Normally Open Form A contact 30.0W 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 leads and connectors available Actuator magnet available in same housing


This MS-328 screw mountable sensor can be mounted with M3 screws and can switch loads of up to 30W. It is particularly useful in industrial applications where distance adjustments need to be made every now and then. 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. 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.
