In September 2010, Schneider Electric will be obsoleting select legacy inductive proximity sensors and will be replacing them with a newer line of products. The most common proximity sensors that will be affected are part numbers beginning with XS1, XS2 and XS3.

This conversion tool will help create a smooth transition during the process of eliminating the specified Telemecanique sensors. The cross reference tool will list soon-to-be obsolete Telemecanique sensors along with new and improved products and specific comments regarding particular differences in part numbers.

Improved board designs, manufacturing innovations and marketing opportunities are driving this obsolescence program. The replacement Telemecanique sensors will be RoHs compliant. Advancements in the new products will include excellent noise immunity, longer ranges, better protection, wide temperature ranges and other various items. Pricing will be available through My Schneider, Quote to Cash, and by calling Customer Service.
