and flow sensors, but also sensors for level measurement and level detection – on the basis of different, application-optimized technologies.

Smart Features:

  • Environmental monitoring during the parameterization of flow sensors – for efficient and error-free commissioning
  • Peak value memory for pressure and temperature simplifies subsequent analyses of the machine

Turck's fluid sensor portfolio covers a wide range of process conditions, for example in the following applications:

  • Flow monitoring 
  • Temperature control 
  • Pressure measurement 
  • Level measurement 
  • Level detection of liquids and solids
