Steel Sensor Features

  • Hermetically sealed contacts for extended operation
  • Multiple designs provide actuation from any side, so these sensors can fit virtually anywhere
  • No actuator is required for activation, greatly reducing overall footprint of sensor
  • Rugged, heavy-duty mounting flange is thicker than competitive sensors, and less susceptible to breakage in extreme applications
  • Horizontal mounting slots in the housing make the trip point adjustable to specific applications

When space is a premium, we have the answer

PRX+11200, 11300 and 11400 are up to 80% smaller than other designs, so they fit in tight spots where other ferrous metal sensors can’t

Applications

  • Limit sensing
  • Position sensing
  • Safety and interlock sensing
  • Commercial lawn mowers
  • Fire protection doors
  • Control function in plant and utility vehicles

A Brief History of the Reed Switch

A reed switch is an electrical relay operated by an applied magnetic field. While it may just look like a piece of glass with leads protruding from it, it is an intensely engineered device that works in amazing ways with customization methods employed for their use in many applications. Nearly all reed switches work on … Continued
