Product Features

This inductive sensor can detect metallic objects within 5mm and behaves like a switch that connects to a digital input.
Product Description

This inductive proximity sensor will detect the prescence of a metallic object within 5mm of the surface of the sensor. The detection distance may vary slightly depending on the shape, size, and type of metal the object is made of. It can detect through thin, non-metallic materials and has an LED indicator that turns on when the device is powered, and increases in brightness when an object is detected.

This sensor connects to any device with a Digital Input.

This is how you connect the 3528 to a Phidget board that does not have 12V power such as the 1018, 1012, 1202, and 1203 using our 12VDC Power Supply:

  • Connect the +12 wire from the Power Supply (that's the one with the white line) to the 3528 Brown wire.
  • Connect the 3528 Black wire to a Digital Input on the 1018.
  • Connect the Power supply Ground Wire and the 3528 Blue wire to the Digital Input Ground connector on the 1018.

Note:When the 3528 is connected to a 1012, it will behave as a Normally Close (NC) sensor instead of Normally Open (NO).

The 3528 can also be used with the 1144 - 12V Sensor Adapter if you want to connect to a device with an analog input without worrying about providing a 12V power supply.

For boards that have power input, if the supplied power is within 12-24VDC, the +V line can be connected to the terminal block, powering the sensor from the Phidget. The 1019, 1072, and 1063 all accept external power.
