I8-N inductive sensor
The inductive proximity sensor works by changing its electromagnetic field in response to the approach of a metal object. This type of sensor is a simple solution for most applications requiring accurate, non-contact detection of metal objects in machinery or automatic equipment. Termipol's sensors that meet the high requirements of automation and process control are covered by warranty and service support.

Inductive sensors are used in metal, food, agriculture and a wide field of industrial automation.
Position signaling - Proximity inductive sensors are automation components that respond to the introduction of metal into their zone of operation. They are commonly used in industrial automation systems to precisely determine the position of moving parts of machinery and equipment, and are characterized by high operational reliability, repeatability and dependability in harsh environmental conditions such as excessive dust, humidity, etc.

Motion detection - Inductive motion sensors control rotary or linear motion by signaling a decrease in rotation or cessation of motion. They are equipped with an output to enable an external meter such as a CA4 or CI8 pulse counter .The sensor has LED signaling for easy positioning in the operating zone. Motion sensors are particularly useful for control of transport on production lines, drive systems, fans, motors, etc.
