Two-wire inductive proximity sensors now available

New from Powelectrics is a range of top performance two-wire DC inductive proximity sensors that will reduce the amount of cable and number of connection points in machine design by up to 33% compared to conventional three-wire products. This can represent major cost savings in complex, large process machinery.

Also with two-wire products the control load is connected in-line with the positive lead with the result that NPN and PNP 3-wire format devices are no longer required. This can significantly reduce the number of different sensors that customers need to stock to support production systems reducing inventory cost, particularly on large manufacturing plants such as in the automotive and the food and beverage industries.

Long range inductive proximity sensors with analogue output

New from Powelectrics is a non-embeddable version of the M30 range of long range inductive proximity sensors that have a sensing distance of zero to 40mm and come with an analogue output, the longest sensing distance of any analogue sensor. The Powelectrics M30 range, introduced in 2005, has four times the sensing distance of conventional sensors. Sealed to IP67, these new non-embeddable sensors will find use in demanding applications and provide a cost effective alternative to expensive digital or encoder position feedback systems. Typical applications will be on height position of machine tables, position datum alignment, transitional speed control, dancer-arm wire tension feedback controllers, reel stand accumulation checking and closing bridge realignment.

Microwave level switch

With the new MFC fill microwave level switch, Powelectrics can provide a new solution for monitoring high level alarms in containers. This microwave sensor reacts when the medium makes contact with the sensor tip. It is nearly independent on the type of medium, the container, or the sensor environment. Oils can be detected just as easily as water, lyes, or granulates.
