PF Solid State Proximity Sensor

Quick Overview

  • Non-contact, solid state device
  • Unipolar switchpoint: a south pole of sufficient strength turns output on (Logic Low). Removal of magnetic field turns output off.
  • On board regulator allows operation with supply voltages of 3 to 24 VDC
  • Current sinking output
  • 20 mA continuous operation
  • Reverse polarity protection
  • Temperature compensated
  • Operates from -40°C to 125°C
  • Rugged thermoplastic housing
