A proximity sensor detects nearby objects without physical contact by emitting an electromagnetic field or radiation, such as infrared, and analyzing changes in the field or return signal. The sensed object is known as the proximity sensor’s target.

Explore our collection to discover various proximity sensor types for detecting metal and plastic objects. We offer reputable brands like Autonics, Orange, and Generic Proximity Sensor. Autonics Sensor includes capacitive and inductive proximity sensors, operating at 10VDC ~ 30VDC with different detection distances from 0.5cm to 5 cm, output types, and outer thread sizes. Capacitive sensors are suitable for plastic targets, while inductive sensors require metal targets.

Choose the perfect proximity sensor to optimize your object detection needs with precision and reliability.
