Altech Cylindrical sensors are available in diameters ranging from 8mm (.32 in.) to 30mm (1.18 in.) with sensing distances up to 15mm (0.59 in.). Most models feature nickel plated brass (BN) and stainless steel (SS). Both flush mount and non-flush mount sensors are available. Non-flush sensors have larger sensing distances than their flush mount counterparts. All Inductive sensors meet IP67 (NEMA1, 3, 4, 6, 12, 13) protection levels.

FLUSH MOUNT CYLINDRICAL SENSORS
Flush Mounted, sometimes called embedded or shielded sensors, have electromagnetic fields concentrated directly in front of the sensing heads and may be mounted directly onto metal mounting brackets or embedded directly into metal without causing a false output. Figure 8 (located on page 7) also illustrates that on Cylindrical Flush Mount sensors there should be at least 1 diameter of distance between adjacent sensors, and no non-target metal surfaces should be less than 3 times the sensing distance Sn directly across from the sensing head. Also, two directly opposite sensors mounted in metal should be greater than 6 times the sensing distance apart.

NON-FLUSH CYLINDRICAL SENSORS
Sometimes called non-embedded or non-shielded, non-flush sensors have electromagnetic fields with a wide sensing angle and are unshielded (no metal surrounding the sensing head). Care must be taken to insure that no non-target metal comes in near proximity to the sensing head. Distances are demonstrated in Figure 8. Adjacent sensors should be separated by at least 2 times the diameter. Non-target metal should be at least 3 times the sensing distance directly across from the sensing head. Two directly opposite sensors should be at least 6 times the sensing distance apart.
