QP08 is called the youngest member of the ferrite core "Uprox +" family by Turck, Like all Uprox + models, the compact Faktor 1 sensor offers high EMC and magnetic field strength as well as maximum switching distances to all metals. Especially in applications that require little space for installation - for example in the assembly and handling industry or in packaging machines - the non-flush sensor in the plastic housing guarantees a high time and cost savings during assembly and service.
Because aluminum is the preferred target material in these areas, the Faktor 1 sensor achieves up to 300% higher switching distances than conventional sensors.
The QP08 offers maximum installation clearance, not only because of its small and compact case design (32 x 20 x 8 mm) but also because of its low free zones, a switching distance of 10 mm and the ability to mount the sensor directly on metal. In addition, the holes are compatible with all Q08 and similar designs, allowing for quick and uncomplicated replacement of traditional sensor types. Large, curved LEDs on the sensor indicate to the user the operational readiness as well as the current switching status. Thanks to directly overmolded electronics, the IP67 compact proximity switch is also insensitive to dirt and moisture.
