FILED IN:  Controls  > Sensors

BIM-UNR sensors are enhanced with a combination mounting screw that allows users the flexibility of choosing a 3/16 in. (1.3 mm) Allen wrench or a flat-bladed screwdriver for sensor installation. This miniature sensor (2.9 x 4.6 x 18 mm) can be inserted into a C-groove from the top rather than from the side. The sensor's active sensing element is placed at the bottom of the groove to deliver reliable detection, particularly on short-stroke cylinders. Provides high immunity to EMC interference, in accordance with EN 60947-5-2.
