Position Switches & Sensors


Product Code: 101095158

Discover the Schmersal BN 85 Series Magnetic Reed Switch, a precision position sensor designed for industrial applications requiring reliable and durable switching solutions. Encased in a robust thermoplastic block, this switch features a bistable contact mechanism that can be actuated from the front, offering flexibility in various setups. It operates within an activation distance range of 2 mm to 40 mm and is capable of handling a maximum switching voltage of 60 VAC or DC. Engineered for longevity, the switch supports a maximum switching current of 1 A and has a maximum switching capacity of 30 VA with reed contacts known for their long service life. Note that actuators are available but must be purchased separately to meet specific operational requirements. Installation is made easy with mounting options on C profile rails and compatibility with sheathed cable connections. The device operates effectively within a temperature range from 0°C to 75°C and maintains integrity in environments rated up to IP40, ensuring protection against solid objects larger than 1mm. Ideal for engineers seeking reliable sensing solutions, the Schmersal BN 85 Magnetic Reed Switch stands out for its adaptability and durability in demanding conditions.
