Expanded Capacitive Sensors with Teachable Options

Turck has expanded its portfolio of capacitive sensors, now offering 18mm and 30mm capacitive barrel sensors with teachable capabilities. The new offering comes in two variants – teach-by-wire or teach-by-button.

The teach-by-button variant can be taught by a single press of a button saving valuable installation and configuration time. Both present and absent media can be taught for a higher sensitivity teach. The variant without a push button can be taught either by a teach adapter or teach-by-wire (pin 5), which allows for a tamper-resistant installation. Each variant is available in either PNP or NPN.

The 18mm housed version offers a 5mm sensing range when flush mounted and a 7.5mm range when not flush mounted. The 30mm housed version offers a 10mm sensing range when flush mounted, with a sensing range of 15mm when not flush mounted.

The expanded offering can be switched between NC and NO, and provides optical programming feedback through LEDs.
