TURCK Factor 1 prox sensors handle washdown environments
Minneapolis, Minn. — TURCK's line of uprox+ Factor 1 sensors now include IP 69k rated washdown versions with temperature ratings from -40 to 100° C. These sensors are exceptionally resilient to the high-pressure cleaning agents often found in the food and beverage and pharmaceutical industries.
The sensors incorporate durable 316 stainless steel construction and a liquid crystal polymer front cap that aids in resisting moisture ingress. They also consist of a polypropylene cable jacket that stands up to harsh chemicals and extreme temperatures.
The uprox+ sensors feature longer sensing ranges for detecting all metals, including non-ferrous metals such as stainless steel, at the same rated distance. This is especially useful in applications like food and beverage where the targets are often made from stainless steel.
TURCK is an industry leader providing superior quality sensing, connectivity and network products to help manufacturers improve their automated processes.
