Proximity Switch Brands
« on: January 24, 2016, 09:43:PM »
I have compiled a list of proximity switch brands. Anyone care to comment on these? Any prox switches i should stay away from? Looking for some input as I will be soon to design some controls that could be mass produced if all goes well. Here are the brands I found:

  • Baluff
  • Contrinex
  • Eaton
  • IFM
  • Pepper Fuchs
  • Schneider Electric (SQD)
  • Turck
  • Baumer
  • Allen Bradley
  • Omron

I have had great luck with Turck as well as Electromatic prox switches.

I'm new here, but I have used both Pepper Fuchs switches and the Turck line and never had any real issues. I've also used the Allen Bradley prox sensors in the past, but move mainly to the Pepper and Turck mainly because the local distributor is a friend of mine.
