Rectangular Inductive Proximity Switches Provide Greater Sensing Distance

New Series 509 C8 analog sensors with a compact rectangular housing of 8 × 8 × 50 mm are distinguished by their unusually large sensing range from 0 to 4 mm, their excellent temperature stability between -25°C and +70°C, and their outstanding repeat accuracy. The resolution of the Contrinex devices is virtually unlimited.The use of analog sensor technology is ideal for numerous applications such as the regulated approach to end positions at minimum cost, the realization of several switch points with a single device, monitoring concentricity, or the detection of vibrations. Sensors are available with output voltage ranges of 0 - 5 V or 0 - 10 V. As a result of the non-linearized transfer function, devices are inexpensive but nevertheless efficient.
