Eaton’s E57 series of inductive proximity sensors are designed to enhance equipment performance in a wide range of industrial applications and are designed to provide detection, measurement, and analysis of mechanical processes to reduce unplanned downtime and maintain precise manufacturing operations. The three E57 inductive proximity sensor series feature a rugged stainless steel body, shock resistant front caps, impact absorbing potting compound and unmatched noise immunity to meet the needs of nearly any industrial application.

Additionally, the E57 sensors are engineered with inductive sensing technology for enhanced detection capabilities and simplified compatibility with most PLCs. The E57 models also feature 360-deg LED indicator lights for enhanced visibility and notification. The E57 series is available in standard configurations that meet IP67 and IP69K ratings, making them useful in harsh manufacturing environments. For application flexibility, the series provides the ability to operate at temperatures 15 degrees Celsius lower than standard sensor models and is available in a range of common diameter options including 12, 18, and 30mm. The sensors have been tested and verified to provide reliable sensing in applications with operating voltages from 10 to 30 V dc and temperature ranges of -25 to 70 C.

The E57P is engineered to withstand harsh operating environments and has been tested and verified to provide reliable sensing in applications with operating voltages from 10 to 48 Vdc and temperature ranges of -40 to 70 C. To further enhance application flexibility where limited space is an issue, the E57PS is engineered with the same features found in the E57PS series, but in a more compact package. The E57G of inductive proximity sensors are designed to provide basic, reliable sensing without sacrificing performance.
