Pepperl+Fuchs has expanded its family of short-barrel Pile Driver inductive proximity sensors by adding a new Remote Amplifi er version. Just 23mm in length, these shielded sensors are fully flush mountable and are ideally suited for space restricted applications in harsh environments such as those found in the welding and metal forming industries, among others.

These sensors can effectively operate in temperatures ranging from -25°C to 70°C.

They feature an 8mm diameter housing, offer a nominal sensing range of 1.5mm and can be wired either sinking or sourcing. Additionally, they come standard with a 100 per cent stainless steel sensing face and barrel, are Black Armor coated for weld spatter resistance, and offer a Micro-Quick disconnect method of connection.
