Eaton Corp. introduces AccuProx, a new family of analog inductive proximity sensors with sensing ranges that are up to four times longer than those of typical shielded and unshielded tubular analog sensors. With long-range, tight repeat accuracy and linear outputs, AccuProx sensors are suited for applications that require precise position sensing and measurement, such as material handling or product positioning applications. Unlike a standard inductive sensor, which outputs an open or close signal based upon target presence or absence, an analog sensor outputs an electrical signal that varies proportionately to the position of a metal target within its sensing range. AccuProx sensors can also sense ferrous and non-ferrous metals (i.e., steel, aluminum, copper, etc.) and can be used to assure proper distance, size and thickness for various types of measurements.
AccuProx sensors are available with both current and voltage outputs on the same sensor. Both shielded and unshielded models are available in 12-, 18- and 30-millimeter tubular barrels with a variety of connection options.
