Inductive sensors for the ex-area

Reliable detection in the explosive area.

Our ATEX-certified sensors are optimally suited for the detection of positions and/or end positions of metal objects in explosive areas, e.g. during powder coating. Many different applications are possible thanks to the various output types and housing shapes.
