Analogue inductive proximity sensors offer extended sensing range

16 November 2014

Eaton's new E59 AccuProx series analogue inductive proximity sensors offer an extended linear sensing range of up to 25mm - up to four times greater distance than typical tubular inductive analogue sensors – without any loss in accuracy.

Unlike standard inductive sensors, the AccuProx analogue sensors supply an electrical signal that changes according to the position of the metal target in the sensing range. Thanks to the extended linear sensing range, the AccuProx sensors offer a high output resolution and repeatability in applications requiring precision.

This includes parts positioning, the measuring of distance, size and thickness, the checking of faulty locations or materials, general inspection and the detection of centre to centre variations, absolute angles and different metals. Two mounting options guarantee maximum flexibility for designing applications.

The robust stainless steel barrel with a shock-resistant front cap, a polycarbonate endbell, and the impact-absorbing potting compound ensure reliable sensor operation even in harsh production conditions.

The sensors are suitable for applications involving extreme ambient temperatures and vibrations or in high pressure wash-down environments. A high noise immunity of 20V/m also prevents any problems caused by electrical interference. The sensors are available with different current (4 – 20mA or 0 – 20mA) and voltage outputs (0 – 10V).
