Turck Australia announces their analog+ proximity sensors have been enhanced to differentiate between varying types of metal during detection—independent of their distance from the sensor. Features of the proximity sensors include:

  • The analog proximity sensors are available in ring and flat housings
  • These material detection sensors provide sensing ranges up to 11 mm
  • The analog proximity sensors are well suited for stamping, die cutting and metal sorting applications, where different metal types must be readily and accurately detected
  •  With a wide operating temperature rating of -10 to 70°C, the analog proximity sensors are particularly useful in cold pilger rolling mills used for drawing seamless pipes
The analog+ proximity detection sensors use inductive coils whose RF fields are influenced differently for each metal type. The signal difference is then converted into a 0 to 10 VDC analog signal to signify which type of metal is being detected.
