Over the last 50 years, Turck has built a reputation for designing and building reliable non-contact inductive sensors that are widely used in diverse positioning applications. Due to our extensive experience, we have created a broad product portfolio that enables a designer to find the sensor that fits the application.
Our portfolio includes standard inductive sensors as well as patented sensing technologies like uprox®, which sense all metals at the same range and at greater ranges than standard inductive sensors.
Inductive sensors detect metal objects contactless and wear-free. For this , they use a high-frequency electromagnetic AC field that interacts with the target. Their strengths are the enormous durability, reliability, high switching frequencies and a long service life. Through a unique coil concept the uprox sensors offers the highest switching distance factor.
