|NEW COMPACT PROXIMITY SENSORS FEATURE LOW COST AND LONG SENSING RANGE|
|Minneapolis, MNDecember 22, 2001TURCK Inc. has introduced the new Q10 compact inductive sensorslow cost, long range sensing devices that fit and function where standard size units do not. The unique combination of size, price and sensing range make the Q10 sensor an excellent solution for general industry applications.
This new one piece rectangular housing offers a sensing range of 8 mm (.315") for cold rolled steel as well as aluminum, stainless steel, brass and other non-ferrous materials. This compact package measures 10 mm (.394") high by 25 mm (.984") wide by 42.0 mm (1.654") deep. This fully embeddable sensor can be surrounded by metal on all four sides and still maintain a sensing range of 8 mm without using the space required for a cylindrical sensor with equivalent sensing range. Two LEDs, power and target present, mounted on the face of the sensor allow for good visibility even when fully embedded. The U-Prox® technology sensors are Weld Field Immune in both the on-state and off-state, giving improved protection in resistance welding applications. The Q10 Q-pak Sensor list price starts at $105.00.
