AS/NZS IEC 60947.5.6:2015 pdf download – Low-voltage switchgear and controlgear Part 5.6: Control circuit devices and switching elements—DC interface for proximity sensors and switching amplifiers (NAMUR).
1 Scope
This International Standard applies to proximity sensors connected for operation by a two-wire connecting cable to the control input of a switching amplifier. The switching amplifier contains a d.c source to supply the control circuit and is controlled by the variable internal resistance of the proximity sensor.
These devices can be used in an explosive atmosphere if they also comply with
IEC 60079-11.
NOTE These devices have been defined by the German organization Normenausschu für Mef- und Regelungstechnik (NAMUR) (Office for Standardization of Measurement and Regulation Techniques).
2 Normative references

For dated references, subsequent amendments to. or revisions of, any of these publications do not apply. However, parties to agreements based on this International Standard are encouraged to investigate the possibility of applying the most recent editions of the normative documents indicated below. For undated references, the latest edition of the normative document referred to applies. Members of IEC and ISO maintain registers of currently valid International Standards.

3 Definitions
For the purpose of this International Standard the following definitions apply.
proximity sensor
device which converts the travel of an influencing body relative to it into an output signal
NOTE 1 The proximity sensor is preferably contactless (e.g. inductive, capacitive, magnetic, photoelectric) NOTE 2 The proximity sensor may be operated with or without mechanical contact.
switching amplifier
device which converts the signal from the proximity sensor presented at the control input into
a binary output signal which may be produced e.g. by an electromagnetic relay or a semiconductor switching element
control circuit
system comprising the proximity sensor, the control input of the switching amplifier and the two-wire connecting cable
output signal of the proximity sensor
output current as a function of the variable internal resistance
distance/current characteristic of the proximity sensor
relationship of the output signal (the current value) in the steady state to the distance of the influencing body relative to the sensor. Both continuous and discontinuous characteristics are permitted (see 5.3 and 5.4, and figures 1 and 2)
actuating range (Al1)
range defined by four straight lines in the current-voltage graph of the control input of the switching amplifier to which is assigned a switching function of the switching amplifier.
There are three actuating ranges covered by the current-voltage characteristic of the control input (see figure 3, a. b and d)
change in the continuous characteristic of a proximity sensor in the actuating range (Al1) (see figure 1)
NOTE The slope can assume different values within the control span,
maximum-operating frequency of the proximity sensor
maximum switching frequency achieved through periodic influencing at which the limits of the actuating range (Al1) are reached (see figures 1 and 2)
switching current difference
change in control current within the actuating range (Al1) at which the switching amplifier changes its output signal (see figures 1. 2 and 3)
switching travel difference
travel of the influencing body which changes the output signal of the switching amplifier. With
a discontinuous characteristic of the proximity sensor, the switching travel difference is
identical to the control span As
line resistance
effective resistance of the two-wire connecting cable between the switching amplifier and the proximity sensor
