Proximity Switches are available in models using high-frequency oscillation to detect ferrous and non-ferrous metal objects and in capacitive models to detect non-metal objects. Models are available with environment resistance, heat resistance, resistance to chemicals, and resistance to water.
Magnetic field switches are activated by magnetic fields and are used, in particular, for the detection of the piston position in pneumatic cylinders. Using a patented operating principle, the magnetic field switches can be mounted on any type of standard cylinder, where they capture permanent magnets on pistons error-free. The switches operate wear-free, are short-circuit proof, rugged and IP67 rated. We also offer solutions for use in welding or hazardous areas as well as for analog queries.
