How to Align the Sensing Face on the Inductive Sensor VariKont
The inductive sensors of the VariKont series are ideally suited for noncontact detection of metallic objects. This is why the proximity sensors are used in wide variety of industrial applications. In this blog article, you will learn how to correctly align the sensing face of the VariKont.
The Operating Principle of Inductive Proximity Sensors
Mechanical limit switches detect the presence and position of objects by making direct contact with a target. But this direct contact can cause wear on the mechanical parts of the limit switch and cause reliability issues with its object detection capabilities. That is why many users rely on inductive proximity sensors such as the VariKont. These sensors allow noncontact sensing of metallic targets. They are designed for use in manufacturing and conveyor lines across a variety of industries. Customers prefer these proximity sensors for their rugged construction, reliability, and versatility.
Available in Different Designs
The sensors of the VariKont series are available in different housing designs. The U2 version with a conduit entrance have screw terminals for wire connection, and the L2 version has a standard quick-disconnect M12 connector. Both U2 and L2 versions are equipped with a 5-way rotatable sensor head and the same mounting pattern for easy replacement. However, a different method is required for rotating the head on each sensor.
