Machine tools / metal working

  • High reliability under wet conditions and with oils thanks to IP68/69K even at extreme temperature fluctuations from -40°C to 85°C, for example, when using coolants.
  • Workpieces are detected at the same sensing range, irrespective of the metal that is used
  • Small and space-saving designs

Mobile machines

  • High reliability under wet conditions and with oils thanks to IP68/69K even at extreme temperature fluctuations from -40°C to 85°C, for example, when mobile machines are used in different weather conditions during summer and winter
  • Resistant to shocks and vibrations, for example, motor vibration or shocks caused by uneven terrain or in the application range of the mobile machine

Food and hygienic applications

  • High reliability under wet conditions and with oils thanks to IP68/69K even at extreme temperature fluctuations from -40°C to 85°C, for example, for high-pressure cleaning
  • High switching frequencies for fast detection, for example, for the detection of many small metal hooks in the poultry slaughter house
  • Noise-immune sensor electronics protects against negative external influence, for example, caused by faulty, old or unearthed systems

Freeze-drying / shock-freezing systems

  • Electromagnetic field immunity even with extremely fluctuating magnetic fields
  • High reliability even at extreme and rapid temperature fluctuations from -40 °C to 85 °C

Deep-freeze facilities

  • Resistant to incorrect switching at low temperatures and to external influences, for example, caused by lighting systems

Automotive industry

  • Strong presence on release lists of the automotive manufacturers
  • Manufacturer-independent stock reduction possible since Kplus sensors provide a uniform sensing range on all metals and are suited for universal use

Body-in-white welding robots

  • Units are also available with non-stick coating as protection against sticking welding slag
  • Interference and electromagnetic field immune sensor technology prevents malfunction caused by welding
  • No deterioration caused by high temperatures in the proximity of the welding process

Conveying systems

  • High switching frequencies for fast detection, for example, when transporting many small metal components or workpiece carriers
  • Resistant to shocks and vibration, for example, collision or shocks in the system caused by the conveyed goods

Packaging lines

  • The skin effect of the sensors allows longer sensing ranges for thinner packaging, for example, for canned food or aluminium caps on plastic containers
  • The high switching frequencies that are possible allow fast material detection

All Kplus sensors at a glance

Today, inductive sensors have become indispensable for industrial applications. In comparison to mechanical switches, they offer ideal features: non-contact operation free from any wear and tear, high switching frequencies and accuracy. In addition, they are insensitive to vibration, dust and moisture. Inductive sensors detect all metals without contact.
