Product Overview

Flexible and capable proximity sensors with I/O-link functionality

The recent increase in use of non-ferrous metals in manufacturing has caused part detection challenges for traditional proximity sensors. The use of non-ferrous metals such as aluminum helps to reduce weigh and/or cost for both simple and complex parts. However, if your proximity sensor fails to detect the part, it can result in damage and downtime.
The new E2EW metal face proximity sensors from Omron combine both long-distance sensing (three to four times sensing distance) and non-ferrous metal detection. Additionally, they can operate in welding environments without magnetic field and signaling issues.

Key Benefits

  • They promote flexibility. The E2EW families allow users to detect aluminum and iron at the same distance and standardize on fewer sensors.
  • They reduce error rates. The weld field immunity (WFI) feature allows E2EW sensors to operate normally in weld environments where magnetic fields can cause signaling issues for traditional proximity sensors.
  • They enable IIoT applications. The E2EW line uses IO-Link to help with sensor configuration and predictive maintenance.
  • They reduce the frequency of shutdowns. The E2EW sensors are full metal body sensors to handle difficult, collision prone environments, and ensure long service life.

Did you know... the precision measurement group at Cross was founded in 1939 by our current CEO's grandfather, Jim King. That's a whole lot of calibration!
Did you know... A fingerprint weighs about 50 micrograms. We know, we weighed it! The residue left from a finger can actually make a difference in weight results which is why we wear gloves when we calibrate weights. For reference, a sheet to paper is about 4.5 grams, that’s 4.5 million micrograms.
Did you know… Cross Company is an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). Our ESOP started in 1979 and as of 2006, we are a 100% employee owned! Learn more about our ESOP and how that benefits both team members and our customers.
Did you know… Cross Company has grown significantly since our start in 1954. Over the years we've acquired 26 companies! Today, our five groups have expertise in everything from industrial automation to precision measurement, and industry knowledge going all the way back to 1939.
