All-metal body for a variety of environments
The entire sensor, including the proximity switch head and housing, is made of 303 stainless steel for a robust design and high resistance to deformation, corrosion, and the spread of bacteria. These proximity switches are ideal for use in a variety of environments, including food and beverage manufacturing, chemical and metalworking industries.
food and drinks
The stainless steel 303 body minimizes the chance of germs spreading, and the one-piece design prevents cleaners or germicides from entering the proximity switch body.
Stainless steel 303 proximity switches are highly resistant to deformation and corrosion, making them ideal for chemical applications.
Proximity switches are highly shock and wear resistant in metalworking applications.
All-metal proximity switch heads provide shock and abrasion resistance
Metal proximity switch heads are highly shock and abrasion resistant, making proximity switches ideal for environments where the sensor head may be damaged or worn by workpieces or wire brushes.
High resistance to magnetic field noise from welding current
The PRFD(W) series all-metal inductive proximity switches are highly resistant to magnetic field noise generated by welding currents.
Reduce the risk of failure caused by aluminum shavings
These proximity switches are designed to minimize the risk of failure due to aluminum chips, providing high performance in environments with metal chips.
Oil Resistant (PVC) Cable
Robust oil-resistant cables allow the proximity switch to be installed in environments with hydraulic or cutting fluids.

proximity switch(English:proximity sensor) also calledproximity sensor, which is a device that can detect the presence of nearby objects without contactsensor.
Proximity sensors typically emitelectromagnetic fieldorElectromagnetic radiationbundle (e.g.infrared) and observeelectric fieldOr the change of the return signal to realize the function. The object that can be detected is called the target of the proximity switch. Different types of proximity switches have different goals, such asCapacitive Proximity SwitchorPhotoelectric switchpossible detectionplastictarget, andInductive proximityswitchCan only detect metal targets.
Sensors have a "nominal range" defined by their design, the maximum distance they can detect. Some sensors have the ability to adjust within the nominal range and to report the detection distance classification.
Therefore, the proximity switch has no mechanical parts, and there is no physical contact between the sensor and the object being sensed, resulting in high reliability and long service life.
Smartphones or similar mobile devices are often equipped with proximity switches. The device can wake up from sleep mode when a target is present within the nominal range. If the proximity sensor's target persists, the device can also ignore it and go back to sleep. A common design is that when using a smartphone to make a call, the proximity switch will detect the presence of the target and treat it as if it is placed in the ear, at which point the touchscreen will be temporarily turned off to avoid accidental operation.Proximity sensors are also used for vibration monitoring of some mechanical devices.
Proximity switches tuned to ultra-short distances can also be used as atact switch.
