Inductive Proximity Sensors

Our Inductive Proximity Sensors detect metal objects without touching them. This technology is used in applications where the metal object to be detected is within an inch or two of the sensor face. Our sensors can be used in light-duty packaging applications and the punishing environments on automotive welding equipment or the harsh washdowns in food processing plants.

Cylinder Sensors

Cylinder Inductive Proximity Sensors

Our Cylinder Inductive Proximity Sensors are used for end-of-stroke sensing of pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders or for open/closed indication on power clamps and grippers.

Rectangular Sensors

Rectangular Inductive Proximity Sensors

Our Rectangular Inductive Proximity Sensors offer sensing ranges longer than those found in traditional cylindrical housings. Choose from our many styles of rectangular sensors for your welding applications and other environments where strong electromagnetic fields are present.

Ring & Slot Sensors

Bulletin 871R, 871S Ring & Slot Inductive Proximity Sensors

Our Bulletin 871R Ring and Bulletin 871S Slot Sensors are specialty inductive sensors that determine the presence of metal objects passing through them. Ring sensors are available in 12, 20, 50 and 100 mm ring diameter sizes with minimum ball (target) sizes ranging from 2.5 mm to 8.0 mm. Slot sensors are available in 30 mm slot gap.

Tubular Sensors

Tubular Inductive Proximity Sensors

Our Tubular Inductive Proximity Sensors are self-contained, solid-state switching devices. They sense the presence of metal objects-ferrous and nonferrous-without touching them.
