The Baumer IR06P02FF40NC1Z7SCV Inductive Proximity Switch is a Factor 1 sensor.
Standard sensors face up to 70% reduction of the sensing distance towards non-ferromagnetic metals.
Factor 1 sensors integrate a micro-controller for compensation.
As a result, factor 1 sensors do not have the drawback of material-dependent reduction of the sensing distance.
They feature negligible temperature drift and also stand out by high switching speed which makes them ideal for measurements on aluminum, non-ferrous metals and for rotation speed acquired towards gear wheels or perforated discs.
