Turck has a new range of 8mm barrel inductive proximity sensors that feature a new-generation ferrite core that increases the sensing range by up to 50 percent.
As a result, flush-mounted devices are available with an extended sensing range of 3mm as well as with the conventional sensing range of 2mm. Similarly, the non-flush-mounting sensors are available with a choice of 3 or 5mm sensing range. And, thanks to newly developed sensor electronics, Turck is also offering devices with an ultra-short 15mm design.
The modular development approach of the sensor series has led to a wide range of variants that will help users to find the ideal 8mm barrel sensor for their application, without compromise. The sensors are available in 15, 22, 30 and 40mm lengths.
On the connectivity side, Turck is offering M8 or M12 connectors as well as sensors with a cable outlet, which in turn can be ordered with a 3- or 4-wire connection as normally closed or changeover contacts.
The sensors with cable outlets are provided with a cable suitable for energy-chain use, and feature a semi-transparent LED ring at the sensor end that shows the sensing state from any viewing angle. The sensors are IP67 rated, and have an operating temperature range of -25 to +70°C.
