KCX to connect the DC 2-wire proximity sensor

Question

Question

Is it possible to connect the DC 2-wire proximity sensor APS7-18GMD-Z to the non-contact input of the KCX-4DM?

Answer

Answer

The DC 2-wire proximity sensor has a large leakage current when it gets turned off, making it unsuitable as an input sensor for the KCX series.
Since the input terminal of the KCX series is for positive logic only, select a DC 3-wire PNP open collector output sensor or a voltage output sensor with a low leakage current.
