Turck is proud to announce the addition of new 4 mm and 5 mm barrel sensors to its existing lineup. The new EG05K and EH04K are 15 mm shorter than the standard EG05 and EH04, which allow the new offering to be used in applications previously not possible. This new, more compact offering is a welcome addition to the stamping Industry, medical device manufacturing and any application where small sensors are a requirement.
The EG05K and EH04K are housed in a stainless steel barrel and come with a high flex TPU cable ensuring it can withstand harsh applications including those involving corrosive chemicals. Offering a 1mm sensing range and full flush mounting, the EG05K and EH04K reduce the chance of damage while still offering the sensing range demanded. The EG05K and EH04K come equipped with a high visibility LED to provide users a visual indication of the sensor’s status.
“We created the EG05K and EH05K in response to hearing customers request a solution that met the increasingly compact requirements brought on by the shrinking size of machinery ”, explains John Murphy, Product Manager for Turck. “These new additions provide our customers with the shortest M4 and M5 sensors on the market while retaining the robust qualities our customers expect from Turck”.
The EH04K is available in 2 meters of potted cable, while the EG05K is available in 2 meters of potted cable or with an integral M8 connector. The sensors are IP67 rated, have an operating temperature range from -25 °C to 70 °C, and offer PNP and NPN configurations for increased application flexibility.
