Sensing specifications

The PRL12-4DP inductive sensor features a 12mm diameter sensing side made of high-quality PBT material, offering precise detection capabilities. With a low cost and impressive performance, this sensor provides a maximum sensing distance of 4mm for standard sensing targets. It's important to note that the sensing distance may vary depending on the material of the target object. For this proximity sensor, the standard sensing target is a 12x12x1mm piece made of iron.

While the setting distance of an inductive sensor is often overlooked, it is crucial to mention that for the PRL12-4DP, the setting distance is within the range of 0 to 2.8mm. The setting distance refers to the proximity sensor's ability to detect the standard sensing target, even when the sensing distance is reduced due to factors such as temperature or voltage fluctuations. This ensures reliable and accurate detection performance in various operating conditions.

Control output

With a PNP NO control output, the PRL12-4DP sensor enables seamless integration into your existing control systems. Its reliable output ensures accurate and timely response, facilitating efficient automation processes.


Engineered to withstand extreme temperature variations, the PRL12-4DP operates flawlessly in ambient temperatures ranging from -25 to 70°C. Additionally, it offers a wide storage temperature range of -30 to 80°C, providing flexibility for storage and transportation.
