Day 3: Next Level of Ultrasonic Technology

Next Level of Ultrasonic Technology

Intelligent, Functionally Safe and Autonomous

What Was It All About?

Ultrasonic sensors have rapidly gained popularity in recent years—what was once a niche product has now become a key technology that can be found almost everywhere in the automation sector.

As the market leader in this sector, Pepperl+Fuchs dedicated a whole day of events at its second Online Summit to providing insight into the latest trends and future developments. The theme of the day was “Next Level of Ultrasonic Technology,” with keynotes, presentations, and panel discussions exploring a variety of topics in further detail.

The event addressed the following questions:

  • What advantages can state-of-the-art ultrasonic sensors offer currently

  • How can safety applications be resolved using ultrasonic sensors

  • What exactly is a wireless M+O ultrasonic sensor
