The maximum operation distance stands for the maximum distance for which the sensor can detect the standard sensing object.
The stable sensing range stands for the sensing range for which the sensor can stably detect the standard sensing object even if there is an ambient temperature drift and/or supply voltage fluctuation.
Flexible cable type is also available for sheilded type.
When ordering this type, suffix "-R" to the model No.
(e.g.) Flexible cable type of GX-3S is "GX-3S-R".
5 m 16.404 ft cable length type (standard: 3 m 9.843 ft) is also available.
When ordering this type, suffix "-C5" to the model No.
(e.g.) 5 m 16.404 ft cable length type of GX-3S is "GX-3S-C5".
Refer to table below for 5 m 16.404 ft cable length type of flexible cable type sensor.
Table of model Nos.
GX-3S~ is an amplifier built-in inductive proximity sensor having a diameter of just ø3.8 mm ø0.150 in.
The GX-4S~ uses a robust stainless steel enclosure. The tightening torque can be 0.58 N'm or less.
The non-shielded type (GX-8ML~) has twice the sensing range of the shielded type (GX-8M~), although having the same size. Hence, it allows margin against sensing distance variations
