Datalogic inductive and capacitive proximity offers a reliable detection where photoelectric is not applicable. Datasensor inductive sensors are used for metal parts at close distance, wheras Datasensor capacitive sensors are suggested for any material inside opaque containers. Datalogic inductive proximity sensors generate a magnetic field from their detection faces. Whenever a detectable object moves into the sensor’s field of detection, Eddy currents build up in the target and dampen the sensor’s magnetic field. This effect triggers the sensor’s output. Since a current in the target is needed for detection, inductive proximity sensors are uniquely suited for detection of all types of metals.

Datalogic Basic Inductive Proximity Sensors Distributors
Basic

Datasensor inductive proximity sensors belonging to the Basic line were made in the classic cylindrical nickel-plated brass, with diameters ranging from 6.5 to 30 mm. They can detect metal objects from 1.5 mm to 20 mm apart and are available with either a cable or with M8 or M12 standard industrial connectors. Datalogic inductive proximity sensors generate a magnetic field from their detection faces. Whenever a detectable object moves into the sensor's field of detection, Eddy currents build up in the target and dampen the sensor's magnetic field. This effect triggers the sensor's output.

Datalogic Inductive AC Inductive Proximity Sensors Distributors
Inductive AC

Datasensor inductive sensors of the Inductive AC line are used as control devices for alternating current loads such as relays, contactors or solenoid valves. The solid-state output allows the use of proximity switches directly on the line in series with a proper load. These Datalogic proximity switches admit a supply voltage between 20-250 Vac. Available with a diameter of 12, 18 or 30 mm with M12 3-pole connector connected to ground.

Datalogic Metal Face Inductive Proximity Sensors Distributors
Metal Face

Datasensor inductive proximity sensors belonging to the Metal Face line were made mainly for applications in extreme environments and cannot be solved with standard formats. Thanks to their stainless steel active face and the sturdy housing, they are able to withstand the shocks and the aggressive action of detergents and solvents used in environments subject to frequent high-pressure washing. Datalogic versions are available with a diameter of 12 or 18 mm with M12 standard connector.

Datalogic NAMUR Inductive Proximity Sensors Distributors
NAMUR

Datasensor inductive sensors of the NAMUR line have values of voltage and current maintained at a low level so that it can be used in potentially explosive environments (such as "intrinsic" of protection). The function of limiting power is realized in the respective device and must be provided through an isolation amplifier suitable. Datalogic versions are available in 12, 18 o 30 mm in diameter, with outputs cable or with standard M12 connector.

Datalogic Square Inductive Proximity Sensors Distributors
Square

Datasensor Inductive sensors of the 8x8 Square line are made in a rectangular container 8x8 mm, available in version with cable or M8 connector, for a different and easier mounting in a sturdy nickel-plated brass housing. Datalogic Inductive sensors of the 40x40 Square line are made in a rectangular container in plastic PBT of dimensions 40x40 mm.
