Germany, Essen – Uniform sensing range to detec all metals



Inductive Kplus sensors for factory automation with correction factor 1

One sensing range for all metals:


  • Uniform sensing range for the reliable detection of all metals.
  • Compact dimensions for use in the smallest of space.
  • Electromagnetic field immune sensor technology to prevent incorrect switching.
  • High-quality stainless steel housing.
  • High reliability thanks to protection rating from IP 65 / IP 69K


Constant correction factor

”Kplus“ sensors have the same sensing range for all types of metals. They are for example perfectly suited for the detection of aluminium, where conventional sensors show a considerably reduced sensing range. The high switching frequencies enable the monitoring of fast changing switching states. The resistant stainless steel sleeve allows reliable use in oil and coolant applications. The wide temperature range as well as the high protection ratings enable universal use of the new ”Kplus“ sensors.
