Compact Weld Field Electronic Sensors Available

By DE Editors

Canfield Connector’s Series 8WF weld field immune electronic sensors, which fit on small round, tie-rod, or extruded cylinders, are magnetic sensors designed for sensing the position of magnetic pistons on pneumatic actuators while ignoring electro-magnetic pulses generated from AC weld fields. 

The 8WF features consistent repeatability, reverse polarity protection, and a wide voltage range, according to the company.  An LED light is standard on most models.  The Series 8WF is compatible with IS (Intrinsically Safe) barriers as well as most corrosive and washdown applications, and the stainless steel and nylon enclosure has an encapsulated circuit for wet environments.  They operate in a temperature range from -20° to +80°C and most versions are designed to meet NEMA 4/IP 65 specifications.
