SEACON offers a variety of Switches. The Proximity Switch uses magnets, either in attraction or repulsion, to open or close an electrical circuit. Several types are available to meet customer's needs. All switches are single pole double throw.

  • Load capacities
    • Light Duty (LD - 1 amp)
    • Standard Duty (SD - 7 amps)
  • Hermetically sealed
  • No O-rings or Gaskets
  • Single Pole DoubleThrow
  • Proximity Switch meets NAVSEA requirments for part number 5162424-101-11
  • Magnet Retainer meets NAVSEA requirements for part number 5062424-102-11

Materials

  • 316 Stainless Steel - Available for all series
  • Titanium - Available for all series

Quality

Configurations

  • AU-VM Series, AU-VME Series
    • Standard Proximity - The switch can be normally open or closed. When a magnet is presented the switch will either open or close the circuit.
    • SInking Hall Effect - The sensor is normally closed. When a magnet is present the sensor opens at a very high rate of speed.
    • Sinking/Sourcing Hall Effect - The switch is normally open and will gradually close as the magnet is brought closer to the switch. This is ideal for lining up two objects.

Design Ratings & Testing

  • Pressure rating:
    • 6,000 psi - VM-Series, VME Series
    • 10,000 psi - VME Series
  • Power load:
    • Light Duty = 7 Amps (115 VAC/28 VDC) - Available for all series.
    • Standard Duty = 7 Amps (115 VAC/28 VDC) - Available foa all series
    • Minimum cycles: All series greater than 50,000
    • Standard Temperature range: -65° to +400°F available for VM and VME series

Operation

  • Magnets in repulsion for AU

Qualifications

  • Proximity Switch meets NAVSEA requirements for part number 5162424-101-11
  • Magnet Retainer meets NAVSEA requirements for part number 5062424-102-11

Principle Of Operation

  • A Proximity Switch uses magnets, either in attraction or repulsion, to open or close an electrical circuit. Except fpr hall effect, all switches are single pole double throw.
