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 (M5) inductive proximity sensor is made of stainless steel and it is flush mountable. Its nominal sensing distance is 0.8mm, it supports 1 normally closed PNP discrete output and it has a switching frequency of 5000Hz. It works in a temperature range of -25°C and +70°C, it is dustproof and waterproof (IP67). It is made of stainless steel. It measures 41mm (length) x 5mm (diameter). Three-wire, DC supply, 5V to 24V, NC function, PNP solid-state output . It is suitable for railway, mobile equipment, lifts and escalators, hoisting, material handling, machine tools, packaging, food and beverage industries, and robotics. This sensor is certified UL and CSA. 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.
