APPLICATIONS
 
The array of applications where Turck products are used is as extensive as the markets where they are applied. In fact, many Turck solutions have been designed to meet specific applications and keep Turck customers ahead of the competition, including:
 
Industrial Ethernet
 
Turck provides customers with forward-thinking Industrial Ethernet products which allow them to control and streamline manufacturing processes like never before. From M8 Ethernet connectivity solutions for shrinking control devices to Turck's Multiprotocol Ethernet technology, Turck's innovative solutions allow Industrial Ethernet communication to be done quicker and easier.
 
Welding
 
A full line of products have been specially developed for use in welding environments. These sensors, cordsets and network devices use special materials that resist weldslag buildup. Turck’s uprox®3 sensors feature an integrated predamping protection function, which allows embeddable sensors to be recessed mounted by a half turn. It also allows non-embeddable barrel style sensors to be embedded in metal up to the outer edge of the thread and non-flush rectangular style sensors to be embedded in metal on all four sides with some reduction in sensing range.
 
Washdown for Food and Beverage
 
Turck uses the highest-quality materials for its IP69K washdown-grade sensors, cordsets and I/O stations. These parts are able to withstand the spraying, cleaning and humid or moist environments often found in food and beverage applications.
 
Extreme Temperatures
 
Turck products have some of the highest tolerances to temperature extremes on the market. Sensors are available with ratings as low as -60 °C or high as 250 °C and I/O products are rated from -40 °C to 70 °C. For connectivity, Turck's extremelife-60 cable offering combines an unparalleled amount of approvals for extreme temperatures and is temperature rated from -60 °C to 105 °C.
