CAD & Training Manuals
We publish full product manuals and downloadable CAD models for all Kanson Magnetic Proximity Switches.
Magnetic Proximity Switches
Kanson ISSC Magnetic Proximity Switches and sensors are used to detect the presence of permanent magnets. Magnetic Proximity Switches feature two ferro-magnetic reeds enclosed in an inert gas. When the proximity switch nears a permanent magnet, the reeds are magnetically brought together to create a measurable electrical contact.
This operating principle provides Magnetic Proximity Switches with the ability to detect magnets from any angle, i.e. perpendicular, parallel, rotational travel or nose-to-nose.
Magnetic Proximity Sensor Applications
Magnetic Proximity Sensors are ideal for speed and movement detection of industrial equipment or any application requiring precise measurement of rotating and/or actuating machinery.
Kanson ISSC Magnetic Proximity Sensors are fully enclosed in impermeable cylindrical or rectangular plastic housing to ensure resistance against corrosion and oxidation. Reed sensors are encased in heavy-duty glass bulbs to protect against dust.
