KEPmeter Inductive Proximity Sensors D Series


  • CE Approved
  • Low Cost
  • Non-Contact Sensing of Any Metal
  • No Magnets Needed
  • Low Power Consumption
  • Shock Resistant

The D Series comes in three sizes, all in the easy flush mount type. Both NPN (sinking) or PNP (sourcing) types are available. They sense any conductive metal surface within the range of their sensing coils. They do not require a magnetic target and are perfect for our ratemeters and counters. An LED indicator lights during activation.
