Flat/Flush Mount Sensor detects objects in confined spaces.
May 7, 2012 -
Supplied in 6 mm high Polyamid 12 plastic housing, CFDK 25 can be countersunk flush for integration into machines and facilities to detect objects in such confined spaces as low rise conveyors, automated handling equipment, and industrial machinery. Capacitive sensor can be directly attached to work surface or set into mounting frame that allows snap-in-place installation/removal. Fixed sensing distances from 2-15 mm supersede potentiometer and turn sensor into plug-and-play solution.

Flat/Flush Mount Sensor Detects Objects in Confined Spaces and Automated Lines
Sensor's 6 mm Height Allows Easy Installation Beneath Low Rise Conveyors
Southington, Conn. -- A new low-profile capacitive sensor from Baumer reliably detects objects in confined spaces such as low rise conveyors, automated handling equipment or industrial machinery. Designed with a very flat housing and versatile mounting frame, the CFDK 25 Capacitive Sensor requires much less space than photoelectric or ultrasonic sensors and can be countersunk flush for easy integration into machines and facilities.
Measuring just 6 mm high, the sensor can be directly attached to a work surface or set into an innovative mounting frame that allows easy, snap-in-place installation and removal. The frame can be installed with screws, cable ties, Velcro fasteners or glue, and allows the sensor to be easily removed and re-installed into another mounting frame with no tools required.
Five fixed sensing distances from 2 to 15 mm supersede a potentiometer and turn the CFDK 25 into a plug-and-play solution. To guarantee chemical resistance and extended life under demanding conditions, the housing of the CFDK 25 Capacitive Sensor is made of the robust plastic Polyamid 12.
The sensor is ideal for detecting wafers and PCBs on electronic production lines, for liquid level detection in laboratory processing, and for object detection in printing and packaging machines.
