Proximity Inductive Sensor Range 8mm 6-36V - M12

The Inductive Sensor Probe LJ12A3-8-Z/BX is capable of detecting metal without contact, and is often used in 3D printers to read or adjust the level of the Print Bed, including the RAMPS 1.4-based machines. This sensor helps identify any warping or sagging of a print bed and provides the necessary data for the firmware to readjust the Z endstop to accommodate for these subtle differences in height.

The benefits that this sensor provides includes better first-layer adhesion on large or simultaneous prints, greater accuracy for the firmware to print ultra-thin layers, as well as less hassle as you don’t need to manually readjust your Z endstop as the bed subtly warps over time. Just remember, however, that because this is an induction sensor, it will only work with metal print beds. The installation may also require some firmware modifications, which can be found on the RepRap Wiki, although this is relatively simple for any veteran Maker or 3D printer enthusiast.

Typical Application

Equipping your 3D Printers with automatic bed levelling systems is one of the easiest ways to enhance the efficiency and convenience of your 3D Printing adventures, and helps to save you time as well as money in a few different ways.

In terms of time savings, these sensors mean that you won’t have to manually inspect each of the points on the heatbed to see if they are all the right height, and can instead simply perform the automatic bed levelling task and make quick adjustments accordingly. In terms of cost savings, these sensors will help you get your first layer adhesion right every time, which will of course save on 3D Filament expenses and reduce the number of totally failed prints that happen.

There are few upgrades that offer as many benefits as these LJ12A3-8-Z-BX Inductive Sensor Probes do, and at such a low price they are without a doubt one of the best investments you can make. Not only do these sensors offer time and cost saving advantages, but they also help to improve overall print quality and consistency, ensuring that you will never be plagued by unlevelled beds again.
