Cube and pancake style sensors are popular among automotive, metalworking, block and brick manufacturers, OEMs and manufacturers of heavy-duty trucks, trains and lifts.

Both the cube and pancake sensors feature the "auto-configure" output technology found on the dc voltage models. This feature, first introduced in the Eaton iProx tubular sensor, auto-detects if the sensor has been wired for NPN (sinking) or PNP (sourcing) and switches the senor to that mode without user intervention. This feature, combined with complementary outputs (1NO/1NC) found on both products, means users can replace four sensor models with one. Doing so allows distributors and machinery OEMs to reduce inventory, and resolve a wider array of challenging sensor applications.

Additional features include:

• Sensing ranges up to 100 mm for pancake and 40 mm for cube;
• Heavy-duty construction and temperature ratings down to -40 °C to handle harsh sensing environments;
• Bright power and output status LEDs;
• Micro- or mini-connector options; and
• Competitive pricing targeted at OEM customers.
