The proximity inductive sensors of the series Aeco SMF are built with a completely metallic housing, and in which also the sensitive part is made of metal and is an integral part of the housing itself. Cylindrical threaded models M12-M18-M30 are made entirely of AISI 316L stainless steel with IP68 and IP69K grade protection. The operating distance is respectively 3-5-10mm when in the shielded version, partially shielded models are also available with higher operating distances. Amplified 3-wire NO or NC models with NPN or PNP outputs and 4-wire NO or NC models with NPN+PNP outputs. The supply voltage 10-30Vdc.
They are mainly used in harsh environments such as in the food and pharmaceutical industries where they can withstand frequent washing with high pressure water or on machines for metalworking. They are resistant to shock and vibration and mechanically resistant to impacts on the active surface.
