Proximity sensors detect the presence of metallic objects at close range (up to 1.5 inches typically). Ferrous metals allow the greatest distances to the sensor; other metals may reduce detection range. Low-cost, reliable sensors are available in an array of shapes and sizes for a wide range of applications.
Factor 1 Sensors, with a correction factor K=1, provide a constant sensing range without adjustment on all ferrous and non-ferrous metals.
Weld Slag Resistant harsh duty sensors have a PTFE material coating that prevents weld slag build-up and allows weld spatter to be wiped off easily.
