Two-wire proximity sensors save on installation and running costs
Posted on 30 Sep 2008
These chrome-plated, brass bodied sensors have a high frequency output and are available in M12, M18 and M30 sizes with switching speeds of 3kHz, 2kHz and 1kHz respectively. The M12 and M18 sizes are available with extended double sensing range that enables them to operate with greater clearances from targets to be detected thus eliminating the risk of collision damage.They are available in short as well as standard body lengths, in embeddable and non-embeddable formats with plug or cable connection and have a wide voltage range from 10 – 65VDC. They can switch over 100mA and are short-circuit, inverse polarity and overload protected.The use of state-of-the-art chip technology means that production costs are kept to a minimum despite being manufactured in Switzerland to the highest standards making them very competitively priced and with a long, reliable service life making them a highly cost-effective solution for all new machine and system designs.
