E2FM inductive proximity sensors - Zero tolerance on failure

Small things sometimes have a big impact. Proximity sensors may be small and relatively inexpensive, but malfunctions can create big problems for you and your operations like machine downtime, expensive delays and lost business.

That’s why you cannot take chances even with the small things. And neither do we! With our E2 inductive proximity sensor series, we take a zero-tolerance approach to failure. Which means we leave nothing to chance. We design the sensors to withstand the toughest conditions they’re ever likely to experience in operation.

We manufacture them using the most tightly controlled production processes – with stringent checks at every stage to guarantee unsurpassed quality and reliability. And we subject them to the most demanding tests available to the industry today. Providing objective proof that the E2 series is indeed what we claim – the natural choice when failure is not an option.

Stainless-steel for machine-tool toughness

For demanding environments in, for example, machine tool equipment, E2FM stainless-steel sensors are the perfect choice. Their tough all stainless-steel housing is highly resistant to impact, abrasion and aggressive chemicals and oils.

They also feature a sensing surface, which is 0.8 mm thick – 4 times thicker than that of ordinary stainless-steel proximity sensors – making them over 20 times tougher. We’ve proved this in continuous-impact tests in which ordinary stainless-steel sensors are penetrated after just 10,000 impacts, while the sensing surfaces of E2FM sensors are still intact even after 250,000 impacts. The sensors also feature a special ruggedized cable that’s resistant to welding spatter. So they will continue operating in the toughest workshop conditions long after other stainless-steel sensors have been consigned to the recycle bin.

Less frequent cleaning

E2FM sensors also require less frequent cleaning than ordinary sensors thanks to the use of optimised low-frequency pulse modulation circuitry that ignores the small metal chips that build up on the sensing surface during milling and cutting. So your process can continue running, interrupted only by your normal cleaning and maintenance cycles.

Features and benefits

Full body and sensing face SUS303 housing
Optimised frequency modulation for metal-chip immunity
Flame retardant cable for high protection against welding spatter damage

Chemical and Detergent Proof

The one-piece completely stainless steel housing of the sensing section withstands the following chemicals better:

• Sodium chloride 
• Gasoline 
• Dilute sodium hydroxide 
• Dilute hydrochloric acid 
• Mineral oil 
• Barium hydroxide 
   Any many others 

Note: Cannot be used for explosion-proof applications.
