Expanded Teachable

Turck is expanding its portfolio of capacitive sensors, now offering 18 mm and 30 mm capacitive barrel sensors with teachable capabilities. The new offering comes in two variants - teach by wire or teach by button.

The teach by button variant can be taught by a single press of a button, saving valuable installation and configuration time. Both present and absent media can be taught for a higher sensitivity teach. The variant without a push button can be taught either by a teach adapter or teach by wire (pin 5), which allows for a tamper-resistant installation. Each variant is available in either PNP or NPN.

BCC Sensors for Level Control

The BCC sensors blank out all interferences during the monitoring process. They are EMC and ESD immune. A laterally mounted shield and an integrated processing unit inhibit predamping when mounted in metal flanges. The full switching distance is thus available.

  • Detection of smallest pellets
  • Same switching distance, even when mounted in metal barrels
  • Excellent EMC and ESD properties

Embeddable/Nonembeddable Metal Barrel

Whether metal or plastic housing, the product range of standard cylindrical sensors is large, offering devices with diameters between 12 mm and 40 mm. The flush mountable sensors generate an almost linear detection field. Besides the usual reliability, capacitive TURCK sensors feature standard functions such as automatic wetting compensation, excellent EMC and ESD properties and they are flexibly mounted.

  • Housing: 12mm, 18mm & 30mm
  • Sensing Range: 3mm, 5mm & 10mm

BCF Sensors for Demanding Applications

Conventional sensors do not operate reliably in demanding ambients. Residue and humidity on the active face may inhibit proper operation of the sensor. These problems are now ruled out with the new BCF series. Even conductive clingage are not a problem any more, thanks to the novel technology. The sensors are immune to radiated and conducted HF interference, burst as well as electrostatic discharge (ESD).

  • Suited for highly viscous media
  • Increased EMI and RFI shielding

Embeddable/Nonembeddable Rectangular

The rectangular devices offer high-quality components and high functionality in a rugged housing. These sensors moreover convince through easy and convenient mounting. The prescribed free zones are considerably smaller, lowering the construction effort while enhancing the system availability. You save time and money.

  • Rectangular with Potted-in Cable
  • Rectangular with Quick Disconnect
  • Rectangular with Terminal Chamber

Embeddable/Nonembeddable Plastic Barrel

Capacitive sensors work reliably and safe, even under rough environmental conditions. Special protective measures ensure failsafe operation of the sensors in ambients subject to high electromagnetic interference. The sensors are also ESD immune. Automatic wetting compensation eliminates moreover interferences caused by wetting and condensation.

  • Housing: 12mm, 18mm, 30mm, 34mm & 40mm
  • Sensing Range: 3-4.5mm, 5-7.5mm, 10-15mm, 15-23mm & 20-30mm

High-Temperature Resistant

A growing number of applications require sensors resisting temperatures beyond the standard range of -25°C to +70°C. For this purpose TURCK has developed capacitive sensors which meet exactly these requirements. The sensors feature temperature resistant components as well as cleverly designed passive cooling concepts, approved in demanding laboratory tests. These sensors resist temperatures from -25°C to +100°C.

  • For temperatures up to +100°C
  • Automatic wetting compensation
  • Excellent EMC properties
  • ESD immunity

AC 2-Wire

AC 2-wire sensors are easily installed, they replace mechanical switches in existing systems and simplify wiring. The established wiring, normally two wires, can still be used. Cutting down on the amount of wiring safes time.

  • Automatic wetting compensation
  • Excellent EMC properties
  • Large switching distances

NAMUR sensors are approved for the zones 0 and 1. They are polarized 2-wire devices, changing their internal resistance in dependence on the attenuation (continuous linear/current characteristics). They can be connected to external switching amplifiers which convert current variations into binary output signals. The advantage: With an approved switching amplifier, they can be applied in Ex areas as well as monitor wire-break and short-circuit continuously.

  • Integrated sensor monitoring
  • Automatic wetting compensation
  • Excellent EMC properties
  • Ex-area approved

The capacitive sensors (PVDF) are the ideal solution for any application of the pharmaceutical, chemical or food industry. The broad range of functional features of TURCK sensors help to optimize all kinds of applications, for instance, in dairies, breweries, the manufacture of bakery products and frozen foods, or packaging and filling procedures. PVDF materials belong to the group of fluoride plastics. They are extremely resistant due to the high fluorine content. They also feature a high tracking resistance under constant load, good cold properties and excellent temperature resistance.

  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Automatic wetting compensation
  • Excellent EMC properties
  • Large switching distances

All Plastic for Applications Involving Corrosive Chemicals

TURCK announces an extension to their capacitive sensor line, introducing an all plastic capacitive sensor with a TPE cable and a sealed potentiometer designed for use in applications involving aggressive chemicals. The QF5.5 features a sealed potentiometer, allowing the sensor to have no exposed metal which can corrode when it comes in contact with aggressive chemicals. The sensor also comes with a thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) cable instead of the traditional PUR cable providing the cable with better chemical compatibility. Combining these features provides an ideal capacitive sensor solution for corrosive environments. The QF5.5 features a flat design for easy mounting and installation. Additionally, the sensor meets IP67 and is rated for temperatures -25° C to 70° C.

Datalogic Sensors

The Keyboard is locked at the sensor powering and can be activated by pressing the SET push-button for 5 seconds until the keylock LED turns on. The keyboard is locked again automatically if not used for 2 minutes. The LD46 luminescence sensors emit ultraviolet light and detect only visible light converted and reflected from fluorescent objects or marks, independent from the background color and surface. The LD46 sensors can reach a 100mm operating distance

Datalogic Accessories

Metric Wheels are used with encoders mainly for length measuring applications and the accuracy is given by the ratio between the wheel circumference and encoder's resolution. The draw wire accessory is used with the encoder for length measurement and position control applications. The wire head is fixed to an object, the movement of which rotates the encoder shaft and is thus possible to make measurements of displacement, length, or position up to
