Turck unveils their line of uprox+ Factor 1 sensors

Turck’s line of uprox+ Factor 1 sensors include IP 69k rated washdown versions with temperature ratings from -40 to 100 °C. These sensors are designed to be resilient to the high-pressure cleaning agents often found in the food and beverage and pharmaceutical industries.

The sensors incorporate durable 316 stainless steel construction and a liquid crystal polymer front cap that aids in resisting moisture ingress. They also consist of a polypropylene cable jacket that stands up to harsh chemicals and extreme temperatures. The uprox+ sensors feature longer sensing ranges for detecting all metals, including non-ferrous metals such as stainless steel, at the same rated distance.
