Nominal sensing range
The switching distance of a proximity sensor at nominal supply voltage and nominal
temperature without compensation for production tolerances. sn Radial approach
Approach of the calibrating plate at a right angle and in the direction of the reference
axis of the active surface of the proximity sensor. 400

Maximum distance between the emitter and receiver of a through-beam sensor or
between the emitting and receiving device and the reflector of a retro-reflective
Real switching distance
The switching distance of an inductive proximity sensor measured at nominal
voltage and nominal temperature, taking into account manufacturing tolerance.
Maximum deviation from the nominal switching distance is ±10 %.
Switching point difference which occurs within 8 hrs at a temperature of 15 – 30 °C
and a nominal voltage deviation of ±5 %. sn Sensing range
