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.
Available in the cylindrical, rectangular and ring version and different electrical and mechanical features.
All types available with cable or plug for connector.



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.
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 M4-M5-M6.


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.


Ultrasonic Sensors

Ultrasonic sensors for detection of objects in well defined areas or for distance measurement such as in the case of tank levels. Available in measuring distances from 20cm to 5 metres. Available in M12, M18 hausing, parallelepiped housing and fork housing. Programmable by means of potentiometer or self-programmable M12 version. 
All models are available with analogue or digital outputs both in current as well as voltage and all models are supplied with M8 outlet connectors except the M12 housing version which is supplied with the M12 connector plug.


Hall Effect Magnetic Sensors

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 M12 case, pluggable or hard-wired connection option and indicator led, NPN/PNP output logic with normally open or closed contact in the monostable version, and NPN+PNP output logic with normally open 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.
