SENSORS
Fundamental components for process control, Gefran's sensors measure main variables such as temperature, pressure, position and force. The main element of the sensors is produced in cleanrooms, in environments protected from any kind of pollutant and equipped with highly technological work and control instruments. 

COMPONENTS
Three product lines are dedicated to indicating and controlling process variables: static groups, regulators and electronic indicators. A range of constantly evolving devices capable of providing innovative solutions and responding to the needs of process optimisation and intelligent management of energy consumption. These devices complete the range of support services offered and faster delivery times, the key factors that make Gefran a competitive and reliable partner.

AUTOMATION PLATFORMS
Gefran designs and manufactures automation control systems offering machine constructors a wide range of specific components (Unit Control Panels, Operator Interfaces, input/output systems, as well as programmable logic controllers and industrial PLC). This dedicated division also designs and develops solutions that adapt to customer projects, offering unique and exclusive "turnkey" solutions.

MOTION CONTROL
This range of products, designed and manufactured at the Drive and Motion Control Unit of Gefran in Gefrenzano (VA), consists of continuous and alternating current electronic drives and electric motors, including a complete range to fully satisfy the needs of industrial automation. The line also includes a series of inverters for the domestic and industrial photovoltaic industry.

Ultrasonic

  • Ultrasonic Sensors
    Ultrasonic Sensors

In industrial applications, ultrasonic sensors are characterized by their reliability and outstanding versatility. Ultrasonic sensors can be used to solve even the most complex tasks involving object detection or level measurement with millimetre precision, because their measuring method works reliably under almost all conditions.

No other measuring method can be successfully put to use on such a wide scale and in so many different applications. The devices areextremely robust, making them suitable for even the toughest conditions. The sensor surface cleans itself through vibration, and that is not the only reason why the sensor is insensitive to dirt. The physical principle—the propagation of sound—works, with a few exceptions, in practically any environment.

The measuring method employed by ultrasonic sensors has been viewed as an excessively complex technology, and only used as a “last resort” ... as a solution for particularly difficult applications. Those times have long since passed!
Ultrasonic sensors have proven their reliability and endurance in virtually all industrial sectors.

These sectors include:

  • Mechanical engineering/machine tool
  • Food and beverage
  • Woodworking and furniture
  • Building materials
  • Agriculture
  • Construction
  • Pulp and paper
  • Material handling
  • Level measurement
  • Diffuse and Retroreflective Mode Sensors

    Diffuse and Retroreflective Mode Sensors

    Ultrasonic sensors are most commonly used in the diffuse mode. A single ultrasonic transducer is used as both emitter and receiver and is typically contained in the same housing as the evaluation electronics.

    To reliably detect difficult objects, the majority of our diffuse mode sensors can be converted to retroreflective operation via software parameterization. Some ultrasonic sensors are supplied as retroreflective sensors from the outset.

  • Ultrasonic Thru-Beam Sensors

    Thru-Beam Sensors

    Ultrasonic thru-beam sensors feature an extremely powerful acoustic beam. They offer a large detection range within compact housing dimensions. Unlike diffuse and retroreflective models, these sensors do not continuously switch between transmission and reception modes or wait for an echo signal to arrive. Thus, their response time is considerably faster, resulting in very high switching frequencies.

  • Double Sheet Sensors

    Double Sheet Sensors

    Double sheet sensors are ultrasonic thru-beam sensors that have been optimized specifically for sheet feed applications, including double sheet detection, label counting, and splice detection.

    Double sheet and double material sensors distinguish between empty gaps, one, and two layers of material, including paper, metals, wooden boards, and glass panes.

    When performing label detection tasks, the sensors can distinguish between the label backing and the base material.
