PRODUCT OVERVIEW

The P300 is an inductive sensor designed to detect shaft speed, shaft position, gate position, or object 

presence. No contact is made between the sensor and the object being monitored.
Maximum range of ferrous targets is 8 mm (5/16”) and for non-ferrous targets is 5 mm (6/16”), assuming a 

20 mm (3/4”) diameter target.  Smaller targets may be used but operating distances will be reduced.Three 

different sensor outputs are available.  

P3003V10AI and P3004V10AI sensors have a two-wire interface and have an internal transistor which 

either switches to open or closed state when target is present (see page 10). P3003V34AI has an isolated 

transistor and the output is determined by the orientation of the positive and negative supply connections 

(page 10). 
All units are fully encapsulated and come with a 3m cable lead. Two LED’s show power supply and input 

status.

The P300 should be wired as shown in the connections diagram on page 10.  

The P300 Proximity Switch must be wired through a load/resistor (see standard wiring diagram) and not 

directly to supply voltage. The supply polarity is not important and the load can be connected in either wire.

Different P300 models have different connections, so make sure to use the correct diagram for your model.  
Cable length can be extended to virtually any distance required. The proximity sensor is well protected 

against electrical interference, but if long cable runs are used in very noisy environments, the cabling 

should be segregated from any high current carrying and ideally shielded cables should be used for long-

distance runs.  

Red LED (output) indicates target sensed.
IMPORTANT:

The sensing face of the sensor, should overhang at least 30mm from any metalwork that the unit is fixed 

to, otherwise the unit will stay in the “ON” state.  Ensure that any background metalwork, behind the target 

to be sensed, is at least 15mm behind the target.  This will prevent the proximity sensor from detecting that 

background metalwork.  Illustration A below denotes sensing ranges for ferrous and non-ferrous targets.

STANDARD WIRING DIAGRAM

All wiring must be In accordance with local and national electrical codes and should be undertaken by an 

experienced and qualified electrician.
Where necessary, use dust/liquid tight flexible metal conduit with approved fittings to protect the sensor 

cables.  Use rigid metal conduit to protect the cables from the sensors to the control unit.  Conduit systems 

can channel water due to ingress and condensation directly to sensors and sensor connections which 

over time will adversely affect the performance of the system.  As such, the installation of low point conduit 

drains is recommended for all sensors.

P3004V10AI

WARNING

1500A capable fuse with 500mA maximum rating 

MUST be used for each sensor in order to comply 

with ATEX wiring regulations.

WARNING

If  the  system  does  not  immediately  shutdown  as  expected  or  alarm  as  required,  then  remove  the 

machine from service until the problem has been diagnosed and corrected.

TESTING AND COMMISSIONING

1.  Check that the unit is correctly installed (see standard wiring diagram).

2.  Check that the distance between the target, stud or bolt head and sensing face of P300 is within the  

     minimum distance specified.

3.  Start up machine.

4.  If monitoring for speed see A, for proximity monitoring see B -
     A.  If the P300 is being used to monitor speed, 4B’s SpeedMaster™ calibration and testing device 

          can be used to insure the P300 shuts down the machine at the correct percentage of slip.  Shut 

          down will depend on your specific monitoring setup.  4B recommends an instant shutdown on any 

          belts slipping 20% or more of normal speed.

     B.  If the P300 is being used as a proximity switch, be sure that the target is not within range of the  

          sensor prior to testing.  Use a metal putty knife or a small piece of metal and place it between the  

          sensing face of the P300 and the target.  This will cause the sensor to energize the output, and       

          both the green and red LEDs will go on.  Removing the putty knife will de-energize the output    

          signal and both LEDs will go off.  

PAGE 12

SPEEDMASTER™

The  SpeedMaster™ with Pulse Pilot is the only device that 

accurately tests the calibration of a speed switch, and allows 

testing of the alarm and shutdown features of the sensor while 

installed on the machine shaft.
The SpeedMaster™ operates in two modes.  Input mode is used 

to measure the pulse rate at normal speed.  Output mode will 

allow the user to input pulses to the sensor for testing purposes.
The Pulse Pilot fits between the gap between the sensor and 

the target.  The Pulse Pilot will have no effect on the operation 

of the speed switch until it is connected to the SpeedMaster™ 

and set to “output” mode.
