The sensor head, including the connector and cable section, complies with two standards - NEMA Type 13 and IP67G. The sensor head can be mounted almost anywhere, even in environments with splashing water or oil.
Both the sensor head and connector comply with NEMA Type 13/IP67G. Extremely oil-resistant PUR (polyurethane) is used for the GT2-sensor cable to reduce the risk of oil penetration.
The sensor body is cast in one piece for seamless outer construction. Corrosion from water and oil is reduced due to the fully enclosed structure.
NEMA (National Electrical Manufactures Association) specifies the classification and description of enclosures for electrical equipment. The classification is represented as the "Type", and NEMA Type 13 is designed to provide a degree of protection against the ingress of oil.
IP67G represents the enclosure rating for electronic devices as defined by the JIS (Japanese Industrial Standards). IP67G represents "IP67" as defined by the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) with "G" added for its oil resistance.
A detecting durability of 100 million cycles has been achieved by
using new high-strength linear ball bearings in the spindle.
This can greatly reduce maintenance costs and replacement efforts.
The all stainless steel construction of the spindle structure (shaft & bearings) reduced the weight of the GT2. Through these weight savings, wear due to friction inside the spindle has been minimized. This has dramatically increased endurance.
The cable between the relay connector and amplifier unit uses a flexible free-cut robot cable that withstands continuous bending. This allows the sensor to be installed on moving equipment. A detachable relay connector system is also used. This can greatly reduce replacement work during maintenance.
