Proximity Sensors Feature IO-Link and Long Sensing Range

Industrial automation solutions provider Omron Automation Americas offers its E2EW Series metal face proximity sensors. They are designed to minimize downtime due to their durable construction and long sensing range.

"Manufacturers in the automotive industry are striving to make the most of the current trend towards electric vehicles and low fuel consumption by building lighter-weight vehicles and favoring aluminum over iron," said a company spokesperson. "As the prevalence of mixed production lines containing both iron and aluminum increases, the demand for same-sensing-distance proximity sensors with suitably long sensing ranges is also on the rise. The E2EW Series is designed to address this need. These highly durable, metal face proximity sensors feature the longest sensing range in their category to date, and have been optimized to withstand the harsh conditions of typical automotive welding processes with a fluororesin coating that provides increased spatter resistance."

The sensing range of the E2EW Series is approximately twice as long as previous models for ferrous metals and six times as long as previous models for aluminum, making them suitable for mixed-metal production lines. Since the sensing ranges for both metals are now equivalent, the sensors support a common design for position detection in such lines. They also reduce unexpected facility stoppages by minimizing false detection for unsteady objects.
