Measuring the ground clearance on a field sprayer

Chemical-resistant ultrasonic sensors allow optimum spray arm alignment

For targeted crop protection the sprayer boom of a field sprayer must be guided as close as possible to the crop. The particularly resistant ultrasonic sensors RU100U-EMT18E-LI8X2-H1151 from Turck measure the distance between the sprayer boom and the field or crop. This is the prerequisite for precise alignment of the spray arms of a field sprayer and guarantees uniform distribution of the spray medium.

Your Benefits

  • Made from stainless steel for a long service life in mobile machines.
  • Simple installation in confined spaces thanks to compact design
  • Fast parameterization via teach line for application-specific measurement
  • PTFE transducer is resistant to chemicals during the injection process 

  • Chemical-resistant sensors enable a targeted application of crop protection

  • Optimal ground clearance measurement via ultrasonic

  • The compact sensor design facilitates an installation in confined spaces

  • Aggressive media cannot harm the fully potted RU100U sensor

Lasting measuring accuracy due to spray-resistant housing

The PTFE-coated transducer of the ultrasonic sensor resists the used crop protection agents and measures permanently precise. The robust sensor also withstands cleaning processes. This makes it ideal for use on a field sprayer. 

IP67 sensor compensates temperature influences

Thanks to integrated temperature compensation, the ultrasonic sensor delivers high-precision measurement data in the entire ambient temperature range from -25 to +50 degrees Celsius. The compact Diffuse mode sensor with IP67 protection offers detection ranges from 15 centimeters up to one meter and can easily be connected via a standard M12 connector.
