Motion Control Aventics proximity sensor

The Aventics ST6 proximity sensors are easily assembled by simply "dropping" them into the T-slot on the profile cylinder.

Aventics ST6 Proximity SensorsThe Aventics ST6 series proximity sensors include a wide range of versions with different line lengths and connections. Aventics also offers variants with ATEX certification and covers application temperatures from -40°C to 120°C with its cold and heat-resistant versions. The sensors are “cULus” certified, protected against polarity reversal, and short-circuit-resistant. The ST6 proximity sensors are simply “dropped” into the T-slot on the profile cylinder. Next, the captive eccentric screw is fixed with a quarter turn using a flat tip screwdriver or an Allen wrench. The screw also reliably keeps the sensor in place, even in the event of impact or vibration. Retaining ribs on the side of the sensor enable simple mounting, including in hard-to-reach locations or for overhead assembly.
