Weld-Compatible Prox Sensors

The Weld Select family of proximity sensors consists of Weld Field Immune sensors, SteelFace sensors, and related products designed to protect sensor connector components from damage in welding cells. Weld-Field-immune sensors are specifically designed to operate within electromagnetic fields generated in weld cells without false tripping. A one-piece, gun-drilled stainless-steel housing lets SteelFace sensors take multiple hits and still function properly. SlagMaster-coated sensors have a proprietary coating that allows the sensor to resist weld slag buildup, high heat, and mechanical damage. Weld Repel silicone jackets and wrap shed slag and protect cabling from ambient heat up to 500°C.
