This screw mountable sensor can be mounted with M3 screws and can switch moderate loads of 10W. It can be actuated on the actuating side as shown below, by any Ferro-magnetic material that is longer than the length of the sensor. Actuation distance is 3.0 – 8.0 mm and Release distance is 4.0 – 10.0 mm. Unlike other standard Magnet Sensors, an actuating magnet is not require. All sensors are tested 100% for actuating distance before packing. Click to download this product data sheet as a PDF.
