Wire Presence Sensor Kit

Wire Presence Sensor Kit

The Wire Presence Sensor and Proximity Switch Kit is a highly recommended peripheral for robotic welding applications using bulk wire. The sensor detects and signals when the drum is empty, and the proximity switch connects to a PLC to stop the welding cycle when wire is depleted. This prevents unnecessary burn backs from occurring at the contact tip when the wire is finished, saving your consumables and reducing downtime. PNP or NPN proximity switch options available.
