Turck, represented in Australia by Turck Australia , has recently announced the company’s BIM-UNR, BIM-UNT and Q-pak position sensors are now equipped with WeldGuard protection. This WeldGuard protection makes these proximity sensors impervious to weld slag and spatter often present in MIG and TIG welding environments.
TURCK’s proprietary WeldGuard protective material has been applied to the compact, rectangular face of the position sensors and protective sleeves are also available to protect the attached connector and cordset.
TURCK’s BIM-UNR and BIM-UNT line of magnetic cylinder position sensors are compact. The BIM-UNR position sensor has been designed to mount within C-groove cylinders, while the BIM-UNT mounts in T-groove, dovetail or tie rod pneumatic cylinders, all this without the need of additional tools or accessories.
Q-pak uprox+ factor 1 proximity sensors from Turck feature an extended sensing range of 8mm for all metal types, including copper, aluminium and stainless steel. The Q-pak series includes the Q08 sensor, which consumes a small footprint and is well suited for areas with limited mounting space. An IP 68 protection rating ensures the position sensors can be deployed in a wide variety of applications.
