E52 inductive proximity sensors

Built sensor tough

E52 cube style – Eaton’s E52 cube-style sensors deliver rugged, robust, long-range inductive sensing. These sensors feature convenient auto-configuring outputs that automatically detect an NPN or PNP output configuration and automatically set up the sensor for proper operation, without user intervention. Bright power and output indicator LEDs make setup and troubleshooting easy.

E52 rectangular style – Eaton's E52 rectangular-style inductive proximity sensors feature a compact, space-saving design for applications where tubular sensors cannot be used. These 3-wire DC devices are constructed with robust PBT housings for corrosion resistance, and they are epoxy filled to withstand shock and vibration. Bright indicator LEDs are available on all models to clearly show sensor status.


Core features of E52 inductive proximity sensors

E52 cube style

  • Long inductive proximity ranges available (up to 40 mm sensing distance)
  • Four-wire DC models have complementary outputs (1NO-1NC)
  • Four-wire DC models use auto-configure technology, which allows the sensor to automatically adapt for NPN or PNP without user intervention
  • Robust design featuring vibration and impact absorbing potting compound
  • Ideal for extreme temperatures or high pressure washdown environments

E52 rectangular style

  • Small, low-profile design for use in space-restrictive applications
  • Three-wire DC operation
  • Choose from a variety of sizes, and side or end sensing configurations
  • Output indicator included on all models
  • Epoxy-filled cavities stop fluids from contacting any electrical component
  • Convenient mounting holes integrated into each sensor housing
