Ferrous and Non-Ferrous Cylindrical Proximity Sensor

The E2V-X provides long-distance detection of aluminum or iron, while mounted flush in metal.
  • Highly visible indicator
  • DC 3-wire proximity sensors: M12, M18, M30
  • Standard and Long-distance detection in pre-wired or connector models
  • Nickel-plated brass housing

Aluminum Detection Distance

1.5 to 2 Times Previous Models

Immunity against aluminum chips has enabled achieving long-distance detection of aluminum workpieces. The same detection has also been achieved for iron, allowing the E2V-X[] to be separated from workpieces made of either metal farther than any other Proximity Sensor.
Note:*In-house comparison of M18 Shielded Long-distance Models

Detection Made Visible

An operation indicator that is visible from any direction is provided as a standard feature. This indicator flashes under unstable conditions for easy installation condition verification at a glance.

Embeddable in Metal

The first Long-distance Sensor that is shielded. Possible to be completely embedded in metal.


XS2 Connector Cordsets with M12 watertight single-ended and extension cordsets.


XS3 Connector Cordsets with M8 single-ended and extension cordsets for reduced maintenance.


An innovative new lock structure makes connection extremely simple. The lock mechanism is internal, so it will no longer become jammed by sputtered fluids or dust. Also, the use of a movable lock bolt makes it possible to connect the Smartclick XS5 to a screw - Will work with Standard M12 Connectors.


XS5C/XS5G-D418 IDC type connectors have been specially developed for fast and easy connection without any special tools.


M12 Connector cordsets for AC voltage. The 3-wire cord sets have dual key-way cut outs and the 4-wire cordsets connector has 1 knoch to insure proper use with AC voltages.
