TURCK sensors provide important information for efficient industrial automation, such as discrete and analog position signals, level control, flow rates, temperatures, speed, and directional feedback.
Turck offers more than 5,000 proximity sensors based on inductive, capacitive, or magnetic principals of operation, along with ultrasonic, flow, linear and rotary position sensors to implement your made-to-measure solutions. Turck’s sensor product portfolio includes inductive, capacitive, magnetic, ultrasonic, linear position, rotary position, inclination, pressure, temperature, flow, and more sensors.
Over the last 50 years, Turck has built a reputation for designing and building reliable non-contact inductive sensors that are widely used in diverse positioning applications. Due to our extensive experience, we have created a broad product portfolio that enables a designer to find the sensor that fits the application.
Our portfolio includes standard inductive sensors as well as patented sensing technologies like uprox®, which sense all metals at the same range and at greater ranges than standard inductive sensors.
Capacitive sensors utilize a non-contact sensing technology that detects a wide variety of materials. These sensors make use of a compensation electrode, and most come with sensitivity adjustments that allow a designer to tune out certain materials such as glass or plastic, making this type of sensor a common choice for point level applications.
Magnetic position sensors are typically used on pneumatic cylinders that have internal magnets and non-ferrous housings. Turck has developed a number of different sensor housings and accessories that allow a designer to mount a BIM sensor on all common pneumatic air cylinders. In addition, we offer barrel sensor housings that can be used with external magnets for position applications.
Ultrasonic sensors are non-contact sensors that use sound waves to sense the target, making these sensors very versatile in solving both position and linear position applications. The ultrasonic sensor family has many options, including rectangular and barrel designs with set point, analog and/or IO-Link outputs.
Turck’s linear position sensors are available in a variety of sensing technologies that provide a designer with a variety of options when deciding which solution best fits the application.
Inductive linear position sensors are non-contact sensors using the R-L-C principle of operation, with measuring ranges up to 1,000 mm.
Magnetic linear position sensors are non-contact sensors using external magnets with imbedded hall effect sensors measuring ranges up to 200 mm.
Magnetostrictive linear position sensors are non-contact sensors using external magnets measuring ranges up to 300 in.
Draw wire (or cable pull) are mechanically operated devices with measuring ranges up to 40 m.
Turck rotary position sensors are available in a non-contact rotary inductive sensor, as well as optical and magnetic encoders that offer a variety of options when deciding what solution best fits the application.
Inductive rotary position sensors are non-contact sensors using the R-L-C principle of operation with a choice of analog, incremental, SSI, or CANopen interface.
Optical encoders are available in shaft or hollow shaft, a variety of sizes and interfaces including incremental outputs and absolute protocols.
Magnetic encoders are available in shaft or hollow shaft.
Draw wire (or cable pull) are mechanically operated devices with measuring ranges up to 40 M.
Inclination sensors are a mems based sensor family that provide angular measurement relative to gravity. Depending on the sensor selected, these sensors are capable of single axis (up to 360°) or dual axis (X-Y) measurement angles ranging from 5° to 85°. Output choices include analog voltage, analog current, PNP, IO-Link, and CANopen.
Pressure sensors from Turck capture relative or absolute pressures in liquids and gases.
The PS series offers display, showing measuring ranges from vacuum to 600 bar. Outputs include set point, analog, and IO-Link. The PT series are transmitters without displays, measuring from vacuum to 7,500 PSIG. Outputs include 2 wire current and 3 wire analog voltage. The PK series offers display, and is specially designed for pneumatic or vacuum applications. Measuring ranges are either vacuum or 145 PSIG, with dual PNP outputs. The PC series are pressure switches with dual PNP outputs or IO-Link communication.
Temperature sensors from Turck offer tailor-made solutions via displays, simple programming, and flexible process connections.
These sensors are available as 100 ohm platinum RTD, RTD transmitters with and without IO-Link, and temperature transmitters with display.
Flow sensors from Turck are a versatile family of products with the ability to use either insertion or in-line designs to measure flow. These sensors are available as a calometric design that is best suited for monitoring flow, or as a magnetic inductive which functions as a flow meter.
Users can utilize the respective advantages of different measuring principles for level detection or continuous level measurement. This depends on factors such as whether granular media or liquids where foam forms on the surface are used. Similarly, special solutions are required for mounting in confined spaces, in areas with explosion protection and in particularly deep containers.
Turck offers a comprehensive portfolio featuring sensors for various media and environments and both medium-contacting and contactless detection. These include capacitive and magnetostrictive sensors, fiber-optic sensors and ultrasonic sensors, and devices with a guided microwave.
Turck offers a large selection of accessories for operation, mounting and protection of sensors. The range comprises functional accessories and actuators, mounting accessories for simple and safe mounting as well as protective aids for protection against mechanical load.
