Dual-Wire DC Sensors incorporate Factor 1 technology.

Press Release Summary:

Used by machine engineers, 2-wire Uprox®+ sensors feature quick-disconnect capabilities and Uprox+ technology. Latter provides extended sensing ranges for all metal types and features integrated pre-damping protection function that reduces metal-free mounting area in applications. Able to be connected to existing cable network, products are weld field immune and available with Teflon® or Weldguard coating. Available body styles include M12, M18, M30, and CK40.

Two-Wire DC Sensors with Factor 1 Technology

Minneapolis, Minn. - TURCK's full line of 2-wire DC sensors now incorporate Uprox®+ technology and quick-disconnect capabilities, making it the first of its kind to include Factor 1 technology. Beyond providing sensing distances that far exceed ferrite core sensors, these sensors provide simple and space saving mounting, compared to mechanical switches.

Two-wire DC sensors are commonly used by machine engineers around the world. "Equipping a 2-wire sensor with Factor 1 technology expands its usefulness for those companies exporting to countries that typically use these devices, like Japan," says Suchi Deshpande, product specialist with TURCK's sensor division. "These sensors are particularly relevant in the automotive industry for aluminum frames."

The Uprox+ technology provides extended sensing ranges for all metal types, and it features an integrated pre-damping protection function to reduce the metal free mounting area in applications. This allows traditionally flush mounted sensors to be recessed by half a turn for increased mechanical protection. Non-flush mounted sensors may be embedded in metal up to the outer edge of the thread on barrel style sensors and on all four sides of rectangular style sensors, causing only a slight reduction in sensing distance.

The 2-wire Uprox+ sensors are available in M12, M18, M30 and CK40 body styles with cable and quick-disconnect options. This provides an easy replacement for mechanical switches, as the new sensor can be connected to the existing cable network. Like all TURCK Uprox+ sensors, the 2-wire DC sensors are weld field immune and available with Teflon or TURCK's Weldguard coating for further protection in welding applications.
