All-metals Detection at 5mm

The compact Q10S proximity sensor is the latest addition to the vendor’s line of advanced factor 1 sensors.

At a size of 10x10x28mm, it can achieve sensing distances of up to 5mm, depending on mounting configuration. The sensors feature an active side face and detect all metals—including aluminum, copper and steel—at the same rated distance without requiring reinstallation, saving labor costs over traditional ferrite-core proximity sensors. Q10S sensors provide an integrated pre-damping function that allows them to be mounted directly on metal or flush-mounted, with metal present on four sides, without a reduction in performance. With an intermediate metal plate, the IP68-rated sensors can even be mounted directly beside one another without causing interference, says the vendor.
