Measuring the ground clearance on a field sprayer

PTFE-Coated 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 T30UXICQ8-CRFV 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

  • Robust and compact design for a long service life in mobile machines.
  • Simple installation in confined spaces thanks to lateral cable/plug connection
  • Simple parameterization via teach button or teach line for application-specific measurement
  • PTFE transducer is resistant to chemicals during the injection process

    The ultrasonic sensor optimally measures the ground clearance to the field sprayer


    Simple installation in confined spaces thanks to lateral cable/plug connection

    T30UXICQ8 ultrasonic sensors are resistant to chemicals thanks to PTFE coating


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 -40 to +70 degrees Celsius. The Diffuse mode sensors with IP67 protection offer detection ranges from 30 centimeters up to 3 meters and short blind zones of only 10 % of the maximum range. The compact sensors in threaded barrel design connect users via standard M12 connectors.
