Proximity Sensors Directory

The Proximity Sensors Directory section from Process Controls and Instrumentation Buyers Guide is a comprehensive directory resource.

A proximity sensor is a sensor able to detect the presence of nearby objects without any physical contact.

A proximity sensor often emits an electromagnetic field or a beam of electromagnetic radiation (infrared, for instance), and looks for changes in the field or return signal. The object being sensed is often referred to as the proximity sensor's target. Different proximity sensor targets demand different sensors. For example, a capacitive photoelectric sensor might be suitable for a plastic target; an inductive proximity sensor always requires a metal target.

The Proximity Sensors Directory offers a wide variety of proximity sensors from industry leading manufacturers and suppliers.

Proximity Sensors

All switches shown on the left contain reed switch contacts and must be actuated by means of a magnet. Exceptions are the Vane-Switches, which are actuated by means of a ferrous vane, and the steel sensing Proximity Switches which operate in the presence of ferrous material.

KENCO Proximity Sensor

The KENCO Proximity Switch is installed into the divider block and is composed of a reed switch plus a magnet. When installed, the magnet rests against the divider block piston. The magnet is housed in the Proximity Switch body parallel to the reed switch. Each time the divider block pulses with a lubrication cycle, the piston moves the magnet, opening and closing the contacts of the reed switch.

Inductive Proximity Sensors

Pulsotronic provides an extensive assortment of inductive proximity switches. This sensor type principally is used for applications demanding great reliability, high switching speed as well as high switching frequencies and longevity. Our product range includes cylindrical sensors from G3 to M40 and square sensors in dimensions 5x5mm and 80x80mm.
