Analog with linear voltage output • Cable output • General Features: These inductive proximity sensors provide an output current directly or reversely proportional to the distance between the sensing face and the metal target. The output current is also dependent by the material of the target, so they can be used not only to detect distances, displacements, vibrations and wavings but also to recognize the composition of metals and alloys. In the two wires configu- ration, they are reversal polarity and short circuit protected devices compliant to the 4-20 mA industrial standard. Use of the sensor: The output current flows through the external load RL generating a voltage (Vo) used to drive the input stage of the measuring instrument. The correct value of RL can be chosed accordingly to the values of power supply Vdc and the wanted Vout range as reported on the tables.
