Cylindrical Inductive Proximity Sensor GX-U/GX-FU/GX-N

These compact Cylindrical Inductive Proximity Sensors with built-in amplifier offer an improved sensing range that is 1.6 times longer than Panasonic's previous model [GX-12ML(B)] and can be mounted at a greater distance from the object. Having their enclosure and pigtail cable entirely coated with a fluorine resin makes them splatter-resistant so they can be safely used in applications prone to splatter.
