Inductive Factor 1 Sensors

Fixed distance to the object and maximum sensing distances

Inductive Factor 1 sensors offer the great benefit of maintaining the same sensing distance towards all metals. This uniform distance offers outstanding flexibility in system conception and sensor installation. However, the benefits of Baumer sensors go even further: They are the fastest in their class in relation to sensing distance and have exceptional sensing latitude.
