Inductive proximity switches
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.
