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

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...
