Proximity Sensors

Find and buy proximity sensors from verified suppliers on IndustrySearch, Australia’s industrial equipment market place. Proximity sensors detect the presence of nearby objects without any physical contact.

Things to consider when buying a proximity sensor:
  • Operating distance/sensing range - consider the nominal range, maximum operating distance and the reset distance.
  • Standard detectable object - the shape, size, and material which is used as the standard to check the performance of the Proximity Sensor. Detection distance of some sensors may differ according to the shape and material of an object.
  • Device technology/type - Examples are:
    • Capacitive - suitable for plastic targets
    • Inductive - requires metallic targets
    • Hall effect - used for proximity switching, positioning, speed detection, and current sensing applications.
    • Photoelectric- Suitable for plastic targets and are widely used in industrial manufacturing. They are through-beam, retro-reflective, and diffused.
    • Ultrasonic - target translucence or reflectivity do not affect these types of sensors as opposed to photoelectric sensors.
  • Electrical requirements - switch type (normally open or normally closed), interface (commonly 4-20mA)
  • Device housing material and shape - Standard casings include stainless steel, nickel-plated, crastin and polyamide. Shapes are cylindrical, rectangular, ring or slot type.
  • Choose for quality - Some popular brands include SICK, Pepperl+Fuchs and TransTech.

Inductive Proximity Sensors | SICK playlist_add Compare
Millions of inductive proximity sensors are currently in use in virtually all industries. They detect metal objects without contact, and are characterized by a long service life and extreme ruggedness.
Contact
Ultrasonic Proximity Sensors | SICK playlist_add Compare
Ultrasonic sensors utilise the properties of sound as sound provides us with information about our environment without physical contact, and over a range of distances.
Contact
Inductive Switch | P300 | 30mm playlist_add Compare
The P300 detects the presence of metallic objects in dangerous conditions such as in handling, warehousing, packaging, conveying, assembly, and processing.
