Things To Consider

Cross-Reference Alternatives

Autonics MPNs cross individual references to the equivalent Fervi and Extech model numbers for stepper motors, digital panel thermometers and tachometers. So, if you're looking for a competitor item that is either out of stock or obsolete, chances are Raptor Supplies has the equivalent Autonics product available.


These Autonics products range from small to large sizes. They may require careful packaging as some items might get damaged while shipping. Hence, the brand's items are delivered by courier shipment and air freight for minimum downtime.

About Autonics

The Autonics catalogue comprises photoelectric sensors, fibre optic sensors, area sensors,rotary encoders, proximity sensors and pressure sensors. The brand's photoelectric sensors are designed for detecting the absence, presence or distance of objects using a light transmitter and receiver. These sensors feature an NPN, PNP or relay circuit and can operate at temperatures ranging between -25 & 65 degrees F. Autonics also offers two and five-phase stepper motors that can convert electrical energy into rotational energy.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does a proximity sensor do?

Proximity sensors are suitable for detecting or sensing the presence of nearby objects (metallic or non-metallic) without needing physical contact. They operate on parameters like sensors, sound, light, infrared radiation (IR) & electromagnetic fields to sense a target over a range of 3 to 30 mm.

What is the function of rotary encoders?

These sensors detect position and speed by converting rotational mechanical displacements into electrical signals. They are installed in high-speed motors to detect the motor speed and angle for controlling the rotation of the motor.

What is a solid state relay?

A solid state relay (SSR) is an electronic switching device that switches on / off when an external voltage (AC or DC) is applied across its control terminals. This relay effectively eliminates the arching, electrical noise and contact bounce associated with conventional mechanical relays and inductive loads.
