Metal Detection Sensors

Metal detection reed sensor products are a great alternative to inductive proximity sensors. Available in screw fastened flange mount and PCB through-hole (THT) designs, these ferromagnetic metal detection sensors are suitable for a wide range of applications including but not limited to: end travel sensing limit switches, position control, and security uses such as door and window control, opening recognition contact and metal fire protection doors. Choose from normally open or normally closed contact forms.
