VariKont Inductive Sensor with Active Shielding Technology—High Switching Distances in All Installation Situations

VariKont Inductive Sensor with Active Shielding Technology—High Switching Distances in All Installation Situations

Inductive sensors are still the first choice for detecting metallic objects. However, conventional inductive proximity sensors have one thing in common: if the distance to the damping element increases, the sensor becomes more sensitive to the detection object, and the metal surrounding the installation affects the switching distance.

Arc-Flash Knowledge Center

While an arc flash is sometimes used interchangeably with “arc fault”, an arc flash is more accurately defined as the light produced during an arc fault. An arc fault is a type of electrical fault that results from the breakdown of an insulating medium between two conductors where the energy is enough to sustain an arc across the insulator (often air) and can cause extreme amounts of light (arc flash), immense heat upwards of 19,000 °C, and a resulting explosive pressure wave (arc blast).
