Proximity Sensor Contains Dual Diagnostic Indicators

This embeddable proximity sensor offers a 50-mm (2.0") sensing range and dual diagnostic indicators, with the latter providing a constant display of operating status. The Q80 sensor is targeted for use in a broad range of automotive, material handling and conveyor applications. And even when fully embedded in steel, the Q80 sensor's long sensing range allows target objects to be positioned farther from the sensor, avoiding impact damage and interference from moving parts during the sensing process. The device can sense all types of metals at a single sensing range and its design permits fewer sensors to be kept in inventory and provides inherent weld-field immunity, eliminating false sensor triggering and assuring reliable operation. The Q80 proximity sensor comes in 3-wire DC models, with either normally-open or normally-closed outputs, a 4-wire DC model, and a 2-wire AC/DC model. The rugged one-piece plastic housing meets NEMA 1, 3, 4, 6, 13 and IEC IP67 standards, with a mounting bracket allowing the Q80 to be snapped directly onto a standard 35-mm DIN rail. The sensor's operating temperature range is -25°C to +70°C and its price begins at $170.
