Prox sensors - will these work with mach setup
« on: September 13, 2007, 02:34:14 PM »
Hi all,

my turn for some help,

I have 2 of these prox sensors

"http://www.ifmefector.com/ifmus/web/dsfs!IE5222.html"

What I want to know is how would I connect them up to my bob as homing sensors, the 2 wire setup is confusing me, 3 wires I can understand.

Graham.

Its an odd one that the link is correct, but the! in the link seems to confuse the browser, cutting and pasting seems to work.

I don't see why they won't work Graham. Says you can wire them for No or NC. Also says they can be either NPN or PNP. Looks like for normally closed you will run the black lead to + and the white to ground.
