Rockwell Automation's Bulletin 871FM sensors’ 8 mm and 14 mm stainless-steel rectangular housings can be installed in space-critical applications.

rockwell automation proximity sensorThe Allen-Bradley Bulletin 871FM miniature, metal, flat-pack, inductive proximity sensors from Rockwell Automation are rugged, smart sensors built for harsh environments. Enabled with IO-Link technology, the Bulletin 871FM sensors deliver more comprehensive diagnostic and parameter data to the controller over EtherNet/IP from the IO-Link master module. The fully shielded, Bulletin 871FM sensors’ 8 mm (20x32x8 mm) and 14 mm (30x52x14 mm) stainless-steel rectangular housings can be installed in low-profile, space-critical applications. The compact design and all stainless-steel construction of these new proximity sensors is optimal for sensing small parts in demanding environments. Bulletin 871FM sensors are also available in welding models with sensing ranges up to 10 mm and Factor-1 equal sensing for different ferrous and nonferrous metals.
