TURCK has introduced the new Q10 compact inductive sensors - low cost, long range sensing devices that fit and function where standard size units do not. The combination of size, price and sensing range make the Q10 sensor useful for general industry applications.
This new one piece rectangular housing offers a sensing range of 8mm (.315") for cold-rolled steel as well as aluminium, stainless steel, brass and other non-ferrous materials.
This compact package measures 10mm (.394") high by 25mm (.984") wide by 42mm (1.654") deep. This fully embeddable sensor can be surrounded by metal on all four sides and still maintain a sensing range of 8mm without using the space required for a cylindrical sensor with equivalent sensing range.
Two LEDs, power and target present, mounted on the face of the sensor allow for good visibility even when fully embedded. The U-Prox technology sensors are weld field immune in both the on-state and off-state, giving improved protection in resistance welding applications. Micromax 1300 362 626.
