Specifications table for model GX-12MLUB
ItemPerformance characteristics
Max. operation distance8 mm 0.315 in plus or minus 10 %
(Note) The maximum operation distance stands for the maximum distance for which the sensor can detect the standard sensing object.
Stable sensing range0 to 6.4 mm 0 to 0.252 in
(Note) The maximum operation distance stands for the maximum distance for which the sensor can detect the standard sensing object. The stable sensing range stands for the sensing range for which the sensor can stably detect the standard sensing object even if there is an ambient temperature drift and/or supply voltage fluctuation.
Standard sensing objectIron sheet 30 × 30 × t 1 mm 1.181 × 1.181 × t 0.039 in
Hysteresis20 % or less of operation distance (with standard sensing object)
Supply voltage12 to 24 V DC +10 /-15 % Ripple P-P 10 % or less
Current consumption0.8 mA or less
(Note) It is the leakage current when the output is in the OFF state.
OutputNon-contact DC 2-wire type
- Load current: 3 to 70 mA (Note 1)
- Residual voltage: 3 V or less (Note 2)
(Note 1) The maximum load current varies depending on the ambient temperature.
(Note 2) When the cable is extended, the residual voltage becomes larger.
