Durable Proximity Sensors for Non-Contact Sensing
c3controls introduces a full line of inductive and capacitive proximity sensors for non-contact presence sensing of metallic and non-metallic objects. The range features nickel-plated, stainless steel, and non-metallic cylindrical and rectangular housings rated Type 1, 2, 3, 3R, 4/4X, 6, 6P, 12 and 13, and IP67, making them ideal for the most severe industrial environments.Cylindrical housings are available in 4mm to 30mm diameters with shielded and unshielded constructions. For installation flexibility, sensors are available with a 2-meter cable or quick connect for fast installation and exchange. 2-, 3-, and 4-wire, 90 to 250V AC, 10 to 30V DC, and 24 to 240V AC/DC sensors with Normally Open, Normally Closed, complementary Normally Open and Normally Closed, and PNP or NPN outputs are easily integrated in almost every control system.c3controls proximity sensors offer high switching frequency, up to 3000Hz, maximizing production efficiency with targets moving at high speed. To prevent sensor damage, devices include short circuit, reverse polarity, false pulse, and transient noise protection. For troubleshooting and status monitoring the devices include LED indicators. The sensors are certified in accordance with UL and CSA standards and are CE marked for use and acceptance in global applications.
