TURCK, represented in Australia by Micromax , has released Q18 proximity sensor. It measures 18mm x 18mm x 29mm.
The one-piece rectangular housing has a non-embeddable sensing range of 5mm, designed for non-contact sensing of metal objects. These 3-wire dc, 10V dc - 30V dc sensors have integral circuitry that protects against short-circuit, overload, wire-break, and reverse polarity. They are also available with normally open NPN (sinking) or PNP (sourcing) outputs.
The sensor has a PBT plastic housing and operate in temperatures from -25°C to 70°C. It is rated NEMA 1, 3, 4, 6, 13 and IEC IP 67.
