Preventive Maintenance on Conveyor Belts

Ultrasound reflection measurements offer an error-free and efficient solution for detecting the presence of objects on conveyor systems. The RU IP67 ultrasound sensor from Turck reliably detects objects.

Thanks to its IO-Link interface, the device transmits the signal quality in addition to the wanted signal, making it ideal for preventive maintenance. Since the devices can also display and compensate the internal temperature and external temperature fluctuations, they are always ready to use, irrespective of the ambient conditions.


  • The RU ultrasound sensor with IO-Link from Turck increases plant availability through preventive maintenance
  • Detects and transmits wanted signal and signal quality
  • Features switching output and analog output as well as IO-Link interface
  • Simple switching between reflex sensor and reflective sensor operating modes as well as NC and NO switching output possible

  • Among other things, the RU ultrasound sensors can be used as reflective sensors

  • Any damage to the reflector is immediately reported by the RU sensor…

  • …and issued as an alert

  • The sensors feature switching and analog outputs as well as an IO-Link interface
