Smart Sensors (Inductive Displacement Type)


High-accuracy Detection of Metal Workpiece Displacement

Wide Selection of Sensor Heads

Smallest Heads in Its Class at 3 Dia.

Small Sensor Heads are perfect for detecting the height of small objects and for applications where multiple Sensor Heads are used.

ZX-E Features 2

Sensors with stainless steel Protective Spiral Tubes are also available.

ZX-E Features 3

New Flat and Heat-resistive Sensors Broaden Application Possibilities

The temperature characteristic ranks at the top in the industry at 0.1% FS/°C for heat-resistive sensors, and it ranges up to 200°C for flat sensors.

ZX-E Features 4

More Efficient Maintenance

Complete Compatibility between Sensor Heads and Amplifier Units

The Amplifier Unit can be used as is when replacing damaged Sensor Heads or changing the Sensor Head for different detection distances.

ZX-E Features 6

Sensor Head Cords Extendable to 10 m

The distance between the Amplifier Units the Sensor Heads can be extended to 3 m, 6 m, or 10 m using a ZX-XC[]A Cable (sold separately).

ZX-E Features 7

Complete Range of Useful Functions

Simple Linearity Adjustment

Adjustments using the adjustment knob are no longer required to adjust linearity. Linearity adjustment is completed simply by teaching at 0%, 50%, and 100% of the measurement distance, greatly reducing setting time.

ZX-E Features 9

Suitable for Non-ferrous Metals Also

Linearity is worse for non-ferrous than ferrous sensing objects. A material selection function has been developed to improve linearity with stainless steel and aluminum sensing objects.

ZX-E Features 10

Mutual Interference Prevented for Up to 5 Sensors

Multiple Sensors may be used in confined spaces for level difference measurements or multiple-point measurements. Mutual interference between up to 5 Sensors can be prevented simply by connecting Calculating Units to eliminate the need for timing signals on the user side.

ZX-E Features 11

Calculation Settings without Digital Panel Data

The calculation results from two Sensors can be displayed on the Amplifier for one Sensor simply by placing a Calculating Unit between the Amplifier Units. The required parameters need to be input only into one Amplifier Unit.
