Bulletin 875C, 875C Tubular Capacitive Presence Sensors

Tubular Capacitive Sensors

Bulletin 875C and 875CP Tubular Capacitive Sensors have an adjustable sensing distance and are equipped with two status indicators to show power and output. 875C sensors are shielded and housed in a nickel-plated brass barrel. 875CP versions feature a plastic barrel and are unshielded models. Both versions meet NEMA 12 and IP67 (IEC 529) enclosure standards. Connection options include PVC cable, and micro and pico quick-disconnect.
