Turck Q4.7 miniature sensor with visible LED
January 11, 2016 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Jan. 11, 2016 – Turck has added the Q4.7 series of rectangular inductive sensors to its range of miniature sensors.
The miniature sensors in the new design (16 mm x 8 mm x 4.7 mm) have been specially developed for applications in which they have to be fully embedded in metal, such as in the stamping and metal forming industry. These kinds of applications not only require robust sensors with large switching distances, but also very small housing to reduce the amount of surrounding metal to be removed for the recesses, says Turck. According to the company, the Q4.7 meets all the requirements mentioned with a 2-mm sensing range and a flexible 2-m meter connection cable with an oil-resistant sheath and flush-mounted capability. It houses the status LED in the active face so that it stays visible when fully flush mounted. The series has a temperature range from 0 C to 85 C Celsius and is IP67 rated.
