Series 8F Magnetic Reed Type Proximity Sensor

The Canfield Connector Series 8F is a compact yet rugged magnetic reed type proximity sensor designed for rigorous applications where critical magnetic sensing is needed. The tough nylon shell is over-molded with polyurethane to create an environmentally resilient seal from the elements and is rated to IP67. The compact size and cylindrical shape are ideal for mounting in a simple hole or cylindrical shape. There is a tab mounting version also available. The 8F can be mounted solidly and fit into many common magnetic sensing applications. Offered standard with 9ft. cord or an M8 quick connect connector, the switch is also available in either normally open or normally closed switch types.

Series 8E Low Current Magnetic Sensor

The Canfield Connector Series 8E is a linear actuator magnetic sensor designed for harsh industrial applications. With mounting styles for tie rod or round type linear actuators, the 8E features an all encapsulated body that is covered by a metal housing for strength. The switch is available in reed or electronic versions and electrical connection is made by use of 9 ft. PVC or 8mm quick connect male pigtail. The 8E is water resistant and dust tight to IP67.

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.

Series 7000 Reed and Electronic Sensors for Air Cylinders

Standard clamp and switch arrangement

The Canfield Series 7000 proximity sensors are used to sense position on cylinders. They accommodate 2 to 8 inch bore tie rod cylinders or 3/4 to 4 inch round cylinders. This proven design is rugged yet cost effective. The Series 7000 boasts the largest number of custom circuits to match applications found in the market. Examples include; 1 or 4 Amp reed switches, normally open, normally closed or SPDT switch types, reed or electronic sensing elements in the same package style, and the industry’s first 120 VAC Hall sensor. A wide range of enclosures and connector options are available. To reduce stocking requirements, two clamp options feature a self-adjusting clamp for NFPA and other tie rod cylinders from 2 to 8 inch bore. Another clamp option features a band clamp from 3/4 to 4 inch round cylinders.


Canfield Connector releases Series 8WF position sensors

January 5, 2011 – Canfield Connector releases Series 8WF weld field immune position sensors, which easily fit on the smallest round, tie-rod, or extruded cylinders. The compact magnetic sensors are designed for sensing position magnetic pistons on pneumatic actuators while ignoring electro-magnetic pulses generated from AC weld fields.

The 8WF features extremely consistent repeatability, reverse polarity protection, and a wide voltage range. A high intensity LED light is standard on most models.
The Series 8WF is compatible with IS (Intrinsically Safe) barriers as well as most corrosive and washdown applications and the rugged stainless steel and nylon enclosure has an encapsulated circuit for wet environments. They operate in a temperature range from -20° to +80°C and most versions are designed to meet NEMA 4/IP 65 specifications.
