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:
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.
