Proximity switchProximity Sensors

Proximity detectors are used in place of electromechanical limit switches where the application requires detection with :

  • proximity switchesVery high operating rates
  • High approach speeds
  • Excellent resistance to harsh industrial environments
  • Severe shock and vibration resistance
  • Non-contact detection requirements

An inductive proximity sensor will detect the presence of any object made of conductive material (providing it is within the sensing area).

A capacitive proximity sensor will detect conductive or non-conductive materials.

Both types of proximity switch have excellent ingress protection ratings.
