Recessed Magnetic Sensor
Use this sensor and magnet when you want to detect when an object is placed in a particular location. The magnet and sensor can be easily embedded into almost any surface. Simply drill a 3/8" hole and press them in. There are no wires to splice, simply insert your wires into the sensor's terminal block.
The sensor closes its contact when the magnet is about 1/2" away. When paired with our controllers this will turn the controller's input ON when the magnet is on the sensor, or OFF when the magnet is away from the sensor. If you want to trigger the controller when the object is moved away from the sensor you will have to enable the normally-closed input setting on the controller.
