Inductive proximity, position sensors designed for multiple applications

April 11, 2006

A line of small square and rectangular inductive proximity and position sensors from Baumer Electric is designed for tight-spaced robotic, conveyor, and material handling applications.

Ranging in size from 4-mm square to 20-mm rectangular, the low-profile sensors are available in heights from to in. The rectangular inductive sensor is available in on/off models that detect the presence of a ferrous object or variable-output models that report precise positioning data. Discrete sensors feature a red LED that indicates whether output is activated.

All sensors are available prewired with a permanent cable or with removable cables. The rectangular inductive line features operating ranges from 0.8 to 8.0 mm and resolutions to 0.001 mm, with switching rates from 0.5 to 5.0 kHz.
