The new E2EW Series from Omron is designed to address the need for same-sensing-distance proximity sensors with suitably long sensing ranges. These highly durable, metal face proximity sensors boast the longest sensing range in their category to date, and they have been optimized to withstand the harsh conditions of typical automotive welding processes with a fluororesin coating which provides increased spatter resistance.
The sensing range of the E2EW Series is approximately twice long as previous models for ferrous metals and six times as long as previous models for aluminum, making them the ideal solution for mixed-metal production lines. As the sensing ranges for both metals are now equivalent, the sensors support a common design for position detection in such lines. They also reduce unexpected facility stoppages by minimizing false detection for unsteady objects.
