Custom Object Detection Systems

Senix ToughSonic® Ultrasonic Sensors, perhaps the most versatile and flexible sensors available today, can be used in a wide variety of object detection applications and can be customized for users’ specific needs.

For example, businesses around the globe are seeking solutions for modern social distancing requirements. Or, perhaps a beacon is needed to know if a vehicle has pulled up to the loading dock, or a method of knowing whether a buffer space has been breached, or an alarm to sound if a pallet or obstacle is left in a controlled area. Senix has an appropriate solution for each instance.

Senix has state-of-the-art non-contact ultrasonic sensors can detect most materials: hard or soft, any colour or transparency, flat or curved. Unlike traditional proximity sensors, Senix ultrasonic sensors operate over longer distances, and can be set up to limit object detection within a user-specified distance band or “window”.

Furthermore, Senix Object Detection Systems can incorporate multiple sensors, and Senix sensors easily connect with common automation equipment and can control relays, alarms, displays, motor controllers, etc.  Applications range from simple ON/OFF switches to relay connections, PLC inputs and multi-sensor detection networks. They are cost effective, with many user-adjustable features built into the sensor’s software – power that you can unlock with SenixVIEW PC software.

Applications for Senix Object Detection Systems include:

  • People Detection: Kiosks & Displays, Social Distance Monitoring
  • Web Break: Printing & Converting, Automated Packaging
  • Discriminating: Material Handling
  • Counting & Controlling: Material Handling
  • Warnings: Transportation, Industry
  • Avoidance: Robotics, Transportation
