Tubular Proximity Sensor

The Telemecanique XS6 auto-adaptable inductive proximity sensors

have a self-teach mechanism that simplifies setup. Available in 8, 12, 18, and 30-mm sizes, all but the 8-mm model has the self-teach mechanism. The fully shielded metal-body cylindrical sensors have an increased sensing range. Available options include both two-wire ac/dc, three-wire dc with normally open or normally closed outputs and cable or connectors versions, as well as pnp or npn models.
