Turck Australia have introduced their new family of robust inductive proximity sensors for use on mobile vehicle systems. The Mobile Equipment Sensor series is designed to detect the position of doors, ladders, outriggers, gates and booms, and delivers rugged sensing solutions for agriculture, construction, commercial and utility industry mobile equipment applications.
The sensors are available in five styles, M12, M18 and M30 barrel sensors, along with Q14 and Q20 rectangular versions, to easily install on a wide range of mobile vehicles. By incorporating advanced technology and enhanced electronics, the sensors provide an extended sensing range while resisting the high levels of EMC found with mobile vehicle electric systems.
The Mobile Equipment Sensor series is constructed of robust PBT housings and durable materials, such as stainless steel, to resist stones, salt spray and extreme shock and vibration. To ensure dependable operation in the broad range of environments, the sensors deliver IP 68 and IP 69k protection and a temperature range of -40° to 85° C. The sensor series also offers load dump compensation to withstand electrical pulses and provides reliable operation.
With quick-disconnect or potted-in cable connections, as well as optional mounting accessories, the sensor series is simply integrated into mobile vehicle systems. Optional pigtail versions with standard automotive connections are also available.
