The Uprox+ sensors are capable of precisely detecting materials such as iron steel, stainless steel, copper, aluminum and brass at large sensing distances without a reduction in the rated sensing distance of the sensor. Sensors feature a newly patented multicoil system. This multicoil system replaces the wound coil found in conventional ferrite core inductive sensors, resulting in long sensing distances (up to 250% higher) and the flexibility to incorporate this technology in a variety of unique housing designs. The sensors also feature an integrated predamping protection function to reduce the metal-free mounting area. This allows traditionally flush mounted sensors to be recessed by half a turn for increased mechanical protection. Non-flush mounted sensors may be embedded in metal up to the outer edge of the thread on barrel style sensors and on all four sides of rectangular style sensors, causing only a slight reduction in sensing distance.
