Inductive Sensors with Active Shielding Technology

Inductive Sensors with Active Shielding Technology

22 May 2020
Reliably High Sensing Range in All Installation Situations 
  • Consistently high sensing ranges regardless of where the device is installed thanks to Active Shielding Technology
  • Greater flexibility: high sensing range up to 30 mm flush and 50 mm non-flush for greater tolerances when designing plants
  • Extremely easy status monitoring since corner LEDs ensure 360° visibility from all angles

The VariKont series from Pepperl+Fuchs enables higher sensing ranges, regardless of the type of installation and the mounting material. Actively detecting the metal surrounding the installation establishes a constant sensing range in which the object can be detected.

Inductive sensors are the first choice for detecting metallic objects. Increasing the sensing range means that the sensor is not only able to detect the object with greater sensitivity, the metal surrounding the installation also has an increasing impact on the electromagnetic fields. The sensor is preattenuated by the installation and changes its sensing range.

Using new technology developed by Pepperl+Fuchs, the inductive VariKont sensor actively detects the installation environment and maintains a constant sensing range—no matter what type of metal surrounds the installation.
The consistently high sensing ranges—30 mm flush and 50 mm non-flush—allow plants to be planned more reliably and mechanical tolerances in machines to be utilized as much as possible.
