What do the suffixes A, B, C, D, G, T or K indicate when applied to certain XS1 inductive proximity sensors?

The suffixes A, B, C, D, G, T or K are used to indicate the connection method of the sensor, it does not affect the product specifications, for instance Sn will be the same whatever the connection method.
A part number (e.g. XS1M30MA230) without a suffix indicates that the sensor is standard pre-wired connection via cable, length 2 m. 

Suffix letters are as follows;

  • A: connection via connector, 3 pin, terminal capacity 0.75mm²
  • B: connection via screw terminal block, terminal capacity 1.5 mm², 11P cable gland for 8 to 10 mm diameter cable
  • C: connection via connector, DIN43650A, 4 pin, terminal capacity 1 mm²  
  • D: connection via M12 connector, 4 pin, terminal capacity 0.25 mm²  
  • G: connection via M18 connector, 4 pin, terminal capacity 1.5 mm²
  • T : connection via 717 connector, 5 pin, terminal capacity 1.5 mm²
  • K: connection via 1/2" 20UNF connector, 3 pin, terminal capacity 0.34 mm²

Note: Not all suffixes are available on all sensor types, please refer to latest catalogue for full details.
