Inductive sensors are nowadays indispensable for industrial applications. As compared to mechanical switches they offer almost ideal conditions: 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.
AC or AC/DC sensors are suitable for use in alternating current networks. For units with combined output stage, the sensor decides which output (DC or AC) switches depending on the voltage applied.
The high sensing ranges are guaranteed over the complete temperature range.
