Banner Engineering In-Line Work Light Motion Detector Switch

Banner Engineering’s WLS28-2MQ motion detector switch was developed for use in applications that need an automated way to switch the light. The motion detector is ideal for locations that cannot use a physical switch or the placement of the switch isn’t useful. The in-line module allows you to place the motion detection switch away from the light. Place this motion detection switch inside of an electrical enclosure to automatically turn the light on when the door is open, and automatically turn the light off when it is closed.The built-in models make it easy to install in one place. The in-line …

Turck Q4.7 Miniature Inductive Sensors

TURCK has added the Q4.7 series of rectangular inductive sensors to its range of miniature sensors. The miniature sensors in the new design (16 x 8 x 4.7 millimeters) have been specially developed for applications in which they have to be fully embedded in metal, such as in the stamping and metal forming industry. These kinds of applications not only require robust sensors with large switching distances, but also very small housing to reduce the amount of surrounding metal to be removed for the recesses.The Q4.7 meets all the requirements mentioned with a two millimeter sensing range, a robust metal …
