The device features a three-fold switching distance. This provides longer ranges, better optimised installation locations, and greater positioning tolerances.
Metal objects can be detected at distances of between 3mm and 40mm, with mountings ranging from quasi-flush mounting of the M8 to non-flush installation of the M30. The sensors provide good results even with difficult to detect objects, including small or thin parts, wires, or bright metals.
A variety of types cover a range of individual requirements and installation situations. The devices are available with N.C. or N.O. functions, with NPN or PNP switching outputs, and cable or plug connections. The enclosure is rated IP67 and the sensors are resistant to impacts, vibrations, and increased ambient temperatures.
