Series 9Q Magnetic Proximity Switch

The Canfield Connector Series 9Q is a magnetic proximity switch that is engineered to fit into extruded actuators that are made with a “T” slot. The unique design of the 9Q enables it to be installed anywhere along the slot and assembled in place without taking off the actuator end-cap. The rugged polyurethane encapsulated switch features an innovative design that incorporates a hard nylon shell. The switches are available in reed or electronic sensing and feature surge suppression and on board indicator light standard. Offered as a flying lead or 8mm quick connect, the sensors are quickly and easily wired in to any application. The sensors meet NEMA 6 / IP67 environmental specifications and are corrosion and wash-down compatible. This sensor is proudly made in the USA.
