Inductive sensors - Sensors with long sensing range

  • Long sensing ranges up to 120 mm
  • Versions with connectors, terminals or connection cable
  • Versions in three- and four-wire technology
  • Type IM: Freely selectable sensing face with five positions; clearly visible corner LEDs
  • Versions in AC or DCV


Rectangular inductive sensors

Rectangular inductive sensors are especially suited for conveying applications thanks to their long sensing ranges. To meet the demands of harsh industrial environments, each model comes with a robust plastic housing with high protection rating. The sensing face of the IM type sensor (40 x 40 mm) can be rotated in five different positions for flexible mounting even under adverse installation conditions. The two corner LEDs are clearly visible in any mounted position.

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. The sensors operate just as reliably in these environments as in shearing or cutting applications.
