Inductive sensors of the I1 and I2 series have a large sensing area and particularly long sensing ranges. The sensing range can be easily set via potentiometer. This will prevent the sensor from detecting machine parts in the background.
In steelworks positions of slabs, metal sheets or blocks are detected at many places, e.g. on conveyor lines to the furnace inlet, at the cooling bed or at the individual processing stations. The sensors operate just as reliably in these environments as in shearing or cutting applications.
