Turck Q08 uprox+ factor 1 sensor has an extended 8 mm range
Turck Q08 uprox+ factor 1 sensor, which is designed to detect steel, stainless steel, copper, brass and aluminum at the same rated sensing distance, offers an extended range of 8 mm, the company says.
With no reduction factor, uprox+ factor 1 sensors save significant time and labor costs over standard ferrite core proximity sensors , which must be adjusted and reinstalled to detect different metal types. Along with its extended range, the Q08 sensor features a compact rectangular housing that makes it well suited for applications where mounting space is limited.
The Q08 sensor family comes equipped with internal shielding that effectively eliminates pre-damping, allowing users to employ the sensor’s full switching distance without hindrance-even when the device is mounted on metal surfaces. An IP68 protection rating affords greater application flexibility, as the Q08 sensor can resist dust, debris and moisture ingress in challenging manufacturing environments. Two LEDs additionally provide clear visual indication of the sensor’s switching status. Turck provides uprox information .
