Cylinder Proximity Sensors
Series 8D - Reed & Electronic Magnetic Sensors
The Canfield Connector Series 8D is a robust yet compact switch designed to sense position of pneumatic cylinders with magnetic pistons. The switch features an all encapsulated design with a metal over housing that protects the internal components from harsh environments. The switch comes in reed, or electronic versions and has either 9 ft. PVC or 8mm quick connect male pigtail A broad range of clamping styles make this a very versatile alternative for sensing round or tie rod type linear actuator. The switch comes standard with an indicator light that shows switching condition.
