Pepperl + Fuchs Proximity Sensor Kit
Pepperl + Fuchs Proximity Sensor Kit
Our Proximity Sensor Kit features Pepperl + Fuchs NPN inductive proximity switches and installs easily on all of our Standard, PRO, and Benchtop machine kits, or machines from other manufacturers.

This kit provides a complete solution to automatic home your CNC machine, square your gantry, and provide active safety limits to prevent crashes and protect your machine and workpieces.

We highly recommend its use with any of our Standard CNC, PRO CNC, or Benchtop CNC machine kits.

Product Features
  • 8mm detection distance against steel and 5mm distance against aluminum. The extended range allows you to completely protect your limit switches with bumpers or other mechanisms and still have sensing range
  • Increased working temperature range (-25 to 70 degrees C), and negligible drift in sensing distance over the working temperature range.
  • Outstanding German quality in component selection and assembly.
  • Each sensor has an LED to quickly indicate function, and features an M12 x 1 threaded body that provides fine adjustment of detection distance for precision homing and squaring of your machine.
  • Our sensor cables are 5 meters in length and feature M12 connectors (the standard for our Plug and Play CNC Control Systems), including a lower profile M12 right-angle connection to the sensor.
  • Additional 5 meter cable extensions are also available, see the Product Options below.
Product Options / Configuration:
Our Proximity Sensor Kit is available in several configurations:
  • Homing-only Kits provide the ability to automatically home your machine and square your gantry. They include:
    1. (4) Sensors, intended to be used for X-, Y-, Z+, and B- (slave axis).
    2. (4) 5-meter cables, with lower profile right-angle connections to the sensors.
    3. (2) 5-meter extension cables for machines larger than 4'x4', intended for the X- and Z+ sensors.
  • Homing/Limit Kits provide the ability to automatically home your machine and square your gantry, and additionally serve as active limits for X-, X+, Y-, Y+, and Z+. They include:
    1. (6) Sensors, intended to be used for X-, Y-, Z+, B- (slave axis), X+, and Y+.
    2. (6) 5-meter cables, with lower profile right-angle connections to the sensors.
    3. (4) 5-meter extension cables for machines larger than 4'x4', intended for the X-, X+, Y+, and Z+ sensors.
  • Powering your sensors:
    • Our proximity sensors do NOT require an external power source when used with any of our Plug and Play CNC Control Systems or Digital DIY Electronics kits. If you require a power source for use with other electronics that do not provide 12-30v power for sensors (such as the G540), the External Power Supply option is available below to include a separate 12V DC power supply.
  • Wiring your sensors:
    • The Connection Kit option below provides an optional set of terminal blocks and DIN rail segment for easy connection and wire management.
  • Sensor Cable connectors:
    • M12 connectors are now standard on our sensor cables and Plug and Play CNC Control Systems. For use with other electronics, simply cut the male M12 connector off the sensor cable to connect to your drive.
