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.

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.)

Other

Always use plain washers to tighten the case and use a torque of 0.5 N.m or less.

See proximity sensor general usage precautions for other precautions.
