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 ideally suited for use in applications that require detection of small and narrow metal targets that are otherwise difficult to detect with larger body sensors.
“In applications like semiconductor and electronics machinery, grippers, counting and sorting, and other applications that are implemented in a compact machine environment, detecting metallic targets smaller than 3mm can be a significant challenge. These new miniature 3 and 4 mm inductive proximity sensors are the solution,” says David Rubinski, Product Manager.
These new inductive proximity sensors boast an all-stainless steel housing, LED indication and a 2 meter PUR cable. They feature 3-wire, 10-30 VDC connectivity, have a maximum switching frequency of 1300 Hz, and are available with normally open NPN or PNP outputs.
Pepperl+Fuchs is a world leader in the design, manufacture and application of high quality factory and process automation products and services. Pepperl+Fuchs pioneered the development of proximity sensors 50 years ago, and has set the standard for innovation and quality ever since.
