TURCK, represented in Australia by Micromax , has released the Uprox+ sensor line that will set a new standard for metal detection. Uprox+ sensors can detect materials such as iron, stainless steel, copper, aluminum and brass.
The multicoil system replaces the wound coil found in conventional ferrite core inductive sensors, providing up to 250% higher sensing distances. The sensors also have an integrated predamping protection function to reduce the metal free mounting area in applications. This allows traditionally 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.
All Uprox+ proximity sensors adhere to the present EN50082-2 standard as well as EN61000-4-6. This protects against conducted interference from frequency converters and other sources that produce a high level of EMI. The sensors are suitable for the automotive industry, machine engineering or for transport and handling applications. They can replace several conventional proximity sensors.
