Normally Open Form A contact 10.0W Contact Rating Does not require power for operation Omni-polar device; actuates with either pole of magnet Sputtered Ruthenium contact Three magnetic sensitivity bands RoHS Compliant and Lead-free Not Sensitive to ESD Various types of cables and connectors available Special versions withstand 1m drop test without change in sensitivity


These cylindrical sensors are suitable for switching up to 30W line voltage. 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 AT, Release AT, Static Contact Resistance and Variable Contact Resistance before packing. 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.
