How High Pressure Proximity Sensors Can Help
Featured Product from Locon Sensor Systems, Inc.
Used in an array of industries, inductive sensors provide presence detection in problematic environments coping with dust, dirt, oil and other unwanted substances. The sensors feature a metal shell and special configurations that protect against debris, detect metals without contact and they’re short-circuit protected. Notably, the sensors can function in harsh environments, functioning reliably even when exposed to high-shock and vibration.
Locon Sensor Systems of Perrysburg, Ohio, sells high-pressure sensors made by Contrinex, Inc. These sensors are available with classic metal housing or a one-piece, stainless-steel construction, and they’re able to detect the smallest parts—ideal for piston-controlled applications where space is at a premium.
Customers purchase high pressure sensors from Locon Sensor Systems in large part because their models have extraordinary lifetime under pressure cycles and they can handle operating temperatures up to 100 degrees Celsius. Moreover, the high-pressure inductive sensors work well for continuous duty when you have a demanding pneumatic and/or hydraulic application with pressures up to 500 bar (1,000 bar peak pressure). In fact, high pressure sensors offer reliable function even when exposed to oil, making them a vital component to any business that makes, uses or tests hydraulic equipment.
