FM-324, Miniature Ferro-magnetic Metal Detection Sensor
This screw mountable sensor can be mounted with M3 screws and can switch moderate loads of 10W. Any Ferro-magnetic material is all this is required to operate the sensor from the actuating side as shown in the sketch, and a permanent magnet is not required. The actuating distance may vary depending on the thickness and size of the ferro-magnetic material. All sensors are tested 100% for actuating distance.
