Turck expands capacitive sensor line with teachable options

Turck has added 18mm and 30mm capacitive barrel sensors with teachable
capabilities to its portfolio of capacitive sensors. The expanded product line comes
in two variants – teach by wire or teach by button.

The teach by button variant can be taught by a single press of a button,
saving valuable installation and configuration time. Both present and absent
media can be taught for a higher sensitivity teach.

The variant without a push button can be taught either by a teach
adapter or teach by wire (pin 5), which allows for a tamper-resistant
installation. Each variant is available in either PNP or NPN.

The 18mm housed version offers a 5mm sensing
range when flush mounted and a 7.5mm range when not. The 30mm housed version
offers a 10mm sensing range when flush mounted, with a sensing range of 15mm
when not flush mounted. The expanded offering can be switched between NC and
NO, and provides optical programming feedback through LEDs.
