Proximity sensors are the most common and affordable solution for no-touch object detection. The most commonly-used proximity sensor is the inductive type, which generates an electromagnetic field to sense metal objects passing close to its face. This is usually the easiest sensing technology to apply in applications where the metal object to be detected is within an inch or two of the sensor face.

Note that the standard detecting distance is based on a standard shape approaching the sensor in a standard way. The real detecting distance will vary depending on the shape, thickness and type of metal being detected and will in general be between 70 to 80% of the standard distance.

Comes packaged with

  • Mounting Hardware Kit


You can use a 12V sensor adapter to connect this sensor to your InterfaceKit or Hub. See the Connection & Compatibility tab for more details.

12V Sensor Adapter

This sensor requires a 12V power supply and outputs a 0-5V signal depending on wheter the sensor is triggered. For a simple way to provide 12 volts, you can use our 12V sensor adapter. It uses the 5V supply from your InterfaceKit or Hub and steps it up to 12V while simultaneously passing the 0-5V signal from the sensor into the Phidget cable.

To connect the sensor, connect the wires as follows:

Function 35231144
+12V Brown +12V
Ground Blue GND
Data Black ANLG
