Inductive Proximity Sensors Detect Small, Narrow Metal Targets
Mon, 05/17/2010 - 5:33am
Pepperl+Fuchs has expanded its family of Miniature 3 mm and 4 mm diameter Inductive Proximity Sensors. These inductive sensors are available with a smooth or threaded barrel and deliver a sensing range up to 1.0 mm. Their small size and longer sensing range make them appropriate for use in applications that require detection of small and narrow metal targets that are otherwise difficult to detect with larger body sensors. These sensors feature an all-stainless steel housing, LED indication, and a 2 m PUR cable. Additional features include three-wire, 10-30 VDC connectivity, a maximum switching frequency of 1300 Hz, and they are available with normally open NPN or PNP outputs.
