Model MDS-F4U/MDS-F4 Proximity sensor

Application

  • Positioning of the processing machines
  • Position detection of the moving table and metal pallets
  • There is no space, the magnetic detection of a narrow place

Features

  • Small proximity sensor with a detection surface of 12 mm and a detection distance of 4 mm.
  • Simple installation with a single M3 screw or the installation bracket that saves space (sold separately).
  • Molded type that can be used safely even in places where water may splash.

International Standards

  • Our products do not have overseas safety regulations such as CE mark, UL standard, EN standard etc.
  • Products is compliant to the RoHS directive.

Usage precautions

Influence of surrounding metal

If there are metal objects around the proximity sensor, leave at least the space indicated in the figure below between them and the sensor.

  • MDS-F4
    MDS-F4_en06

Mutual interference

If you use two or more of the same product, separate them at least by the distances shown in the figure below to prevent reciprocal interference. (Sensors with a different frequency are indicated with a B after the model name.)
