Advanced Motion & Controls offers Pepperl+Fuchs’ innovative, high quality proximity switches and inductive proximity sensors.
Inductive proximity sensors are the preferred choice for the majority of applications requiring accurate, non-contact detection of metallic objects in machinery or automation equipment. As a pioneer and market leader, Pepperl+Fuchs offers innovative, high quality inductive sensors to meet the needs of the worldwide automation and process control markets.
Standard Inductive Sensor Product features:
Application Specific Inductive Sensor features:
Like inductive sensors, capacitive sensors function without physical contact with the target material. Capacitive sensors allow for the detection of both, conductive and non-conductive materials, but are most commonly used for sensing materials such as plastics, liquids, powders and granular materials.
In applications utilizing capacitive technology the sensitivity of capacitive proximity switches is dependent on the material characteristics of the target object. This material characteristic of the metal, plastic or liquid object will influence the sensing range and therefore the output detection point of the capacitive sensor. To allow for this variation in material characteristics Pepperl+Fuchs offers many models with adjustable sensitivity to allow for more flexibility in applying these sensors to your application.
These capacitive sensor products offer an alternative technology for use in applications where the use of inductive sensors may not be possible.
PEPPERL+FUCHS magnetic field sensor selection consists of the M12 housing style for traditional magnetic detection applications. Also offered is a non-contact, piston detection sensor for use with steel hydraulic cylinders. These magnetic sensors offer reliable piston magnet detection and are easily mounted, without the need for mounting slots or holes in the cylinder.
