Highlights

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 0.75 mm pitch threaded barrel for fine adjustment Actuator magnet available in same housing

Description

This M8 threaded brass sensor is built for mounting in threaded holes and switch up to 60W loads. 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. Our products are completely Lead-free and conform to the RoHS directive. 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.
