element14 introduces Omron cylindrical proximity sensors for industrial manufacturing solutions in Asia Pacific

Supplier News

Leading electronic components distributor element14 Pty Ltd (formerly Farnell) introduces the Omron E2A series of cylindrical proximity sensors designed for use in robotics and industrial equipment.  

The modular construction of Omron cylindrical proximity sensors allows a large range of flexible product options and customisation, while the sensors’ durability provides extra long life against the demands of daily use.  

Available in DC 3-wire and DC 2-wire models, Omron E2A series cylindrical proximity sensors enable safe mounting with a long sensing distance up to 30mm, up to twice that of conventional Omron sensors, helping to prevent problems such as the collision of workpieces.  

Omron’s strict manufacturing standards ensure that these genuine components available from element14 will deliver high standards of quality, performance and reliability.  

Key features of Omron E2A series cylindrical proximity sensors:  

  • Uses high-frequency oscillation to detect both ferrous and non-ferrous metal objects, and in capacitive models to detect non-metal objects
  • Resists heat, chemicals, and water better than rectangular sensors
  • IP67 and IP69k compliant for high protection in wet environments
  • Full range of standard sizes including M8, M12, M18 and M30
Customers purchasing Omron’s E2A series through element14 can also take advantage of the added value provided by its various application-specific technical micro-sites for robotics, sensing, instrumentation and measurement.

Omron’s full range of industrial automation products is available on element14.
