The cylindrical Sensor is a compact and reliable magnetic sensing solution. It is specifically designed for applications that require non-contact detection of a magnet. With its cylindrical shape, this sensor offers easy integration and installation in various industrial systems and holes. The sensor features a hermetically sealed reed switch, providing excellent protection against harsh environments. Its durable housing ensures long-lasting performance and resistance to dust, moisture, and vibration.

The cylindrical sensor operates based on the principle of reed switches, using a magnetic field to control its state. When a metallic object, such as a magnet, approaches the sensor, the reed switch inside the sensor closes, generating an electrical signal. This signal can be utilized for various purposes, such as proximity detection and position sensing.

One of the key advantages of the cylindrical sensor is its high sensitivity, allowing for precise and accurate detection of objects. It offers a wide operating temperature range, making it suitable for use in extreme conditions. Additionally, this sensor has a high switching frequency, enabling rapid response times for critical applications.

These Cylindrical Magnet Sensors are available from the smallest 2.5 mm diameter ultra-miniature packages to the standard 6.0 mm diameter packages, and matching actuators, are also available. The MS-212 having a 2.6 mm diameter housing, is suitable for use in very tiny applications such as dentists drills, and feeding tubes, the MS-214 and MS-216 Sensors are suitable for use in general purpose white goods applications and the MS-216-L which withstands higher shock and vibration limits, is suitable for use in automotive applications.

All these sensors come in two versions, one for switching low level 10 W loads, and the other, for switching up to 60 W line voltage loads. Product pages list drawing, complete electrical and miscellaneous specifications,  Actuation distances, Usage notes and application examples.
