Our Inductive Proximity Sensors detect metal objects without touching them. This technology is used in applications where the metal object to be detected is within an inch or two of the sensor face. Our sensors can be used in light-duty packaging applications and the punishing environments on automotive welding equipment or the harsh washdowns in food processing plants.
Our Bulletin 871R Ring Inductive Proximity Sensors are specialty inductive sensors that determine the presence of metal objects passing through them. Ring sensors are available in 20, 50, and 100 mm ring diameter sizes with minimum ball (target) sizes that range from 6...8 mm.
Our Rectangular Inductive Proximity Sensors offer sensing ranges longer than those found in traditional cylindrical housings. Choose from our many styles of rectangular sensors for your welding applications and other environments where strong electromagnetic fields are present.
