Programmable magnetic switches
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.

Options and special information
- High protection class
IP67 when plugged in, for use in clean or dusty environments or in case of contact with water. Operability in case of contact with other media (coolant, acids, bases, etc.) is often given, however cannot be guaranteed by SCHUNK.
- Power supply
10 - 30 V DC at < 10% residual ripple
- 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.
