New RhinoTM Weld Immune Proximity Sensors

May 19, 2006

TWINSBURG, OH – Pepperl+Fuchs introduces two new RhinoTM style weld-immune inductive proximity sensors. Available in 20mm flush mountable and 40mm non-flush mount sensing ranges, these sensors feature a weld slag resistant sensing face and all-metal housing and mounting for maximum application durability. The new models compliment Pepperl+Fuchs’ line of non-weld field immune RhinoTM cube style plastic housing sensors.

These four-wire, 10-30VDC sensors are 40mmx40mm cube style and offer both N.O. and N.C. PNP outputs. They offer a five-way rotating head for installation flexibility and include two corner, high-visibility indicators for power and target status.

Pepperl+Fuchs is a world leader in the design, manufacture and application of high quality factory and process automation products and services. Pepperl+Fuchs pioneered the development of proximity sensors 45 years ago, and has set the standard for innovation and quality ever since.• Supply Voltage - 10-30 VDC • Load Current - 100 mA max. • Leakage Current (Off-State) - ? 0.5 mA • Voltage Drop At Il (Max.) - 3-15% (5% typical) • Standards - EN 60947-5-2 • Ambient Temperature - -13 ºF to +158 ºF (-25 ºC to +70 ºC)
