Inductive Sensors

These are electronic transducers which generate an output signal when a metallic object (iron, aluminium, copper, brass) enters into their sensing area from any directions whithout coming into contact.
Inductive proximity switches are available in the cylindrical, rectangular version and different electrical and mechanical features. 
They are also available in according to Namur ATEX-IECEx.
All types available with cable or plug for connector.



Inductive Ring Sensors


Inductive ring sensors detect the presence of metal objects which pass through the area inside the ring, supplied in the diameters 5-12-15-22-25-30-44-63 and 100mm. They are suitable for detecting small metal parts which, as they pass through, generate output signals for external operation commands. They are also available in according to Namur ATEX-IECEx. A delay time of 100ms of the output signal allows these sensors to intercept the fast passage of the metal objects. Available in the cable or connector output version.



Metalface Inductive Sensors

These sensors are made entirely of AISI 316L stainless steel including also the sensitive part. Cylindrical threaded models M12-18-30 with IP68 and IP69K grade protection.
The operating distance is 3-5-10mm in the shielded version. Amplified models with NPN or PNP outputs. The supply voltage is 10-30Vdc. They are mainly used in harsh environments such as in the food and pharmaceutical industries where they can withstand frequent washing with high pressure water or on machines for metalworking.
They are resistant to impacts on the active surface.



Capacitive Sensors

These are electronic transducers which generate an output signal when any type of material (wood, metal, plastic, granular and powder products) enters their sensing area without coming into direct contact.
Capacitive proximity switches are available in the threaded cylindrical version with fixing brackets suitable for all different mechanical and electrical features. Types with instantaneous intervention or timing up to 15 min. are also supplied. Available in the cable or connector output version.



Photoelectric Sensors

Photoelectric sensors are light emission principle electronic transducers. They provide an output signal when an object comes into their sensing area. They are available in the cylindrical M18, square, fork and M18 fibre optic versions. They come in the direct and  polarized reflection, with reflector for infrared light or polarized red light, barrier with emitter and receiver versions.
All versions are provided with cable or M12 connection.



Fiber Optic Sensors

These sensors work electronically like any other photoelectric sensor, with the difference that the light emitted and received is transported by a fiber optic, which has a very small and variably shaped end and can be installed at a distance from the electronic measurement circuit or amplifier, made in stainless steel cylindrical housing AISI 303 M18x1 with fixing brackets. Different models are available according to the type of application. They can be 2 mt. standard and are covered by polyethylene and have either a smooth metallic end of 3mm. dia. or threaded M3-M4-M6.



These accessories reflect the light in the same direction from which it comes from, no matter what the angle of incidence can be. AECO reflectors are made of plastic (PMMA),  impact-resistant material, with temperature limits ranging from  -10°C up to +60°C. They are very performing when used with photoelectric sensors.
They are supplied in the parallelepiped and cylindrical shapes, in different dimensions as well as in the adhesive reflective tape version too which, however, is half performing compared to the rigid plastic models.


Magnetic Reed Sensors and Magnets

These are made of a reed switch with contacts protected by a glass bulb which contains inert glasses, this way mechanical and electrical deterioration are kept at minimum level. This is all contained in a plastic or metallic housing filled in with epoxidic resin which guarantees protection against humidity, vibrations and shocks. Available in the cylindrical and rectangular housing with open and changeover contacts. Magnets of various shapes and sizes are also available to activate these sensors.



Hall Effect Sensors and Magnets

These are electronic magnetic sensors that operate on the basis of the Hall effect. This means that they generate an output signal when their sensitive area is affected by a magnetic field produced by a permanent magnet. Just like inductive sensors, the output signal is very precise, repeatable and fast, but they offer the added benefit of increased sensitivity and reduced size Insensitive to shocks and vibrations, these sensors are supplied with M12x1 cylindrical case or parallelepiped case, pluggable or hard-wired connection option and indicator led, NPN/PNP output logic with N.O. or N.C. contact in the monostable version, and NPN+PNP output logic with N.O. contact in the bistable version. 


Magnetic Sensors for  Cylinders

This range of sensors is mainly used to detect the position of a magnetic piston element found in linear and rotary pneumatic cylinders. An Led is used to confirm that the sensor has changed status through the detection of the cylinders piston magnet.
The output information from the sensor is then used to signal further electrical functions as required. Our sensors are available in Reed and Magneto Resistive types and all are supplied with moulded cable. All models are available with cable or cable with M8 connector.



AECO connector range is available in the  M8, M12 and K versions. The M8 version comes with  3 models with  3-4 wire moulded in PUR cable. The M12 version comes with 4 models: two are 3-4 wire moulded in PVC cable and two are 4-pin terminal block. They can be supplied in the straight or 90° angle version, the latter  is also available with Led .
All M8 and M12 models are IP67 rating. Our range also includes the he K connectors that come with terminal block, they are included in the sensor and they are IP65 rating. 


Proxy Tester

Proxy Tester is a portable instrument created to satisfy the needs of both installers as well as retailers. It makes it possible to control correct functioning of any D.C. sensor or magnetic sensor even when lacking expensive sophisticated instrumentation (stable power generators, oscilloscopes). Consequently this reduces manitenance and repair time in an industrial automation plant where malfunction of sensor is often difficult to identify. Proxy Tester is powered by a battery and has a battery level indicator.


Amplifiers for Sensors

These devices, supplied in a plastic case with terminal block, are used for food, with a voltage stabilized and leveled at 12Vdc, inductive, capacitive, photoelectric cell transforming the output signal of the same in a changeover contact  5A at 240V of a relay in this device.
Are provided in the model ALNC (for NPN/PNP/NAMUR sensors), in the model ALN2 (for two NAMUR sensors) and in the model ALTP programmable delay on energization or de-energization (for NPN/PNP/NAMUR sensors).
