M8 inductive proximity sensor M1-08.12.S

Sn=1.7mm, 3-wire, PNP/NC, 9-36VDC, 250mA, M8x30mm

Price 26 EUR no VAT

Shielded type M1-08.12.S proximity inductive sensor for direct current with cylindrical metallic housing M8x30mm, with PNP output type, with one normally closed contact. The maximum distance of operation of the proximity sensor is 1,7mm. The sensor ends with a 3-wire PVC connecting cable with a length of 2m and has an LED indicator showing the output state of the inductive sensor. The sensor's output has no protection of short circuit.


The presented shielded type M8/S inductive proximity sensor is used in industrial systems, as automation equipment for switching at 3-wire direct current electrical circuits. It is activated by approaching of metallic object to him active area. The inductive proximity sensor is resistant to moisture and dust. It has a long service life thanks to the non-contact switching of the electrical circuit in which it is connected.
