Its small size is designed to provide flexibility in installation. Connections are made by cable, M8 three-pin or M8 four-pin quick disconnect and all versions are now IP67, IP69, and Ecolab approved. The 6K sensors are designed to offer reverse polarity protection and short circuit protection. Other features include miniature housing for mounting in space limited applications and position detection independent of material or surface characteristics. It also has flexible integration with invertible configurable outputs as well as measurement with high repeatability and resolution.
