Minis Extend Sensing Distance

New entries to the vendor’s line of long-range mini inductive sensors are 4mm and 5mm unshielded versions. These new sensors set a new world standard in sensing distance for their size—out to 5mm—the equivalent range of an M18 sensor three to four times larger, according to the vendor.

The sensors are designed to allow the use of significantly smaller sensors that save space, but do not sacrifice sensing range. Principal applications center on small part detection where a high level of miniaturization is required for tight, difficult-to-install situations, such as robotic tooling and automated assembly systems for the semiconductor, medical and electronics industries.
