Turck Q10S Factor 1 inductive sensor

Turck uprox+ line of advanced factor 1 sensors has been expanded to include the Q10S sensor. [ Control Engineering tutorial video includes more about Turck inductive sensors .] The compact 10 x 10 x 28 mm inductive sensor can sense distances up to 5 mm, depending on mounting configuration. Q10S proximity sensors feature an active side face and detect all metals-including aluminum, copper and steel-at the same rated distance without reinstallation, saving considerable labor costs over traditional ferrite core proximity sensors. This application flexibility makes Q10S sensors suitable for a broad range of industries, such as material handling, automated assembly, conveying, sorting, product positioning and industrial robotics. Along with the extended range, Q10S sensors provide an integrated pre-damping function for mounting on metal or flush-mounted, with metal on four sides, without a performance reduction. An intermediate metal plate allows the sensors to be mounted beside one another without interference. Internal electronics also make the sensors particularly resistant to electromagnetic interference (EMI), and they provide an IP68 protection rating.

Turck Inc. is at booth 615 at Design & Manufacturing Midwest , Sept. 22-24, 2009, Rosemont, IL.
