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 %

Temperature characteristics vary within ±8 %

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.

* Typical

10 times the durability! (Compared to conventional 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 in double amplitude in X, Y and Z directions for 2 hours each). In addition, resistance to impulse noise is approx. three times greater than for conventional 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.

Conductor thickness doubled to make wiring much easier! (GX-□6/GX-□8 only)

The conductor's thickness was doubled for the GX-□6/GX-□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.
