40 Year Reputation for Performance and Durability
“Sencon can line sensors were seen to be the best for ease of understanding and reliability. This is a testament to the trust placed in Sencon sensors as a result of long term customer experience.” (Line specifier for a major canmaking plant in Spain)

These are not standard proximity switches

Sencon can line sensors have special features designed to cope with the harsh environment of a canmaking line that ensure a practically indefinite life of precise performance with less downtime and improved productivity:

  • Sensing fields specially optimized for canmaking
  • Internally designed for maximum electronic stability
  • Immunity from static discharge
  • Maximum mechanical crush resistance
  • Supplied complete with T-bolts, brackets, and adjustment tool
