Generally speaking, inductive sensors detect the presence of metal objects without contact. Many variations of inductive sensors are available depending on the application needs. Locon’s series of IP69k inductive sensors is a step above the rest. These sensors can be used in a range of applications, especially when conditions require exposure to harsh and challenging environments.
Here, we describe Locon’s new product line of IP69k inductive sensors and why it could be the perfect sensor for your application:
What is the IP69k Inductive Sensor?
The IP69k is the highest rating on the ingress protection (IP) scale, which classifies products based on their ability to withstand the intrusion of solids and liquids. The first number indicates how dustproof the sensor is on a scale of 0 to 6, while the second number shows how watertight it is on a scale of 0 to 9. The “k” at the end indicates that it has increased protection from high-pressure jets. As such, Locon’s IP69k inductive sensors afford the best protection against dust and water ingress, on the market.
In addition, specific models of the Locon IP69k series offer high temperature tolerances up to 230 degrees Celsius, high-pressure conditions up to 50 bar, and more.
The benefits of the IP69k
With such a durable, high-quality piece of equipment installed in your application, your manufacturing process will benefit in many ways, including the following:
- It will help you meet sanitation standards
