Turck shows Namur sensors with SIL2 certification and Atex approval for use in potentially explosive areas. The inductive proximity switches with terminal compartment can be connected vibration-proof via removable screw or spring-type terminals, which considerably facilitates replacement in case of service. The WDTC Namur sensors also offer maximum degrees of freedom and switching distances as a wash-down version.
By simply turning the cover, the user can choose between a straight or a 90 ° angled cable outlet. The cable is inserted into the terminal compartment cover using a standard M16 screw connection.
LEDs in the terminal compartment provide information on site about the switching status of the sensors. The monitoring function for wire break and short-circuit detection also helps to increase system availability. Even the most aggressive media cannot harm the V4A steel sensor housing. With protection classes IP68 and IP69K and a temperature range from -40 ° to +100 ° C, the sensors are also suitable for extremely harsh environments. The entire sensor with terminal compartment is FDA-compliant.
