Electronic magnetic switch
A magnetic switch is used for monitoring the status of automation components. They detect the approach of a magnet without contact and above a certain switching value, they put out a digital signal.

Advantages – Your benefits

  • Installation into the sensor groove
    for space-saving, easy, and fast assembly on the product
  • Version with LED display
    for control of the switching position directly at the sensor
  • Version with standard plug connector
    for fast and easy exchangeability of the extension cable

Options and special information

  • Functional description
    Magnetic switches respond to magnetic fields. In the sensor, two shielded and two non-shielded resistors are combined with a bridge connection. In case of presence of a magnetic field, a large signal will be obtained, which is proportional to the size of the magnetic field. Starting from a certain threshold, an output signal is switched via a comparator, and the sensor responses.
  • Signal output and switching type
    The sensors are available in a design with signal output of closer and in the switching types PNP (J02P) and NPN (J02N).
  • Versions with connector or cable end
    The sensor is available in the versions with a plug connector (30 cm cable, M8 connector) or open cable outlet (2 m cable, open strands).
  • Sources 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.
