DescriptionA magnetic switch is used for monitoring the status of automation components.They detect the magnets fixed inside the component without contact. In addition to further process data, the sensor outputs the process of the magnetic field via the IO-Link interface.
Advantages – Your benefitsControl via IO-Link
for the evaluation of data such as temperature, evaluation quality or the sensor identification
leads to a compact design and enables the use of cables with standard plug connectors
Suitable for narrow installation spaces
due to teaching via IO-Link interface
Version with LED display
is used to indicate the status of the IO-Link connection
for space-saving, easy, and fast assembly on the product
Options and special informationSources of interference
Sensors can be influenced by other magnetic fields in the immediate vicinity. Disturbing magnetic fields can be generated by motors, electric welders, permanent magnets or magnetized material (so-called soft magnets) such as hexagon socket wrenches, chips, etc.
High protection class
IP67 when plugged in, for use in clean or dusty environments or in case of contact with water. Operability in case of contact with other media (coolant, acids, bases, etc.) is often given, however cannot be guaranteed by SCHUNK.
