1. Cushion mount bracket
This provides up to 10 mm of protection against overtravel of the target. It consists of two sleeves made of anodized aluminum and nickel-plated jam nuts. A fiberglass-reinforced nylon material is used to create the end cap, which is tapered at 30° to protect the sensor face from shearing. Available for 8 mm (CM-08), 12 mm (CM-12), 18 mm (CM-18), and 30 mm (CM-30) diameter cylindrical sensors.
2. Block cushion mount
This provides surface-mountable protection against accidental target contact for standard shielded inductive sensors. The block-shaped outer housing includes an inner sleeve that secures the sensor and a plastic protective cap for the sensor face. Available for 8 mm (BCM-08), 12 mm (BCM-12), and 18 mm (BCM-18) diameter cylindrical sensors.
3. End stop adapter
Using a hardened screw and spring-loaded piston, this adapter threads over the sensor, turning a standard 8 mm diameter, shielded, inductive sensor into a durable mechanical stop switch. These adapters are useful for applications where end-of-travel signals are required and are available in 25 mm (ES-08-25) and 50 mm (ES-08-50) lengths.
