♦ Does not require power for operation ♦ Omni-polar device; actuates with either pole of magnet ♦ Normally Open contact ♦ Sputtered Ruthenium contact ♦ Two magnetic sensitivity bands ♦ RoHS Compliant and Lead-free ♦ Not Sensitive to ESD ♦ Various types of leads and connectors available ♦
These ultra-miniature proximity sensors are suitable for low level switching applications, and have a size advantage over the other cylindrical sensors. Various activating distances are available depending on the magnet and the AT band used. This sensor can be supplied with non-standard connectors on request. All sensors are tested 100% for operate and release AT, Contact Resistance and Variable Contact Resistance before packing. Our products are completely Lead-free and conform to the RoHS directive.
This magnetic proximity sensor is suitable for use in the following applications and in many others: dentists drills, model airplanes, musical greeting cards, key in ignition detection, feeding tubes, hotel card readers, sun visor…

Denotes MS-212 proximity sensor in 10-15 Operate AT, with 500 mm cable length and Tinned Cable ends.
A few examples of magnet actuation are shown above. Cylindrical proximity sensors can be used in pneumatic cylinder end position sensing applications. Being an omnipolar device, this sensor can be actuated with either a north pole or a south pole or both. Choosing the right AT band, magnet strength, and operating axis, will restrict the number of operates and releases to one.
