Full Inox Chip-Immune inductive sensors: Immune to fragments of iron, aluminum, stainless steel, brass, copper or titanium

Machines for turning, milling, drilling or grinding metal will inevitably generate abrasion debris. For inductive sensors, which by their nature detect metal objects, this debris presents a difficult challenge. When sensors are covered with lubricant containing metal chips, there is a risk that they will supply incorrect signals to the control system. For these applications,…
