"Flat Pack" sensors are 35 x 55 x 15 mm, and the housing is for the conveying and material handling industries, or any application where space may be limited. The four available sensing principles include: Inductive Sensing, with ranges of 10 or 15 mm; Capacitive Sensing, with adjustable range from 3 to 25 mm, Photoelectric Diffuse Sensing, from 50 to 200 mm; or Through Beam Sensing, up to 5m. The sensors are constructed with impact-resistant polycarbonate, featuring ultrasonic welding to ensure an IP 67/NEMA 4X protection rating.
