This inductive proximity sensor will detect the prescence of a metallic object within 5mm of the surface of the sensor. The detection distance may vary slightly depending on the shape, size, and type of metal the object is made of. It can detect through thin, non-metallic materials and has an LED indicator that turns on when the device is powered, and increases in brightness when an object is detected.

Connection

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:
