Inductive proximity switches
Inductive proximity switches are used to scan the current status of automation components. They are offered by SCHUNK in versions IN and INK. The version IN is directly pluggable or has a molded cable with plug connector. The INK version is suitable for direct wiring. It has a molded cable with an open end.

Advantages – Your benefits

  • Mounting with brackets
    for easy and fast assembly
  • Version with LED display
    for control of the switching position directly at the sensor
  • Version with standard plug connector
    for fast and easy exchangeability of the extension cable
  • Very flexible cable in PUR version
    for a long service life
  • Proximity switches for flush mounting
    for minimal interfering contours in the application

Options and special information

  • Functional description
    With their oscillator coil, inductive proximity switches produce a high-frequency, alternating magnetic field. This field occurs on the active surface of the sensor. If a metal object enters the field, it draws energy from the magnetic field, thereby reducing the oscillation amplitude. This change is detected, and the sensor switches.
  • Signal output and switching type
    Depending on the size and design of the sensors, they are available with the signal outputs opener and closer, and in the switching modes PNP and NPN. Please contact us for assistance.
  • High protection class
    IP67 when plugged in, for use in clean or dusty environments or in case of contact with water. Operability in case of contact with other media (coolant, acids, bases, etc.) is often given, however cannot be guaranteed by SCHUNK.
