Presence Sensing Devices

Our Presence Sensing Devices detect the distance, absence, or presence of an object. We offer a wide range of sensing devices to solve your application needs.

Capacitive Proximity Sensors

Capacitive Proximity Sensors

Capacitive Proximity Sensors can detect nonmetal solids and liquids in addition to standard metal targets. They can even sense the presence of some targets through certain other materials, making them an ideal choice in some applications where other sensing technologies simply will not work.

Inductive Proximity Sensors

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.

Photoelectric Sensors

Photoelectric Sensors

Photoelectric sensors use a beam of light to detect the presence or absence of an object. This technology is an ideal alternative to inductive proximity sensors when you require long sensing distances or when the item you want to sense is non-metal. Our photoelectric sensors satisfy applications found in many industries, such as material handling, packaging, food processing, and transportation. For your specialized applications that require a non-standard connector or cable, we can customize the sensor connections.

Ultrasonic Sensors

Ultrasonic Sensors

Ultrasonic Sensors are self-contained solid-state devices designed for non-contact sensing of solid and liquid objects. For many applications, such as monitoring the level of water in a tank, ultrasonic technology lets a single device to do a job that would otherwise require multiple sensors. Our sensors are available in several sensing ranges and styles with either an analog or discrete output depending on the model.
