New eddy current sensors with integrated EEPROM

Paul Boughton

Micro-Epsilon is now offering a completely new series of eddy current sensors. The new eddyNCDT 3100 series includes a special, compact controller and corresponding new sensors.

Sensors and cables are equipped with an integrated EEPROM chip, which includes all critical characteristics.

In the case of a sensor needing to be replaced, only a simple 3-point calibration is required. All important configuration and set up parameters are automatically transmitted from the sensor to the controller. All sensors are factory calibrated to adjust to ferromagnetic and non-ferromagnetic materials. Therefore, a precise definition of the measuring object is not required in advance. The controller housing, including mounting rail, is made from aluminium and protected to IP65.

The device itself does not have any viewable operational functions. All settings are carried out via a web browser independently of the operating system. Therefore, no additional software is required. The sensors are securely connected using a PTFE cable of 3m or 9m in length and protected to IP67.

Seven sensor models are currently available, covering all common applications. Further sensor models will follow.
