TURCK Introduces Newest picoprox® Miniature Sensor
The 3 mm Diameter Inductive Sensor

Minneapolis, MN–July 9, 2004–TURCK Inc. announces the new 3 mm diameter inductive sensor, which is the latest addition to an extensive line of miniature picoprox sensors. The Bi 1-EH03 sensor offers a 1 mm sensing range on mild steel without the need for an in-line amplifier. The LED located near the cable entry of the sensors enables the user to easily confirm that the appropriate operation is in progress. These features make it ideal for applications that require small sensors to fit in tight areas such as those found in the metal stamping industry.

The Bi 1-EH03 sensors have a smooth, stainless steel barrel, with 2 meters of PUR potted-in cable for increased durability in applications where cutting coolants and other harsh chemicals are present. In addition to the standard cable version, TURCK has the ability to mold our standard M8 picofast® and M12 eurofast® connectors to the cable in varying lengths for easy installation.

These 3-wire, 10-30 VDC sensors feature integral circuitry that protects against wire-break and reverse polarity, and are available with either a PNP (sourcing) or NPN (sinking) TTL compatible output. Designed for use in industrial environments, this miniature sensor has a temperature rating of -25° to +70°C (-13° to +158°F), and carries a protection rating of IP 67.
