This battery powered device requires no wires or hookups, making it easy to install and simple to include into existing designs. The Standex Proximity Alarm is built around proven technology, including the GR150 and GR200 magnetic reed switches. Measuring as small as 3.7 mm in length, these extremely small reed switches retain magnetic sensitivity of 2-4 Ampere Turns (AT), typical operating time of 0.2 milliseconds (typical) and a release time of 0.1 milliseconds (typical).
“This is an exciting new product built upon proven components” said Christian Rogiers, Director of Global Marketing for Standex Electronics. “With the combination of audio and visual alarms, and the simple installation, the potential uses for these non-contact position sensors are limited only by the imagination.”
