The E2E series reportedly has solid potted internal circuitry to withstand shock, vibration and environmental resistance such as exposure to cutting oils and washdown locations. This product is widely used in automation and robotics applications. Perfect for detecting metal impurities for food and pharmaceutical industries. 

Features:

  • Sensing distance range 2 to 20 mm (0.08 to 0.79 inches)
  • Shielded and unshielded models
  • High visibility indicator
  • Prewired 2 m (6.6 ft) PVC cable with stripped leads or M12 connector
  • 1200 psi (83 bar) washdown rated IP67
  • Short barrel or standard lengths
  • Solid potted internal circuitry withstands shock and vibration
  • Wrench flats for easy installation
