The intelligent interface makes the factor 1 inductive proximity switch a universal sensor that can be parameterized to suit over 100,000 individual requirements. For example, we can set the two separately adjustable switching distances (each either NO or NC, as well as PNP or NPN), which enable early warning functions to be set for targets subject to wear. The user can thus take action already before a failure occurs.
We can also set different timer functions, e.g., an off-delay for speed monitoring. These options are already possible in I/O mode, in which the sensor can be operated on a conventional digital input.
