This inductive proximity sensor will detect the presence of a metallic object within 5mm of the surface of the sensor.

The detection distance may vary slightly depending on the shape, size, and type of metal the object is made of. It can detect through thin, non-metallic materials and has an LED indicator that turns on when the device is powered, and increases in brightness when an object is detected.

Product Features

  • Detects metallic objects
  • Standard Detecting Distance: 5mm
  • NPN Normally Open output
  • Requires a 6 to 36VDC Power Supply


This sensor connects to a Digital Input on any of the following products:

This is how you connect the 3528 to a Phidget board that does not have 12V power such as the 1018, 1012, 1202, and 1203 using our 12VDC Power Supply:

  • Connect the +12 wire from the Power Supply (that's the one with the white line) to the 3528 Brown wire.
  • Connect the 3528 Black wire to a Digital Input on the 1018.
  • Connect the Power supply Ground Wire and the 3528 Blue wire to the Digital Input Ground connector on the 1018.


Note: When the 3528 is connected to a 1012, it will behave as a Normally Close (NC) sensor instead of Normally Open (NO).

The 3528 can also be used with the 1144 - 12V Sensor Adapter if you want to connect to a device with an analog input without worrying about providing a 12V power supply.
