The XS range is an offer of inductive proximity sensors for the detection of metal objects up to 60mm without physical contact. The oscillator produces an alternating electromagnetic field that exits the detection area of the sensor. Any metallic object penetrating this field is then detected. This general purpose threaded cylindrical (M18) inductive proximity sensor is made of metal and it is flush mountable. Its nominal sensing distance is 8mm, it supports 1 normally closed PNP discrete output and it has a switching frequency of 1000Hz. It works in a temperature range of -25°C and +70°C, it is dustproof, resistant to water jets (IP65), waterproof (IP67), resists high pressure and steam cleaning (IP69K). It is made of metal. It measures 50mm (length) x 18mm (diameter). It has 4 LED viewports for easy sensor status viewing, setup and troubleshooting. This inductive proximity sensor is particularly suitable for the use on a mobile equipment. This sensor is certified UL, CSA, and E2. It has a standard M12 connector, compatible with all existing market sensor cabling. It is E2, CSA, UL certified. The main advantage of the inductive detection offered by the sensors of the XS range is that there is no physical contact with the object to be detected.
