Aeco Proximity Sensors

Aeco design and produce a complete range of inductive, capacitive, photoelectric and magnetic proximity sensors.

Inductive:
These are electronic transducers which produce an output signal when a metallic object (steel, aluminium, copper, brass etc) enters into their sensing area from any direction without coming into contact.


-Cylindrical series 4-5-6.5-8-12-14-18-30 mm.
-Rectangular series dim:
8x8x40 - 10x16x28 - 12x26x40 - 17x17x30
-40x40x113 - 80x80x50 mm.
-Sensing distances from 1 ÷ 50 mm.
-NAMUR types from 5 ÷ 24 Vdc
-NAMUR EX types
-Amplified 2 wire types from 10 ÷ 30 Vdc.
-Amplified 3 and 4 wire
types NPN or PNP from 10 ÷ 30 Vdc.
-Amplified 2 wire types 20 ÷ 250 Vdc.
-Led incorporated
-Short circuit protection for amplified types.
-max. output current for D.C. 200mA for AC. 300 mA
-All types are available with cable or plug for connector.


Capactive:
These are electronic transducers which provide an output signal when any type of material (Wood, metal plastic, granular and powder product) comes into their sensing area without coming into contact.

-Cylindrical series 18 - 30 - 40 mm dia.
-Totally screened and partially screened version
-Adjustable sensing distance
-Amplified 4 wire types NPN or PNP, NO+NC from
10 ÷ 55 Vdc
-Amplified 2 wire types from 20 ÷ 250 Vac/dc
-Relay output type with 1 pole changeover 1A ÷ 220 Vac
-Supply voltage 18 ÷ 50 Vdc / 18 ÷ 240 Vac
-Led incorporated
-Short circuit protection for D.C. and A.C. versions
-Maximum output current D.C. 200 mA, AC. 300 mA
-Types with connector output
-Types with instantaneous intervention or timing up to 15 min
-Protection housing in HOSTAFORM if used as level control.


Photoelectric:
These are infrared electronic transducers which supply an output signal when an object of any type of material passes into their range. Types available: Thru Beam (B), reflection with reflector (R) polarised reflection with reflector (AR) and direct reflection (P). Available in the cable or in the H plug version for M12 connector. The short circuit protection is incorporated.

FT18 SERIES: threaded plastic housing 18x1 mm. dia.
-Supply voltage: 10 ÷ 30 Vdc, 20 ÷ 250 Vac
-Led incorporated
-Programmable output PNP or NPN antiphase NO+NC
-Max. output current 200 mA
-Output MOSFET, NO/NC programmable, max. output current
300 mA
-Available with axial beam or with 90° beam
FT18M SERIES: threaded metallic housing 18x1 mm dia.
-Supply voltage 10 ÷ 30 Vdc
-Sensitivity adjustment incorporated
-Two indicator led: green led-stability indicator, yellow
led-operation indicator
-Available with axial beam or 90° beam

FTQ SERIES: rectangular plastic housing 18x50x50mm
-Supply voltage: 10 ÷ 30/12-240 Vdc/ac
-Sensitivity adjustment incorporated
-Two indicator led: green led-stability indicator, yellow
led-operation indicator
-Programmable functions NPN/PNP, antiphase NO+NC
-Relay output changeover 1A at 220 Vac and Programmable
relay ON/OFF
-In the H plug types the direction of the connector exit
can be selected


Magnetic:
These are made of a reed switch, which can be switched by a magnet. There is no mechanical movement and the contacts are protected and hermetically enclosed in a glass bulb which contains inert gasses, mechanical and electrical deterioration is therefore kept to minimum. The standard version is supplied with open, closed and changeover contacts.

-SMC cylindrical series is available with threaded metallic housing
for 6-8-10-12-18 mm. dia. and smooth 12 mm is available with
threaded 9PG.
-SMP series is available with plastic or metallic rectangular housing
for 15x8x32 mm. dimensions.
-SMC-12LM/18M/09PGM are available with power reed
-Different types of magnets are available
-SMC types are used for frontal sensing and SMP types are used
for side sensing.

Special versions can be supplied upon request, when large quantities are involved


Rotation:
This unit is used for checking for the slowing down of rotating units due to the slipping of belts of clutches, fracture of transport belts or chains or as a motor protection in the case of mechanical overload. This control is carried out by the CRTP controller which is made up of an electronic circuit which is enclosed in a plastic container which has an undecal plug and a sensor which can be inductive, capacitive or photoelectric.

-Power supply 24-110/220 Vac 50/60 Hz
-Relay output 1 pole changeover 5A to 220 Vac
-Led incorporated
-The time range goes from 0.03 sec. to 512 sec
-Initial delay is adjustable in order to permit
rotating unit to start
-Function A with alarm and manual reset
-Function B with alarm and automatic reset
-Adapted for NAMUR and amplified NPN or PNP sensor
-All the functions are programmed through a selector switch in case of loss of power the relay changes state thus giving the alarm condition.

A compact version of model CRT30 is also supplied. This consists of a threaded Inductive cylindrical switch type M30X1.5 having a sensing area and a complete programming control area.
