PiL Sensoren GmbH has more than 20 years of experience in the field of ultrasonic sensor technology. This makes the company a globally recognised specialist in the development and manufacture of ultrasonic distance sensors for use in industrial automation, monitoring and vehicle technology. With their almost unlimited service life, these products are the perfect complement for non-contact measuring sensor systems.

Ultrasonic sensors are used in industrial environments, regardless of the material and colour of the object to be measured. The sensors detect distances ranging from millimetres to several metres. The operating principle of ultrasonic sensors is based on the time-of-flight measurement of ultrasound, which is emitted by the sensor as a high-frequency pulse and reflected by the target.

A large number of special sensors developed in cooperation with customers, as well as the ever growing product range, are testimony to the company’s innovative strength. In recent years, for example, it has become possible to integrate analogue and switching ultrasonic distance sensors into the housings of light scanners, offering a type of housing that is well known in the market.
