The Original: Pepperl+Fuchs Presents the New Generation of its Inductive Standard Sensors


May 31, 2021

More than 60 years ago, the invention of the proximity switch revolutionized the automation industry. The enormous potential of this technology is demonstrated not only by decades of use in a wide range of industries, but also by the latest development: with the next generation of inductive sensors, Pepperl+Fuchs is now taking “the Original” to a new evolutionary level and presents its customers a portfolio of 3-wire / 4-wire sensors in unparalleled variance.

A key benefit in developing the new portfolio was undoubtedly the company’s long experience and expertise as a technology leader in this field. In the past as well as today, Pepperl+Fuchs checks every detail of its sensors in elaborate tests – this ensures that all criteria of the in-house quality standards, which by far exceed customary market benchmarks, are met 100 %. In combination with a high level of expert knowledge and a profound application know-how built up over decades, customers find the specific advice here that provides exactly the technical solution that their application requires.

Technical Perfection in Every Detail

The company’s own high standards of technical perfection are reflected in numerous well thought-out features. The high-performance components are easy to install and can be seamlessly integrated into any application. Mechanical and electrical properties of the sensors have been optimized in every detail, such as a robust white bronze coating for increased chemical resistance and reliable corrosion protection, new end caps with LEDs visible all around, robust laser marking, high switching frequencies up to 6000 Hz and an extended temperature range from -40 up to 85°C. The result is exceptionally high-performing products that work absolutely reliably at all times: across the entire range of the specification and even under extreme conditions or in the extreme limit range, the performance of the new inductive-cylindrical standard sensors is continuously high.

Individuality Makes the Difference—in More than 200,000 Variants

When choosing the right sensor, numerous product characteristics play a role. The user can choose from a wide range of options that cover all common parameters and can be flexibly combined. These include, for example, various housing sizes (D6.5 / M8, M12, M18, M30), housing lengths from 15 mm to 70 mm, flush/non-flush with a switching distance of up to 25 mm. In total, more than 200,000 possible variants are available at short notice.

For very specific applications with individual requirements, the broad variety of options may not be sufficient. In this case, the exact customer requirements are determined in an intensive consultation, on the basis of which our specialists then develop a customized product—e.g. with individual labeling and packaging. Customized products can also be seamlessly integrated and are easy to install.
