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.

Canfield Connector Series 7000 – High Current Reed Switch

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. Awide 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 9D Series Sensor for 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.

9C – Bimba, Compact Air, DE-STA-CO, Robohand, SMC Grooves

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.

Fits: Bimba, Compact Air, DE-STA-CO, Robohand, SMC cylinder grooves
