That is up to 2.5 times longer range than traditional inductive sensors, says the vendor, while the sensors’ 100% stainless steel housings deliver durability more than 20 times that of competitive brass and plastic housings. Black Armor coated weld-immune models are also available. “In the most demanding application environments, it’s good to withstand a punishing target impact, but reducing or altogether avoiding impacts is obviously better, and this has led to the popularity of many of today’s ‘extended range’ sensors,” says Product Manager Marcel Ulrich.  “But until now, sensor users have been faced with choosing between sensing distance or sensor durability. The X-Series Pile Driver changes that by delivering both industry-leading durability and sensing range.” X-Series Pile Drivers can detect all metals and are IP69k-rated to withstand high-pressure washdown cleaning.
