Space is rare! You´d like to to mount your proximity switch inside a hollow screw?
This is exactly the purpose of proximity-switch set NSS . The sensor with D=6,5mm is available in 2 lengths (65mm and 85mm). It has an external thread (M10x1) to adjust the sensor in its position.
Advantage: The knurl is clamping the sensor! That means: the relative position of sensor and screw stays fixed, even if you "move" the outer screw by screwing in/out!
Our sensors do have a special field direction not to get a "wrong" signal by the hollow environment. The switching distance is 1mm.
Even for our miniature-units such sensors, to be fixed in the hollow stop-screw, are available. They have a diameter of D= 4mm and are stucked via clamp fit. Their switching distance is 0,8mm.
These 3 models are PNP "normally open" and do work from 10 - 30 VDC.
See pictures beneath :
- can be retro-fitted in existing stop-screws of our units
- can be retro-fitted in existing thread-bore of your system (NSS-O-6,5-*)
- are sold as a set "sensor with stop-screw" (accessories)
- can be used outside of our aplications
