Description

Autonics proximity sensor M12, PNP NO PRD12-8DP

Non-shield (non-flush), Long distance, 8 mm Sensing distance

The Autonics proximity sensor PRD12-8DP features outstanding noise protection and stable sensing performance due to its specialized sensor IC developed by Autonics. This sensor comes in a round cylindrical shape, sensing distance of 8mm, sensing side diameter and housing size of m12 and Non-shield (non-flush) installation. The standard cylindrical inductive sensor can be used in diverse applications requiring non-contact detection of metallic objects.

As a quick report, this cylindrical inductive sensor provides:

  • 12 mm sensing side diameter
  • PNP Normally Open control output
  • 8 mm sensing distance
  • Non-shield (non-flush) installation
  • Improved noise resistance
  • Long life cycle and reliable
  • Reverse polarity, surge, and over-current protection
  • IP67 ingress protection structure according to IEC standards
  • Red LED status indicator
  • Alternative to micro switches and limit switches.

Body

This Autonics proximity sensor's case and nut parts are made of nickel-plated brass. The PRD12-8DP features IP67 ingress protection.

The red LED on its body acts as the process indicator.

Connection

The PRD12-8DP features standard cable type connection. This cable covers the sensor's 3 wires.

Sensing specifications

This inductive sensor's sensing side diameter is 12 mm. The maximum distance that this Autonics sensor can detect its standard sensing target, which is a 25x25x1 mm piece of iron, is 8 mm. This so-called sensing distance differs from one sensing target to another, based on their material, size, etc.

Although almost no one talks about the setting distance of an inductive sensor, it is a big deal to know this concept. Every sensor can detect its standard sensing target in a specified range, no matter what changes occur in ambient temperature, voltage fluctuations, etc. This distance, which is called the setting distance, is from 0 to 5.6 mm for this proximity sensor.

Control output

The PRD12-8DP features PNP Normally Open control output. PNP stands for Positive-Negative-Positive transistors.

Temperature

There are limitations in temperature and humidity in which PRD12-8DP proximity sensor is used:

  • Storage temperature: -30 … 80°C
  • Storage humidity: 35 to 95%RH
  • Ambient temperature: -25 … 70°C
  • Ambient humidity: 35 to 95%RH

Environment resistance is rated at no freezing or condensation.

Industries / applications

  • Detect trays in rubber press machines of shoe manufacturing lines
  • Detect the presence of carriers on conveyor belts during manufacturing of electrical parts
  • Automation system example of an elevator, escalator, and parking system
  • Detect and count the quantity of bottles during beverage packaging process
  • Detect the plates on the turntables and control the set/fixed position of the turntables
  • Limit switches to check the precise location of parts in automatic drilling machines

Check this product applications:

  1. Inductive sensors check and observe presence and status of devices of hydraulic presses
  2. Blind detection is used in manufactured-to-measure fixtures that examine threaded inserts in molded automotive components
