Are you looking for tough construction, with up to 3x the standard sensing range?
Rockwell Automation announces enhancements to the Allen-Bradley 871TM Inductive Long Range Proximity Sensors family to include embedded IO-Link functionality on select 12 mm, 18 mm and 30 mm models. IO-Link allows sensors to easily integrate with The Connected Enterprise, delivering data from the sensor directly into a control system in a very cost-efficient and easy-to-use manner via an IO-Link Master and EtherNet/IP.
For welding environments and other applications where, large magnetic fields are present, the 871TM weld field immune sensors are offered in 8 mm, 12 mm and 18 mm models. These sensors provide electromagnetic protection up to 40 mT (400 gauss) and help avoid false triggering during the welding process.
The 871TM stainless steel sensors are designed to resist impact and abrasion in harsh or extremely tough environments. The corrosion resistant body is IP69K and 1200 psi wash-down rated and features full epoxy encapsulation for optimal performance in demanding applications. With two to three times greater sensing distance compared to standard models, the rugged 871TM sensors offer increased sensing distances for all metals, including copper and brass. Installation, setup and maintenance of these sensors is simplified through the use of the multi-purpose highly visible LED.
