Compact Magnetic Reed Sensors

Canfield 8FCanfield Connector has designed its 8F Series reed-type proximity sensor for applications in which critical magnetic sensing is required. This compact sensor additionally provides:

  • A tough nylon shell that is over-molded with polyurethane to create an environmentally resilient seal from the elements.
  • A temperature range from -20° to 80°C.
  • A shock resistance to 30 G and vibration resistance to 20G, plus a resistance to corrosion and wash-down applications.
  • Your selection from either a normally open or closed switch.
  • A 9-foot cord or an M8 quick-connect connector.
  • Compatibility with intrinsically safe barriers.
  • A cylindrical shape ideal for mounting in either a simple hole or cylindrical opening, as well as the flexibility to fit most space requirements.
  • A NEMA 6 and IP-67 rating. 
  • Availability in a tab-mount version.
