Capacitive sensors
Capacitive Sensors Capacitive sensors are available in cylindrical and surface mount styles with choice of AC or DC supply. These sensors provide sensing ranges from 1 mm to 50 mm with some models having potentiometers. A common use is for liquid and granular product detection. NAMUR versions are available for use in hazardous areas.
 
Basic Series
Basic Series Pepperl+Fuchs Basic Series inductive sensors provide the ultimate combination of accuracy, durability and cost-effectiveness. Offered in a variety of housing styles, these sensors feature different connection and mounting options. The series is available in 2-, 3-, and 4-wire DC as well as 2-wire AC styles.
 
X-Series
X-Series Pepperl+Fuchs Basic Series inductive sensors provide the ultimate combination of accuracy, durability and cost-effectiveness. Offered in a variety of housing styles, these sensors feature different connection and mounting options. The series is available in 2-, 3-, and 4-wire DC as well as 2-wire AC styles.
 
Half Pint Subminiature DC Inductive Sensors
Half Pint Subminiature Pepperl+Fuchs features an extensive selection of subminiature, selfcontained inductive sensors. Cylindrical versions are available in diameters as small as 3 mm; surface-mount profiles are as low as 4 mm. Look for the Half Pint logo on our product data sheets.
 
Reduction Factor 1 Sensors
Reduction Factor 1 Sensors With operating ranges of 2 mm to 75 mm, Pepperl+Fuchs’ Reduction Factor 1 series reliably detects all metals at the same operating distance. The extremely durable housing is available in cylindrical and cube styles. Weld immune versions are offered for rugged production environments.
 
Pile Driver Series
Pile Driver Series With a solid, stainless steel housing, Pile Driver is designed for jobs where impact and abrasion are common. For welding environments, Pile Drivers have a tough, Black Armor coating that resists weld slag buildup and welding spatter.
 
Ring and Slot Inductive Sensors
Ring and Slot Inductive Pepperl+Fuchs offers ring sensors with through-hole diameters ranging from 10 mm to 100 mm. Typical applications include wire-breakage monitoring and part-ejection verification. Slot sensors are available in slot widths from 2 mm to 30 mm.
 
Limit Switch and Flat Pack Sensors
Limit Switch and Limit switch inductive sensors mount in the identical footprint as traditional mechanical limit switches. Their sensing ranges extend from 15 mm to 40 mm. Flat pack inductive products offer the longest available sensing ranges (50 mm). Both styles are available in multiple output configurations.
