Magnetic proximity sensors in new short housings: greater precision
Waldkirch, November 2006 – A five-fold improvement in switching accuracy, a considerable reduction in hysteresis – the new magnetic proximity sensors in space-saving short housings offer numerous added or improved possibilities. Further highlights include enhanced electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and the possibility of implementing customer-specific needs by adapting the pulse length, switching point and hysteresis.

Based on a new chip platform for non-optical sensors, sleeve lengths of just 46 mm and 50 mm have been achieved for the magnetic proximity sensors in short housings. With M8, M12 and M18 diameters they correspond to the usual industrial mounting standard.

Fit for difficult operating conditions

This series has a considerably improved switching distance compared to conventional magnetic proximity sensors. Because of the corresponding reduction in hysteresis, magnets can now also be detected with hitherto unparalleled precision wherever maximum switching point accuracy is required. Magnetic proximity sensors are generally used for detecting magnets – also through non-magnetic materials. In the short form, too, they are particularly suitable for use in harsh conditions and are employed wherever inductive sensors come up against their technological limits.
