Proximity Sensors

Non-Contact Switches are triggered by sensors.

Available in both surface mount technology and through-hole styles, non-contact capacitive switches detect changes in capacitance from proximity. Infrared version reduces influence of ambient light via internal compensating circuit, providing less false switching. They can be encased in plastic or glass, and sealed to IP68 for waterproofing. Without need to turn electromechanical contacts, units...
