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.
If the attachment portion of the magnetic metal, should be withdrawn more than 3mm from the sensor detection surface mounting end face.
However I can be used within the flush in the case of non-magnetic metal.

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.)

Installation

Tighten the case with a torque of 1.2 N.m or less.

Other

See proximity sensor general usage precautions for other precautions.
