Dual Inductive SensorThe new F31K2 completes the Pepperl+Fuchs offering of “open solutions for valve position feedback on valve actuators” with dual- inductive sensors. This dual-inductive sensor series was designed for outdoor applications. The “house-in housing” design of the sensor provides double the mechanical protection and impermeability. The sensor and control electronics are integrated in a single module enclosed in a tough, translucent housing together with the terminal compartment. The materials used for the housing are resistant to high temperatures, UV and corrosion. It has a large terminal compartment and pluggable terminal block. The F31K2 dual-inductive sensor for valve position feedback has been designed for the international market. The temperature range of -40 C to 75 C and IP degrees of protection IP66/67/69K cover a variety of applications. The dual-inductive sensor is a good fit for chemical/petrochemical and oil & gas industries. Typical areas of use include outdoor applications with Ex-nA approval for zone 2/22. A 4-wire DC version is available as an electronic output stage. – www.pepperl-fuchs.com
