Description

Autonics inductive proximity sensor M12, PNP Normally Open PRL12-4DP

Long body, 4 mm sensing distance, Non-shield (non-flush)

 

The PRL12-4DP inductive proximity sensor features solid sensing performance and excellent noise immunity with a specialized sensor IC developed by Autonics. The standard inductive sensor can be used in diverse applications requiring non-contact detection of metallic objects. The PRL12-4DP comes in a round cylindrical shape, with a sensing side diameter of 12 mm and housing size of 63 mm length. This Non-flush type inductive proximity sensor Senses standard sensing target at maximum distance of 4 mm at ambient temperatures up to 70°C.

As a quick report, this inductive proximity sensor provides:

  • 4 mm sensing distance
  • 12 mm sensing side diameter
  • Improved noise resistance with specialized sensor IC
  • Long life cycle, high durability, reliable performance and simple operation
  • Reverse polarity protection
  • Non-shield (non-flush) installation
  • surge protection
  • over-current protection
  • IP67 protection structure based on IEC standards
  • Red LED status indicator
  • Reliable alternative to micro switches and limit switches

Body

The PRL12-4DP case is made of nickel-plated brass, its washer is made of nickel-plated iron, and the material of its sensing side is PBT.
Ingress protection of this proximity sensor is IP67 according to IEC standard.
This sensor has a red LED as the operation indicator on its body.

Connection

The PRL12-4DP inductive proximity sensor features cable type connection. This standard cable is made of PVC, and covers this sensor’s 3 wires.

Sensing specifications

The diameter of PRL12-4DP sensing side is 12 mm. The maximum distance that this proximity sensor can detect the standard sensing target in is 4 mm, this distance is called the sensing distance. The sensing distance differs based on the target object's material. This proximity sensor’s standard sensing target is a 12x12x1 mm piece made of iron.

Although almost no one talks about the setting distance of an inductive sensor, it should be announced that for this sensor, it is 0 to 2.8 mm. setting distance describes the distance in which the proximity sensor can detect the standard sensing target, even if the sensing distance is decreased due to temperature or voltage fluctuations.

Control output

The control output of this products is Normally Open PNP, which means that there would be no voltage on the output while the sensor is not actuated.

Temperature

There are limitations in temperature and humidity in which PRL12-4DP proximity sensor is used:

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

Environment resistance is rated at no freezing or condensation.

Industries / applications:

  • automated production lines
  • Part detection on industrial conveyor systems
