New 8mm Photoelectric, Inductive Proximity and Capacitive Proximity Sensors from AutomationDirect

March 2, 2021
New rectangular 8 mm by 16 mm inductive proximity sensors have been added to AutomationDirect’s sensor line-up in flush and non-flush mounting options, NO or NC output, and NPN or PNP logic.

AutomationDirect has added several small sensors to the proximity sensor lineup. New rectangular 8mm x 16mm inductive proximity sensors are available in flush and non-flush mounting options, NO or NC outputs as well as NPN or PNP logic.

The new 8mm round capacitive proximity sensors are able to detect materials other than metal, in a compact 8mm package. These capacitive proximity sensors have a potentiometer to adjust sensitivity and are available with an M8 quick-disconnect or 2m pigtail cable.

Also added are two new series of photoelectric sensors. Both the 8mm round and 8mm x 8mm x 4mm rectangular models are available in diffuse with background suppression, diffuse, retroreflective and through beam sensing styles. These can sense objects at up to 2.2 meters distance.

Starting at $65.00, all new sensors are CE and cULus approved. The 8mm proximity sensors have a lifetime warranty and the 8mm photoelectric sensors have a 2-year warranty.
