Standex-Meder Electronics announces its new MK28 vane-operated sensors for harsh environments. These sensors combine the reed sensor and actuator magnet in the same housing and are ideal for applications in the automotive, industrial automation equipment and robotics industries. The sensor is composed of a magnetic reed switch and actuation occurs when a suitable vane passes through the slot between the actuator magnet and the switch. The sensor is available in three versions: normally open, normally closed and changeover. All versions can be enclosed in custom-tooled housing to meet customer specifications and all internal PCBs are manufactured using in-house SMT assembly processes for utmost quality.
