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.
