TURCK has released a range of miniature picoprox sensors, with sensing distances that exceed ferrite-core sensors.
The sensors feature stainless steel housing and weld field immunity.
The product includes extended sensing ranges for all metal types, and features an integrated pre-damping protection function to reduce metal free mounting area.
This allows flush mounted sensors to be recessed by half a turn for increased mechanical protection.
Non-flush mounted sensors may be embedded in metal up to the outer edge of the thread on barrel-style sensors, and on all four sides of rectangular style sensors, causing only a slight reduction in sensing distance. The new sensors incorporate 316 stainless steel housings, and are available with extended 2 mm sensing ranges for flush mount versions.
