New Long-Range Inductive Sensors

Saturday, August 01, 2009
 
Balluff Inc., Florence, KY, has introduced SteelFace extended-range economical sensors in PNP N/O and NPN N/O versions and in M8, M12 and M18 sizes, with PTFE-coated housings available to repel welding-slag buildup. The sensors feature one-piece stainless-steel housings for corrosion and impact protection, and reportedly provide as much as double the sensing range as standard inductive sensors. So, they can be placed farther a from targets, decreasing incidental impacts—the leading cause of sensor failures. The sensors are ideal for harsh environments. For example, when flush-mounted in steel, the M12 double-range sensors exhibit no loss of range, unlike some more expensive triple-range models, according to Balluff officials.
