Inductive Sensors

Proxitron inductive sensors are robust and sensitive at the same time. They are ideal for the non-contact detection of metal objects. Use our sensor selector to chose your inductive sensor.

A metal object which is located within the sensor range of the proximity switch, changes the electromagnetic field and creates a switching signal. Positions of metal objects or parts of machines can be detected safely and maintenance free. The key benefit of the proximity switch is that it is not sensitive to water and pollution.

Our sensors with extremely high sensing distance enable metal detection even where conventional standard sensors are overwhelmed. Furthermore, Proxi-Teach® technology offers safe operation under all conditions. PROXITRON inductive proximity sensors are therefore found in a wide range of applications in the steelmaking and metalworking industries and are preferred by many plant and machine builders "when the heat is on".

Depending on the sensor type, our selection of can sensors is predestined for the production and filling of cans, for counting metal cans on conveyor belts or for increasing the efficiency of a plant in the production of cans. Reliable control of the feeding of small parts, such as screws or nails, this is possible with our ring sensors. For application in chemically aggressive environment our sensors in PTFE housing are suitable.

Additionally to the great selection of industrial standard solutions we offer adapted variants or single individual solutions for complex applications. Our experience makes it possible to understand your request, identify possible problems and to solve them.
