We Have Your Industrial Automation Sensor!

Inductive proximity sensors basically let you know if something is there (parts presence), detect and confirm features, verify a hole presence or absence and many other applications.

Inductive proximity sensors are competitive, reliable and accurate. Relatively rugged and they are generally the most popular choice if the target you are detecting is metal.

industrial sensorsCapacitive proximity sensors are similar to inductive but they product an electrostatic field instead of an electromagnetic one.

Capacitive proximity sensors will sense metal as well as nonmetallic materials such as paper, glass, liquids, and cloth. Level detection through a barrier is a popular application for a capacitive proximity sensor.

Photoelectric sensors are available in different models including through-beam (using a transmitter and receiver), retro-reflective (using a reflector), diffuse reflective and many other application specific models.

Photoelectric sensors can be used for metallic or non-metallic targets.

Laser sensors use a variety of methods to effectively detect product details. These sensors are also capable of long-range position detection and target color will not affect these.

The Devastating Effects Of Static

Of course static in our homes can be very frustrating with electric shocks, crazy hair days and missing socks that are later found clinging to a bath towel.

static ionizersThere is another area where static can be more than frustrating. Static charges on an assembly line can have devastating effects on sensitive production pieces.

The good news is we have an extensive line of static sensing and reduction sensors from Panasonic (formerly SUNX Sensors).

Our high-frequency AC ionizers offer extremely fast charge reduction by emitting a highly balanced ion stream directly to your parts before static discharge has a chance to damage them.

Take a look at our line of static ionizers and electrostatic sensors!

Panasonic Inductive Proximity Sensors - Longest Stable Sensing Distance!

The Panasonic GX-F/H rectangular inductive proximity switch series has the longest stable sensing in the industry!

This sensor is easy to install. Plus the precise adjustment and control of sensing sensitivity greatly reduces individual sensor differences and variations.

The Panasonic GX-F/H inductive proximity sensors make it much easier to adjust sensor positions when using multiple sensors or when sensors have been replaced. 

Stable sensing can be obtained regardless of the time of day or season.


  • Built-in amplifier
  • Mutual interference prevention
  • Oil and water resistant
  • Easy to see indicators

Applications include:positioning process equipment

muting light curtainsMuting control of light curtains

Positioning process equipment

Positioning metal pallets
