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.
