Application Specific. Different applications require different ultrasonic sensors. We design our processes to manufacture ultrasonic sensors by the thousands. It is that simple. Engineers and OEMs value our factory calibrations because once a product is selected they can move forward with their large-scale deployment without manually configuring each individual sensor.

    Featured Applications

  • People Detection
  • Remote Bin Measurement
