Turck Inductive Sensors for Carbon Detection

Turck Inductive Sensors for Carbon Detection

Turck has developed the world’s first inductive sensors for detecting carbon fibers. The patent-pending sensor series detects both carbon fibers and pressed carbon parts. It is based on advanced uprox technology and therefore offers maximum switching distances and maximum installation flexibility – for manufacturers and suppliers of products such as cars, wind turbines or sporting equipment. They are less susceptible to contamination than optical or capacitive sensors while also being significantly more economical than ultrasonic sensors.

The sensors are now available in three initial designs: a threaded barrel version in M18 stainless steel housing with a rugged Duroplast front cap (BI7C) and as rectangular versions with a height of either 20 mm (BI20C) or 40 mm (NI40C). Protection class IP68 and the extended temperature range from 0 to 100 °C guarantee the long-term reliable use of the devices, which Turck offers as PNP changeover contacts with M12 connectors.

Key Features & Benefits
