Capacitive Sensors

By Design Engineering Staff   


Balluff Global.CProx sensor family detect objects regardless of color, texture.

Balluff introduced its Global.CProx line of capacitive sensors that offer reverse polarity and short circuit protection with enhanced EMC noise immunity. The family includes a wide array of tubular M12, M18 and M30 sensors available with either M12 connectors or pre-wired cables.

The flush-mount versions of the capacitive sensors can detect objects up to 15mm away, regardless of color, texture or material. Non-flush mount versions are designed for level detection of bulk material or liquids either directly or through a plastic or glass container wall, with sensing distances up to 25 mm.

Other features include stainless steel or plastic housings; PNP and NPN versions with normally open or normally closed outputs; and a wide setting range for sensitivity.
