Inductive Proximity switches are used to identify the presence of metal objects, speed measurments, position sensing, counting etc., without any physical contact with the objects. It enhances the durability of the switch and ensures maintenance free work. 

Inductive Proximity switch generates high frequency alternating field at the active face by the oscillator circuit. When any metal object is brought into the field it causes oscillation to stop. Hence the demodulated voltage feeding the trigger disappears.

   DC Inductive Proximity Switches:
   For DC switches the trigger operates rapidly when oscillation stops. This
   trigger switches the O/P, NPN/PNP transitor to drive an electronic circuit
   or relay. 

APPLICATIONS:

•     AUTOMOBILE INDUSTRIES
•     STEEL INDUSTRIES
•     PACKAGING INDUSTRIES
•     METAL HANDLING EQUIPMENT
•     PROCESS AUTOMATION
•     CNC / NC MACHINES
•     CONVEYOR EQUIPMENT ETC.,
   AC Inductive Proximity Switches:
   For AC switches a thyristor is triggered when oscillation stops. This thyristor
   i s connected in series with a bridge and this series combination is connected
   to the    AC load.

ORDERING CODE
FLUSH MOUNTING IN METAL
A proximity switch can be flush mounted in metal if it can be surrounded by metal up to the level of the active face, without changing its present characteristics. In order to avoid interference when mounting side by side, a spacing distance, corresponding to the diameter of the switch must be maintained.

NON FLUSH MOUNTING
A proximity switch can be flush mounted in metal if zone is required for maintaining the characteristic values of the switch. A clear zone of 3x the diameter of the sensing surface should be maintained.

EFFECTIVE SWITCHING DISTANCE
It is the switching distance when voltage and temperature can be at any value within the rating of the switch and this will be between 81 & 121% of switching distance.
OPERATIONAL DISTANCE
It is the distance at which the operation of the proximity switch, under stated temperature and voltage conditions is guaranteed within O and 81% of the nominal switching distance.
