c) Air barriers Fig. 8.1.1: Typical sensing distances of various pneumatic proximity sensors Supply pressure can vary, but is generally in the region of 0 – 800 kPa (0 – 8 bar).
The signal pressure generated depends on the supply pressure and the distance

Back pressure sensors
(Back pressure nozzles) The obstructing of an air jet drilling by means of an object to be detected leads to a
signal pressure build-up in the control port to the level of the supply pressure.

Reflex sensors The reflex type of sensor consists of an annular ring jet nozzle and a central receiver
If an object is moved towards the air escaping from the ring jet nozzle (...
