The BES R04 is small and flat, for simple installation and integration.  The
short housing length enables integrated installation even in compact assemblies, while the flat housing form makes the required installation depth extremely small (≥ 5mm).

The lightweight sensor is useful for applications with high acceleration, and the fully-integrated electronics means no external amplifier is needed. The high switching frequency allows high cycle speeds.

The sensor’s high-grade brass housing with fully potted electronics and low mass helps guarantee performance even in mechanically demanding machines. The ceramic cover on the active surface also protects the sensor, and a protective silicone tubing cable version is also available.

A single M3 screw provides a secure hold for the sensor in just a few seconds.
