Variation at the maximum operation distance is within ±8 %

Thorough adjustment and control of sensing sensitivity greatly reduces individual sensor differences and variations.
The work of adjusting sensor positions when using multiple sensors and when sensors have been replaced is much easier.

Example: GX-□8

Variation at the maximum operation distance is within ±8 %

Can be insTemperature characteristics vary within ±8 %talled with ample space

product design have been totally revised to provide excellent temperature characteristics.
Stable sensing can be obtained regardless of the time of day or the yearly season.

Temperature characteristics vary within ±8 %
* Typical

10 times the durability! (Compared to previous models)

The new integrated construction method used provides shock resistance of 10,000 m/s2 (approx. 1,000 G in X, Y and Z directions for three times each), and vibration resistance clears durability tests of between 10 and 500 Hz (3 mm 0.118 inamplitude in X, Y and Z directions for 2 hours each). In addition, resistance to impulse noise is approx. three times greater than for previous models.

Highly resistant to water or oil! IP68G* protective construction

Components such as the sensor coil and core and product design have been totally revised to provide excellent temperature characteristics.
Stable sensing can be obtained regardless of the time of day or the yearly season.

Indicators are easy to see over a wide field of view

A prism with a wide field of view has been developed. This has greatly improved the visibility of the operation indicators.

Tightening strength increased with no damage! (excluding GX-□6)

A metal sleeve has been inserted.
It prevents the sensor from being damaged by tightening too much.

Tightening strength increased with no damage! (excluding GX-□6)

Indicators are eaConductor thickness doubled to make wiring much easier! (GX-□6/□8 only)sy to see over a wide field of view

The conductor's thickness was doubled for the GX-□6/□8. This makes it easier to handle and perform crimping work on the cables. In addition, the tensile strength of the crimping area has become higher.

5 m 16.404 ft cable length type (standard: 1 m 3.281 ft) and flexible cable (excluding 5 m 16.404 ft cable length type) are available.
However, long sensing range type is not available. When ordering 5 m 16.404 ft cable length type, suffix "-C5" to the model No. When ordering flexible cable type, suffix "-R" to the model No.
(e.g.) 5 m 16.404 ft cable length type of GX-F15AI-P is "GX-F15AI-P-C5". Flexible cable type of GX-F15AI-P is "GX-F15AI-P-R".
