New series 52 2N1 ProxSensor line of valve status monitors from Bray Controls now includes AS-i, DeviceNet, and Profibus DP network connectivity. 2N1 sensors combine two proximity sensors in one compact, self-contained, sealed enclosure. Bray says these valve status monitors deliver rapid, bounce-free electronic valve signaling required for PLC, computer, and solid-state circuitry used in process control and information networks. These Bus Intelligent 2N1 ProxSensors offer all the features of dc and ac units, plus network protocol communication and remote access to valve position and diagnostics. The Series 52 units are engineered to be impervious to vibration, moisture, and most chemical and corrosive agents, since all internal components are completely encapsulated with epoxy resin inside the rigid polymer enclosure. www.bray.com Bray Controls
