The Sensors – Part 5: Ultrasonic Proximity Sensor

   The Sensors – Part 5: Ultrasonic Proximity Sensor By BeneGlow® 

   In the previous Part-4, we have been told about Ultrasonic Proximity Sensors.

   Nowadays in the market have two basic kinds of ultrasonic sensor for measuring the distance to a near or coming object.

   We divided Ultrasonic Proximity Sensors into two groups, related the principle of operation:

   Two Component System – Described in Part-4,
and  Single Component System – the subject of today’s topic.

    The Single Component Ultrasonic Proximity Sensors utilizes a single Component Acoustic Converter.



PIC. 2  Description with  pictures


   Firstly, the Ultrasonic sensor works as a transmitter, sending the scanning Ultrasonic beam at series of packets.

   The speed of propagation the acoustic wave is equal a velocity of sound (343.2 m/s) / 2 (related to a signal twice path to, and from the object).

   Secondary:  Immediately, after the last packet has sent, the System changes its principle of work and became the receiver.

   Now, the system is “Listening” for reflection from the surface of any obstacle or subjects of the transmitted acoustic wave. Using such principle, the single component system creates wide ultrasonic beam – the angle in most common cases is above 75-degree.

   Let’s present a real example of the sensor using described working principle:
