Eaton Cutler-Hammer iProx 18 mm Proximity Sensors
The iProx Proximity Sensor represents the highest performance, most
versatile tubular inductive sensor offered by Eaton's electrical sector. By
utilizing an embedded microprocessor and exclusive SmartSense technology,
iProx can sense up to three times farther than typical sensors of its class,
while providing an unheard-of level of customization.
Both shielded and unshielded versions of iProx feature extended sensing
ranges. This allows the sensor to be mounted farther from the target,
thereby reducing the potential for target impacts and increasing the sensing
reliability of your application.
The iProx also includes a wide range of advanced features that can be
enabled via optional programming tools. Using the ProxView Windows-based
software package, an entirely custom sensor can be programmed to perfectly
fit an application.
Sensor characteristics, such as sensing range, can be customized down to the
nearest tenth of a millimeter. Outputs can be changed from NO to NC. The
iProx even features built-in timing delays and speed detection logic — no
PLC programming is necessary.
With extended sensing range, quality construction and the ability to adapt
to its environment, iProx is the ideal choice for even the most demanding
inductive sensing applications.
iProx Proximity Sensor Features:
- Reliably detect metal targets at up to three times
the range of conventional shielded or unshielded tubular inductive
- Auto-configure technology automatically detects a
sinking (NPN) or sourcing (PNP) connection and switches the sensor
accordingly, without any user intervention
- Exclusive SmartSense embedded microprocessor
technology allows for customizable range, band sensing, nuisance metal
rejection, timing delays and over/under speed detection
- Optional computer programming cable and Windows-based
ProxView configuration software makes it easy to customize sensors
- Quality construction using a stainless steel barrel,
360-degree dual-color LED indicator, Ryton impact-resistant face cap and
vibration-absorbing potting compound
- Withstands high electrical noise (up to 20 V/m)
