The IS-12 series is an 12mm barrel inductive sensor with extended operating distance up to 8mm. It’s available in a 2, 3 or 4-wire connection, 2-m cable, M8 and M12 connector. The IS-12 also features a programmable output configuration.
The 2-wire, 3-wire or 4-wire design means you can choose the sensors to fit your applications. 2-wire sensors will work with any sinking or souring devices and you only have two wires to terminate. 3-wire configuration is the most popular output and familiar by users. 4-wire design offer configurability in one device as it comes with both NPN or PNP and NO/NC outputs.
Shielded versions allow flush mounting but limited detection range while unshielded version offer longer sending distance but flush mounting is not possible.
