Inductive sensors

Inductive sensors

Robust and sensitive at the same time

Inductive proximity switches are ideal for non-contact detection of metal objects. A metal object that is located in the sensing region of the proximity switch, the electromagnetic field is changed, leading to a switching signal. Positions of metal objects or machine parts can be safely andwearare detected. The great advantage of the inductive proximity switch is in its almost full immunityagainst water and dirt .

Our Proxi-Teach® Technology provides safe operation under all conditions. Sensors with extremely high switching distance allow metal detecting even where conventional standard sensors are overwhelmed. Inductive proximity switches Proxitron therefore find themselves in a variety of applications in the production of steel and metal processing industries and are used by many plant and machinery farmers preferred"when things get hot" . In addition to the wide range of industry standard solutions for complex applications, we offer customized versions up to the individual single solution . Our experience allow us to understand your problem, advance to identify and resolve potential problems.
