Unformatted text preview: re fitted in metal fixtures, care should be taken that the characteristics of the proximity sensor are not be altered. Differentiation should be made here between the two different types of proximity sensors, i.e. flush-fitting and non-flush fitting proximity sensors. d d Diameter of proximity sensor (d) d F 4.3 Notes on application Free zone ≥3 x sn (F) Nominal switching distance (sn) Fig. 4.3.1: Flush-fitting inductive proximity sensors © Festo Didactic GmbH & Co. KG • FP 1110 53 4. Inductive proximity sensors Where proximity sensors are to be flush-fitted in metal, they must be installed in such a way as to ensure that the electromagnetic field is directed from the active zone forwards. In this way, the characteristics of the proximity sensor cannot be influenced by the method of assembly. In the case of series assembly of proximity sensors, a minimum gap corresponding to their respective diameter must be provided. This is essential in order to prevent the proximity sensors from influencing one another. The free zone in front of the proximity sensor should be...
