8 mm Barrel Inductive Proximity Sensors with Increased Sensing Range

Typically used when space in the machine or plant is restricted, but you still need some freedom to make adjustments, the Turck series of inductive proximity sensors in M08 housing are now more versatile and even more user-friendly. The modular design concept of the sensors enables an extensive portfolio with increased sensing ranges and models from 40 to ultra-short 15 mm versions, which are available for the first time.

For Turck's new range of 8 mm barrel inductive proximity sensors, the technology of the ferrite core sensors has evolved, increasing the sensing range by up to 50 percent.

  • This allows flush mounted solutions to be offered with an extended sensing range of 3 mm (as well as with the conventional sensing range of 2 mm).
  • The non-flush sensors are likewise available with a 3 or 5 mm sensing range.
  • Newly developed sensor electronics make it possible for Turck to produce devices with an ultra-short 15 mm design.

Modular construction includes over 100 variants (enabling creativity in design)

  • Flush or non-flush mounting
  • Four thread lengths:  15, 22, 30 40 mm
  • M8 or M12 connector, 2 or 7 m cable length
  • Can be ordered with a 3- or 4-wire connection as NC or changeover contacts
  • Normally closed or complementary output function with PNP or NPN transistor stage

The sensors with a cable outlet are provided with a cable suitable for E-chain use, and a semi-transparent LED ring at the sensor end, which shows the sensing state from any viewing angle.

The sensors are IP67 rated, and have an operating temperature of -25 °C to 70 °C.
