Limit Switches

Limit switches

Boasting a rich history of limit switch innovation dating back to the early 1900s, TE Sensors produce the broadest line of mechanical limit switches available in the industry.

Whether your machine application calls for an IEC, NEMA, safety, wireless, or battery-less limit switch, Telemecanique Sensors unparalleled selection of mechanical limit switches and connector options make it easy to find the perfect solution for your machine design.  TE limit switches come in standard, heavy duty, compact, miniature, safety, and application-specific models and our wireless and battery-less limit switches are revolutionizing the industry.

The wireless and battery-less limit switches have transformed an electronic signal previously traveling through a cable into internet data which can be easily documented and analyzed for maximum efficiency identification.

IEC Limit Switches. NEMA Limit Switches. Safety switches. Wireless switches. Battery-less switches. Switches that turn a signal into internet data enable industrial efficiency analytics.



Inductive Sensors & Capacitive Sensors

Inductive and Capacitive proximity sensors from Telemecanique Sensors

Regardless of the material you need to detect - without contacting it, Telemecanique Sensors has you covered with a full range of high quality and high performance inductive and capacitive sensors. For detecting metal objects up to 60mm, our range of inductive sensors feature the latest in high performance technology. For non-contact detection of any other type of material up to 20mm, our capacitive sensors match that same top level of performance.

A summary of these two best-in-class non-contact detection options appear below

Inductive proximity sensors - XS range

Our inductive proximity sensors (formerly known as OsiSense XS) are solely for the detection of metal objects up to 60mm. They basically comprise an oscillator whose windings constitute the sensing face. An alternating magnetic field is generated in front of these windings.

When a metal object is placed within the magnetic field generated by the sensor, the resulting currents induced form an additional load and the oscillations cease. This causes the output driver to operate and, depending on the sensor type, a normally open (NO) or normally closed (NC) output signal is produced.

Our inductive sensors come in flush and non-flush versions (shielded / non-shielded), short and long body versions, PNP and NPN versions  to be compatible with all PLCs and controllers worldwide. 2 wires DC, AC, or AC/DC versions are also available to be installed in your application as a limit switch.


Capacitive proximity sensors - XT range

Our capacitive sensors (formerly known as OsiSense XT) are for non-contact sensing of any material up to 20mm, irrespective of material or conductivity (metals, minerals, wood, plastic, glass, cardboard, leather, ceramic, fluids, etc).

Capacitive proximity sensors sense detection targets due to that target's ability to be electrically charged. Capacitive sensors apply voltage to an area and detect objects by measuring the changes in an electrical property called capacitance, which is the ability of something to hold an electric charge. Since even non-conductors can hold charges, this means that just about any object can be detected with this type of sensor.



Photoelectric Sensors

Photoelectric sensors

For over 45 years, Telemecanique Sensors has been setting industry standards in photoelectric proximity sensors with innovative design solutions like the XUY roller conveyor sensor.

Telemecanique Sensors XU range offers a full line of photoelectric proximity sensors dedicated to material handling, packaging, labelling, assembly, lift & escalators or food & beverage industries.

This range offers many functionalities such as Diffuse mode, Background Suppression (BGS), polarized reflex, laser reflex & through-beam or through-beam, available in the 4 most popular formats worldwide.

The XU range is divided into 4 sub-ranges for general purposes, lasers, forks and frames, and specific applications' sensors.


Safety sensors & switches

Safety sensors & switches

For over 90 years, Telemecanique Sensors has developed quality sensor products which help engineers ensure their machines are safe to operate and meet all the industry’s applicable safety standards.

Whether you need to secure a hazardous area, automate hazardous machinery shutdown when a restricted area is entered, or provide workers a readily available means to shut down hazardous machinery, Telemecanique Sensors’ line of Preventa safety products has you covered with a variety of machine safety solutions. The solutions include safety limit switches, safety interlock switches, contactless safety magnetic switches, contactless RFID safety sensors, safety light curtains, and emergency stop cable pull switches.

Securely lock the access to the machine. Automatically shut it down when a hazardous area close to it is breached. Provide employees a quick, easy way to shut it down.



Hazardous dust location switches and sensors

 Telemecanique Sensors Hazardous dust location switches and sensors

Some machine applications create potentially explosive atmospheres, making reliable detection even more critical. According to the European Directive, an explosive dust atmosphere is created when the air is mixed with a flammable dust which, in the event of combustion, would spread throughout the particles in the air which were not initially ignited.

Potentially explosive dust can be produced for a specific purpose (manufacturing flour or sugar, ...), generated when processing of solid materials (sawdust from cutting wood, ...) or result from the abrasion of solid material during transport (producing cereals, ...). All companies where such manufacturing is processed will face a risk of explosion. 

Sensors with International Certification

The Telemecanique Sensors line of hazardous dust atmosphere sensors are compliant with the global international standard IECEx and the latest European ATEX directive. By choosing a Telemecanique Sensor product for your hazardous dust machine application, you are choosing a sensor that has been tested and certified to perform in a manner compliant with these prominent, established safety standards.

The Zone System

ATEX (defined by AT: atmosphere and EX: explosive), IECEx and NEC 506 all use the same protection concept called the Zone system. The Zone defines the probability of the hazardous material (dust) being present in sufficient quantities to produce explosive or ignitable mixtures.

Zone 20 - An area where combustible dusts or ignitable fibers are suspended in the air continuously or for long periods of time.

Zone 21 - An area where combustible dusts or ignitable fibers are likely to be suspended in the air under normal operating conditions.

Zone 22 - An area where combustible dusts or ignitable fibers are, under normal operating conditions, not likely to be suspended in the air and do so for only a short period of time.

Telemecanique Sensors in conjunction with Demesne Electrical is proud to offer various ranges of Sensors that are ATEX and IECEx certified for use in all Zone 21 or Zone 22 applications. These hazardous area-certified products include robust limit switches, emergency stop cable pull switches, safety switches, pressure control sensors, and inductive proximity sensors.
