Turck Eurofast M12 NAMUR Junction Boxes
NAMUR sensors are 2-wire sensing devices used with switching amplifiers. Because of the small amount of energy needed to
operate NAMUR sensors, they can be used in intrinsically safe applications.
The operation of this sensor is similar to that of a variable resistor with a change in impedance as a target approaches the sensor.
When no metal is being sensed, the inductive sensor is in a low impedance state and draws a current of more than 2.2 mA. When
a metal target enters the high-frequency field radiated from the sensor head, the impedance increases as the target approaches.
