Inductive Proximity Sensors suit welding applications.

Factor 1(TM) Sensors incorporate multi-coil design that enables them to sense both ferrous and non-ferrous metals at same distance. They are inherently weld field-immune to 100 kA/m, so they are unaffected by high levels of magnetic interference from transformers, motors, drives, or welders. Teflon® coating on housing and end cap helps protect sensors from weld slag and weld flash. Series...

Laser Sensor measures distances or objects up to 6 m.

Time-of-flight sensor, Model BOD 63M bounces Class II laser beam off objects to determine distance or length by measuring amount of time light takes to reflect back to sensor. Resolution is constant across distance beam travels, allowing it to detect objects as small as 1 mm, regardless of target's reflective properties. Models are available with one PNP or NPN output, alarm output, and one 0-10...

Analog Inductive Prox Sensors monitor moving targets.
Sensors, Monitors & Transducers

Analog Inductive Prox Sensors monitor moving targets.

Ultralinear(TM) inductive proximity sensors utilize linear analog feedback signal that is proportional to target distance from sensor face and provides resolution down to 1.5 microns. Triple-setpoint models employ onboard microprocessor that allows teach-in of up to 3 output on-zones. Linearity/temperature-compensation and calibration ASICs enable repeatability of less than 3% and temperature...

Sensors come in standard 50 x 50 mm block style.

S60 compact photoelectric sensors are direct replacements for sensors currently available only in non-standard formats and housings. Sensors are equipped with M12 connector that can be rotated in 90° arc so sensor can be mounted in straight and right angle positions relative to optic axis. Available modes of sensing are standard potentiometer, advanced pushbutton, and laser.
