4B BRAIME Components LTD have announced a new inductive sensor line designed to detect shaft speed, shaft position, gate position, or object presence. No contact is made between the sensor and the object being monitored. Maximum range of ferrous targets is 8 mm (5/16”) and for non-ferrous targets is 5 mm (6/16”), assuming a 20 mm (3/4”) diameter target. Smaller targets may be used but operating distances will be reduced. Three different sensor outputs are available; the P3003V10AI, P3004V10AI and P3003V34AI.
P3003V10AI and P3004V10AI sensors have a two-wire interface and have an internal transistor which either switches to open or closed state when target is present.
The P3003V34AI has an isolated transistor and the output is determined by the orientation of the positive and negative supply connections.
All units are fully encapsulated and come with a 3m cable lead. Two LED’s show power supply and input status. The sensor is ATEX and IECEx certified.
