Uprox3 Factor 1 Sensors

Turck announces the uprox3 series of sensors, which offers the largest switching distances of all Factor 1 sensors on the market thanks to an electronic platform that uses the latest chip set and manufacturing technologies. These technologies are a world first, enabling the creation of the Uprox3 Factor 1 sensors in compact, 4 mm smooth barrel, and M5 designs with a 1 mm switching distance, even for flush mounting. Turck has also managed to shrink the previously most compact M8, M12 and M18 designs.

Uprox3 sensors are the third generation of Turck’s Uprox Factor 1 sensors. Although the existing Uprox+ sensors offered large switching distances for all metals, these distances are increased by as much as 50 percent in the new sensors. It was previously unattainable to sense 3 mm in the M8 design, 6 mm in M12, 10 mm in M18, and 20 mm in M30. However, thanks to the consistent development of its Uprox technology, Turck has been able to achieve these larger switching distances without any compromises in performance. The Uprox3 sensors still offer outstanding application reliability for demanding sensing tasks, but also allow for the possibility of completely new installations.

Because of their inherent immunity to magnetic fields, the Uprox3 series sensors are suitable for use in many demanding industrial sectors, such as welding for the automotive and metal forming markets. The new Uprox3 series will be available with robust PTFE coated sensors in M8, M12, M18 and M30 designs (weldguard will also be available). Like their predecessors, all Uprox3 sensors offer high EMC stability and flexible mounting, including full flush mounting, as well as precise switch points.
