E2EW Series features and benefits

Non-ferrous metals like aluminum are useful when weight lightening is needed, but they can make part detection more difficult relative to iron. Proximity sensors may be limited in their ability to detect non-ferrous metals and can be damaged as a result.

Long-distance sensing

The E2EW family’s ultra-long sensing distance makes it the ideal solution for minimizing unplanned downtime with stable detection.

Enhanced flexibility

E2EW 3x and 4x sensors can detect non-ferrous metals at the same distance as iron, reducing errors when metals like aluminum are used in place of iron.

Enhanced stability

Our 3x and 4x sensors are weld-field immune and are able to maintain stable functionality even in the presence of magnetic fields generated by weld processes.

Increased uptime

Omron’s proprietary coating reduces slag buildup and lasts 60x longer than previous spatter-coated models.

Intelligence at the sensor

IO-Link facilitates easy configurability and enables preventive maintenance by monitoring sensor output over time.

Wide-ranging options

The E2EW family features 1x, 3x, and 4x sensing ranges for M18 and M30 barrel sizes, with 3x and 4x now available for M12 barrel sizes.

Standardize on a single sensor when detecting iron and aluminum

The E2EW Series proximity sensors are equipped with Omron's unique technology for suppressing noise influence as well as the Pulse Response Detection (PRD) technology that detects current changes in sensing objects when pulsed currents are applied to coils. These technologies enable equal long-distance detection for iron and aluminum, thereby allowing manufacturers to use the same sensor for both materials.

The E2EW Series lasts 60 times longer than previous Omron models

Thanks to long-lasting spatter resistance, the new proximity sensors hold up exceptionally well in weld environments and other harsh situations. Omron’s proprietary coating adheres more strongly to sensor surfaces and reduces slag buildup, thereby reducing required maintenance and upkeep.
