Kanson ISSC Magnetic Proximity Switches and sensors are used to detect the presence of permanent magnets. Magnetic Proximity Switches feature two ferro-magnetic reeds enclosed in an inert gas. When the proximity switch nears a permanent magnet, the reeds are magnetically brought together to create a measurable electrical contact.

This operating principle provides Magnetic Proximity Switches with the ability to detect magnets from any angle, i.e. perpendicular, parallel, rotational travel or nose-to-nose.


Magnetic Proximity Sensors are ideal for speed and movement detection of industrial equipment or any application requiring precise measurement of rotating and/or actuating machinery.


Kanson ISSC Magnetic Proximity Sensors are fully enclosed in impermeable cylindrical or rectangular plastic housing to ensure resistance against corrosion and oxidation. Reed sensors are encased in heavy-duty glass bulbs to protect against dust.
