Why Bently Sensors?

More than 60 years ago Don Bently launched his first industrial product: the eddy current proximity sensor. The decades since that achievement have seen the quality and diversity of our proximity sensors evolve to include transducers that detect the presence of acceleration, velocity, and pressure.

Today’s high-performance eddy current proximity sensors deliver continuous condition monitoring information and trip monitored machines when needed to support a proactive maintenance program and machinery diagnostics.

Our industry-leading proximity solutions offer superior performance and interchangeability in harsh environments with full API 670 compliance on applicable options. Here are a few benefits of our proximity sensor systems:

  • Reduces Costs - When you use our proximity sensors as part of your plant-wide monitoring program, your costs associated with insurance, maintenance, and unscheduled repairs will go down significantly
  • Increases Revenue - Conversely, when you use our proximity sensors as part of your plant-wide monitoring program, revenue will increase through increased uptime and production quality.
  • Minimizes Unplanned Outages - You can convert unplanned and costly outages into planned, manageable downtime.

Product Specifications

  • 3300 XL 8mm Proximity Transducer System
    • 8mm Proximity Sensor - 3300 XL Proximitor Sensor

      The 3300 XL Proximitor Sensor incorporates numerous improvements over previous designs. Its physical packaging allows you to use it in high-density DIN-rail installations.

      You can also mount the sensor in a traditional panel mount configuration, where it shares an identical 4-hole mounting “footprint” with older Proximitor Sensor designs.

      The mounting base for either option provides electrical isolation and eliminates the need for separate isolator plates.

      The 3300 XL Proximitor Sensor is highly immune to radio frequency interference, allowing you to install it in fiberglass housings without adverse effects from nearby radio frequency signals. The 3300 XL Proximitor Sensor’s improved RFI/EMI immunity satisfies European CE mark approvals without requiring special shielded conduit or metallic housings, resulting in lower installation costs and complexity.

      The 3300 XL’s SpringLoc terminal strips require no special installation tools and facilitate faster, more robust field wiring connections by eliminating screwtype clamping mechanisms that can loosen.

    • Proximitor Sensor Temperature Range

      Operating Temperature -52°C to +100°C (-62°F to +212°F)

      Storage Temperature -52 °C to +105 °C (-62 °F to +221 °F)

      Probe Relative Humidity -  Less than a 3% change in Average Scale Factor (ASF) when tested in 93% humidity in accordance with IEC standard 68 2 3 for up to 56 days.
