The Canfield Connector Series 9T is a compact yet robust switch used to sense position of magnetic pistons designed into aluminum extrusion type linear actuators. The 9T fits a 7.2mm X 3.9mm rectangular groove which is designed into the actuator body. Available in reed or electronic versions, the 9T features standard 9 ft. PVC or 8mm quick connect male pigtail, and are rated IP-67 against the ingress of dust and water.
The Series 9C is a compact, universal, magnetically operated proximity switch commonly used on aluminum extruded profile type linear actuators equipped with magnetic pistons. The switches are available in both reed and electronic styles and made to fit into a 4mm key hole type slot. Position fixing is accomplished by means of a screw that is supplied in the switch body. The on board indicator light shows instant switch diagnostics to minimize downtime and facilitate installation and can be seen from wide angles. Available in the standard 9 ft. PVC wired or optional 8mm quick connect, the switch can handle AC or DC current in several configurations. The 9C is assembled in engineered polymers and designed to meet NEMA 6 / IP 67 environmental specifications.
The Canfield Connector Series 8WS reed and electronic magnet sensors are rugged yet compact switches used to sense position on pneumatic actuators equipped with a magnetic piston and 12mm dovetail groove. The switch can be slipped in and tightened from anywhere along the groove that is fabricated into the cylinder wall or clamping system. The switch features a die cast holder which clamps to the cylinder groove while the electronics are fully encapsulated and resistance to environment. These sensors offer a wide voltage range from 0-120 V AC/DC 50/60Hz and have a up to a 500 mA switching current rating. The switch has a high intensity indicator light which indicates power to the switch and load. The switch comes standard with 9 ft. PVC or 8mm quick connect male pigtail.
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.
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.
