The PRCM series inductive proximity sensors feature solid sensing performance and excellent noise immunity with a specialized sensor IC developed by Autonics. The connector type sensors offer easier maintenance and wiring work. Available in various sizes and sensing distances, the standard cylindrical inductive sensors can be used in diverse applications requiring non-contact detection of metallic objects. The PRCM series is available in DC 2-wire, DC 3-wire, AC 2-wire types.

PRCML18-5DN comes as a cylindrical connector with sensing distance 0f 5mm, with sensing side diameter of M18., with DC-3 wire type (12-24 VDC), installation type shield(flush) with 18x18x1mm sensing surface.PRCML18-5DN from Autonics comes with the following properties:

  • Shortens the time of maintenance.
  • Improved noise resistance with dedicated IC.
  • Protection from reverse power polarity, surge, and over-current protection.
  • IP67 rated waterproof structure from IEC standards.
  • Replacer for micro and limit-switches.
