The Cylindrical Inductive Sensor for Industrial automation

The Autonics PRD series cylindrical inductive proximity sensors are available in standard and IO-Link communication models. The sensors feature long sensing distances and excellent noise immunity. Available in various sizes and sensing distances, the high performance cylindrical inductive sensors can be used in diverse applications requiring non-contact detection of metallic objects. The sensors also feature strain relief cables for improved flexural strength and durability.

Main Features

  • Operation indicator (red LED)
  • Communication indicator for IO-Link model (orange, green LED)
  • IP67 protection structure (IEC standard)
  • Strain relief cables: improved flexural strength of cable connecting component (except M8 models)
  • PTFE coating prevents malfunctions caused by welding spatter (spatter-resistant model)

Available in Various Sizes and Cable Types

This cylindrical inductive sensor from Autonics company is available in M8, M12, M18, M30 size models, and cable/cable connector types allowing installation in tight or limited spaces and various other user settings

Easy Maintenance with IO-Link Communication (IO-Link Model only)

IO-Link communication models feature detection of abnormalities in sensors such as over-access, unstable, disconnection detections for convenient maintenance. IO-Link Master is also required for IO-Link communication.

Ring Type Status Indicator

The 360° ring type operation indicator (orange LED) and stability indicators (green LED) allow users to quickly identify operation status from various angles.

PTFE Coating Prevents Malfunctions Due to Welding Spatter

The non-stick PTFE coating prevents welding spatter from sticking on to the sensors which minimizes the risk of malfunctions during welding applications.

Long Sensing Distance

The PRD series sensors feature longer sensing distance (1.5 to 2x) compared to Autonics PR series standard inductive sensors.

Strain Relief Cables

The PRD series features strain relief cables with improved flexural strength of cable connecting component, allowing higher durability when bending the cables.

Oil-Resistant (PVC) Cable

The robust oil-resistant cable allows the sensors to be installed in environments with hydraulic fluids or cutting fluids.

IP67 Protection Structure

The IP67 protection structure allows stable and error-free operation even in wet or dusty environments.
