Important Update: Omron E2A3 Product Phase Out

Due to the increasing demands and requirements on proximity sensors in industrial environments, Omron has analysed their existing range of Inductive’s and have decided to phase out their E2A3 product family at the end of December 2020. However, in doing so, Omron has improved its portfolio with the E2E NEXT range.

Here at Kempston Controls, we will continue to hold the existing range until all stock is sold while also offering the replacement models.

The new E2E NEXT series of proximity sensors.

One of the World’s leading authorities on the design and manufacture of industrial automation equipment have replaced the existing range with new E2E NEXT series. These new additions boast the World’s longest sensing distance1 with the addition of future-proof IO-Link communication features.
