Inductive sensors
A line of inductive Factor 1 sensors offers the largest sensing distance for high-switching frequency sensors. These sensors provide a nearly identical sensing range for all metals.

The sensors are also extremely consistent across target materials and provide sensing ranges within extremely tight tolerances of published specifications. Sensing range remains consistent whether the sensors are mounted nonflush or flush in aluminum and carbon steel.

For use in operations with special voltage supplies, the Factor 1 line has a voltage range from 5 to 36 Vdc.  The line offers pnp, npn, normally open, normally closed, connector, and cable versions.
