Features

IP67G oil-resistant design for measurement in machine processing and other oily environments

The sensor head - including the connector and cable section - are IP67G and NEMA Type 13 compliant. This means that stable measurement is achieved even in harsh environments containing splashing water or oil. In order to improve robustness - a common problem with contact sensors - careful attention was paid to the structure of the sensor body. The design incorporates a high-strength linear ball bearing and seamless body for additional durability. In addition, the reduced weight of the spindle means minimal wear from friction and significantly improved durability. These design improvements reduce maintenance and equipment downtime.

Case Studies

  • The Problem:During assembly, if the diaphragm is not seated in the right place, the two halves will not seal properly creating a defective product. One half with a smaller diameter fits inside a larger one with the gasket acting as a cushion in between. During seating, a diaphragm can become “pinched” during the process sometimes creating tears and/or not allowing for the necessary tight seal required by the part.
