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 x 8 x 4.7 millimeters) have been specially developed for applications in which they have to be fully embedded in metal, such as in pressing tools for example. These kinds of applications not only require robust sensors with large switching distances, but also as small housings as possible to reduce the amount of surrounding metal to be removed for the recesses.
The Q4,7 meets all the requirements mentioned with a two millimeter switching distance, a robust metal housing, a highly flexible two-meter connection cordset with an oil-resistant sheath and the possibility of a fully flush mounting. Special feature: Turck has managed to house the status LED in the active face so that this, in contrast to lateral LEDs, stays clearly visible even with a fully flush mounting.
