Ultra-small Inductive Sensors

SuperShorty ultra-small inductive proximity sensors are designed for installation where other inductive sensors won’t fit.

Their low mass enables abrupt acceleration and deceleration on highly dynamic, fast-moving equipment without adding excessive inertial load. The sensors can be placed directly into a gripper finger without adversely impacting its size or weight. As rugged inductive sensors, they can survive in close proximity to industrial processes in which shock, vibration, and liquid or particulate contamination would cause other optical sensors to fail, says the vendor. The sensors are available in 6.5mm smooth and M08 threaded housings. Pre-wired cable models are available in two lengths: 10mm and a short 6mm version, while connectorized models are 18mm long. All have a nominal 1.5mm sensing range.
