9D – Fabco, Numatics, Rotomation Grooves

The Canfield Connector Series 9D is a universal, ultra-small, magnetic proximity switch available in both solid state electronic and reed styles. These sensors are designed to fit the most stringent space requirements by use of a standard .250 inch dovetail slot. Many other mounting options are also available. The electronic sensor exhibits greater sensitivity to magnetism with reduced dead-band and hysteresis as compared to competitive devices. The reed sensor offers a wide operating voltage range. The molded switch has an on board indicator light that can be viewed from wide angles. Standard connection to the sensor is provided by a 9 ft. PVC or 8mm quick connect male pigtail. The rugged, fully encapsulated switch is shipped with mounting hardware ready for installation.

Series 7C Hugh Current Proximity Sensor

The Canfield Series 7C proximity sensors are used to sense position on pneumatic actuators equipped with magnetic pistons from 2″ to 8″ bore. This proven design is rugged yet cost effective. All switches feature a self-adjusting clamp that grips standard NFPA and custom cylinders eliminating stocking requirements of many clamps for different bore sizes. The Series 7C 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, not to mention the industry’s first 120 VAC Hall sensor. The low cost 7C features a ½” conduit hub and wire lead to meet stringent electrical codes in certain regions and applications.

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 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 introduces Series 8F Magnetic Reed Sensor

 March 15, 2011 – Canfield Connector’s Series 8F small, rugged reed type proximity sensor is designed for applications where critical magnetic sensing is required.  This compact magnetic sensor is small enough to fit most space requirements and its cylindrical shape is ideal for mounting in either a simple hole or cylindrical opening.  The 8F has a tough nylon shell that is over-molded with polyurethane to create an environmentally resilient seal from the elements, is corrosion and washdown resistant, compatible with IS (Intrinsically Safe) barriers and is NEMA 6 and IP67 rated.  Also available in a tab mount version, the 8F can operate in a temperature range from -20° to + 80°C, is shock resistant to 30G and vibration resistant to 20G. A 9 foot cord or an M8 quick connect connector is standard and the 8F is available with either a normally open or normally closed switch type.
