TURCK, Inc: Inductive sensor for harsh washdown applications
Designed for applications that require frequent cleaning with chemicals found in food and beverage applications or where the sensor is exposed to wet environments, TURCK’s Q42 long-range inductive proximity sensor using FDA rated materials is available in a top-facing model and front-facing model.
The Q42 is an addition to the uprox+ family of factor one sensors that require no correction factor to detect any metal type.The sensor features an improved design with a durable stainless steel connector and PA12 thermoplastic housing that delivers resistance to chemicals and caustic cleaning agents, as well as shock from impact. Additionally, the upgraded housing materials are food-safe and meet FDA Regulation 21CFR 177, 1500(9) for the U.S. and FDA/EGVO 1935/2004 for the E.U. The Q42 features integrated predamping that gives the designer flexibility to partially recess the sensor into their design.
