December 26, 2008 - Tested to 50G for operation in high shock and vibration environments, IP69K-rated Mobile Equipment Sensors operate over -40 to +85C range and offer radiated field immunity to satisfy IEC and SAE mobile equipment standards. Load dump circuitry protects against power spikes during machine start-up, and heavy-gauge cut-proof PUR cables are unaffected by oil, grease, and other fluids. Sensors come in 12, 18, and 30 mm dia sizes with respective 4, 8, and 15 mm sensing ranges.

Pepperl+Fuchs' New Mobile Equipment Sensors Built to Overcome Mobile Equipment Sensing Challenges

Pepperl + Fuchs, Inc.
1600 Enterprise Parkway
Twinsburg, OH, 44087 2245

Press release date: December 13, 2008

TWINSBURG, OH - Pepperl+Fuchs introduces Mobile Equipment Sensors. These IP69K rated inductive proximity sensors are shock test rated to 50G for reliable operation in high shock and vibration environments, can operate in extreme cold (-40) and heat (+85C/+185F), and feature 10x more powerful radiated field immunity than standard sensors to satisfy the demanding performance criteria set forth in IEC and SAE mobile equipment standards. They are fully compatible with Deutsch, Weatherpack (Packard) and Amp/Tyco connectors.

Mobile Equipment sensors are available in 12, 18 and 30 mm diameters to deliver 4, 8 and 15mm sensing ranges, respectively. The extended sensing range of up to 15mm facilitates increased target-to-sensor separation, which significantly reduces accidental impacts to maximize uptime. Load dump circuitry protects the sensor against power spikes during machine start-up, which is particularly significant when the sensor is powered directly from a battery. Additionally, they feature heavy-gauge, cut-proof PUR cables that are unaffected by oil, grease and other fluids common to such applications.

Mobile Equipment sensors are specifically engineered to overcome the environmental challenges common to truck, bus, crane, lawn mowing, fork lift and other mobile equipment applications. Their ability to reliably operate in extreme temperatures also makes them well suited for use in nearly any outdoor environment, or in freezers where standard sensors with a typical -25C rating are unsuitable for use.

Pepperl+Fuchs is a world leader in the design, manufacture and application of high quality factory and process automation products and services. Pepperl+Fuchs pioneered the development of proximity sensors 50 years ago, and has set the standard for innovation and quality ever since.
