Proxinox inductive sensors

Built tough - aggressive media are no match for the stainless steel housing

Balluff stainless steel inductive sensorsProxinox sensors can resist the most extreme cleaning processes. In the food and beverage industry, chemical industry, and even in handling technology, inductive proximity switches are cleaned with increasingly aggressive methods. Whether they are faced with acids, alkalis, steam, foam cleaners, or high-pressure cleaning equipment, the technology of Proxinox stainless steel sensors is especially suited to heightened demands.

The most important features

  • No function display on the sensor itself:
    The hole for the LED is a potential risk spot for cleaning processes and a possible means of entry for bacteria. The function display is completely surrounded by the transparent plastic of the connector.
  • Stainless steel housing (material 1.4571):
    Material 1.4571 is the usual material for the food and beverage industry. The cable plug must be adapted in line with different cleaning agents and disinfectants.
  • Gold-plated contacts:
    The harsher installation conditions require gold-plated contacts to prevent plug corrosion.
  • Lasered or etched part number:
    Cleaning and disinfection processes can cause nameplates to come loose. Lasered or etched part numbers are resistant to such processes.
  • Additional O-ring seals for extreme demands:
    Temperature shocks triggered by cleaning and disinfecting cause the variable expansion of the steel housing and casting resin.
