Capacitive sensors - M12 sensors for industrial automation

  • Robust stainless steel housing
  • Easy setting of the sensing range via potentiometer
  • High noise immunity
  • Long sensing ranges for more excess gain
  • Clearly visible indication of the switching status


Type M12

Capacitive sensors in M12 design detect metallic and non-metallic objects without contact. They can be easily adapted to the respective application by adjusting the sensing range using a potentiometer. Typical applications are in the paper, wood and glass industries. In a packaging system the sensors for example check the presence of the box or monitor it for complete contents. Using the standard M12 connector the sensors can be easily connected to a controller.
