*1 The repeat accuracy and temperature characteristic are for a standard sensing object positioned midway through the
rated sensing distance.
*2 A sudden temperature rise even within the rated temperature range may degrade characteristics.
*3 For the Sensor Head only without the preamplifier (−10 to 60°C). With no icing or condensation.
*4 Do not operate in areas exposed to water vapor because the enclosure is not waterproof.
