Model H3C-H Adjustable Proximity Sensor
The model H3C-H adjustable proximity sensor has 2 outputs in one unit, and is equipped with an automatic tuning function that uses operator teaching to configure an optimal operating point within a detection area. The operation modes of the two outputs can be combined, enabling detection of a maximum 4 areas with one H3C-H unit. For some applications that previously required two proximity switches, only one is now enough.

Also, by using a purpose-built setting tool on a PC, the safety margin of the sensor’s settings can be visualized, making it possible to quickly adjust them for stable detection. As a result, the H3C-H both reduces the space needed for sensor installation and significantly reduces the time needed for adjustment.
