How do I interpret the catalog values for mutual interference with Proximity Sensors?Last Updated: September 29, 2018
Refer to the following figures.
Use Sensors with the values in the following table or higher when they are mounted facing each other or in parallel.
|DC 2-Wire Models
AC/DC 2-Wire Models
|Shielded||A||20||30 (20)||50 (30)||100 (50)|
|B||15||20 (12)||35 (18)||70 (35)|
|Unshielded||A||80||120 (60)||200 (100)||300 (100)|
|B||60||100 (50)||110 (60)||200 (100)|
Note:Values in parentheses apply to Sensors operating at different frequencies.
The values listed above are given in the precautions section of the catalog. Dimensions A and B are specified by the way in which the Proximity Sensors are arranged. If a gap cannot be provided between the Proximity Sensors, they can be used close together up to the catalog values in parentheses by using a standard model in combination with a model that has a different frequency.
Note:Two of the Sensors with a different frequency cannot be used near each other. Leave a gap of at least the value not in parentheses.
