FILED IN:  Controls  > Strategy
With no reduction factor, uprox+ factor 1 sensors save significant time and labor costs over standard ferrite core proximity sensors, which must be adjusted and reinstalled to detect different metal types. The sensor features a compact rectangular housing and internal shielding that eliminates pre-damping, allowing users to employ the sensor’s full switching distance without hindrance. An IP 68 protection rating provides flexibility, as the sensor resists dust, debris and moisture ingress in challenging manufacturing environments.
