Inductive sensors detect metal objects contactless and wear-free. For this, they use a high-frequency electromagnetic AC field that interacts with the target. Their strengths are the enormous durability, reliability, high switching frequencies and a long service life. Through a unique coil concept the uprox® sensors offer the highest switching distance, factor 1 for all metals and, right from the start, the highest operational safety through simple and safe installation.
There are as many application possibilities as sensor types: The sensors detect motion states at machines, open/ close position of grippers and pincers or are applied for parts inspection.
The entire program of inductive sensors comprises factor 1 sensors uprox® and uprox®+ as well as versions with conventional ferrite core technology. Nearly all types are flush as well as non- flush mountable. Moreover, the product portfolio offers very flexible non-flush mountable sensors for recessed or flush mounting.
Only extremely resistant housing materials are used. In order to comply with environmental conditions of individual applications
