A short tutorial on a 3 terminal pnp capacitive proximity sensor. I show you how to test and interface the sensor.
For example we will reference an inductive proximity sensor.
3 wire proximity sensor wiring diagram. And 4 wire dc inductive proximity sensors 3 wire and 4 wire dc 89 2 meter cable models dia. Let s talk about connection diagrams although sensor hookup is typically simple just a few wires it s always a good idea to consult the connection diagram before wiring to be sure you ll end up with the outcome you expect. Dc outputs an6 7 and ap6 3 wire dc outputs figure 12 electronic output circuit figure 13 wiring diagram figure 10 electronic output circuit figure 11 wiring diagram.
Inductive suffix e0 surface mount 3 wire and 4 wire dc inductive proximity sensors 3 wire and 4 wire dc singapore. Electronic sensors with switching output are commonly used to energize loads such as relay coils or plc inputs and a variety of sensor output configurations are available to operate in conjunction with these loads. 1 330 486 0001.
Remember in both cases the black wire is connected to the plc input channel terminal. A 3 wire sensor typically is color coded with one brown wire one blue wire and one black wire. 3 khz ss pur 22 awg 1 nbb2 12gm50 e0 2 flush npn n o.
The brown wire is the vdc wire that connects. If you are replacing a 3 wire sensor which operates on dc voltage it is important to know whether the sensor s output is a pnp or npn type. For most 3 wire.
12 nj2 12gm40 e2 2 flush pnp n o. Often this information is printed on the sensor itself but it is not uncommon for it to be scratched off over a long period of time. Pnp switches source 24 volts dc to the black wire when the switch is activated.
When autoplay is enabled a suggested video will. Mm model number range mm mounting electrical output switching frequency barrel material cable jacket size dwg. 1 5 khz ni brass pvc 26 awg 2.
In this post we ll look at the most common standard output types their wiring and the advantages and disadvantages of each. Npn pnp wiring 3 wire created date. When a target the object that a sensor is detecting comes within sensing range of the sensor the sensor output turns on and current flows.
