Ferrous and Non-Ferrous Cylindrical Proximity Sensor

The E2V-X provides long-distance detection of aluminum or iron, while mounted flush in metal.
  • Highly visible indicator
  • DC 3-wire proximity sensors: M12, M18, M30
  • Standard and Long-distance detection in pre-wired or connector models
  • Nickel-plated brass housing

Aluminum Detection Distance

1.5 to 2 Times Previous Models

Immunity against aluminum chips has enabled achieving long-distance detection of aluminum workpieces. The same detection has also been achieved for iron, allowing the E2V-X[] to be separated from workpieces made of either metal farther than any other Proximity Sensor.


Note:*In-house comparison of M18 Shielded Long-distance Models

Detection Made Visible

An operation indicator that is visible from any direction is provided as a standard feature. This indicator flashes under unstable conditions for easy installation condition verification at a glance.
