Reed Sensor MK02 Series Expansion
MK02/6 and MK02/7 are the expansion of metal detector reed sensor MK02, with 85% smaller package....
The MK02 Metal Detection Reed Sensors have expanded with the addition of two new PCB mount packages. No external magnet is required. This rugged sensor has a patented design that will detect magnetically conductive metal.
The MK02 Series is a non-contact position and proximity sensor. Formerly only available in five different screw flange mount style packages, the MK02 is now also available in four additional PCB through hole mount versions (MK02/6 and MK02/7). The smallest PCB mount version is 85% smaller than the MK02/5. The MK02 Series is currently MEDER’s only series that works like a metal detection sensor. These metal detection sensors have a patented design that is used to detect the presence of magnetically conductive metals, eliminating the need for a permanent magnet used in a conventional reed sensor to actuate the reed switch. This metal detection sensor series requires no power to operate and is an excellent alternative to inductive proximity sensors.
Whether screw flange mounted with cable or PCB mounted, choose from two different actuation directions: from the front of the sensor or above the sensor. The MK02 is available in SPST normally open (Form A) and normally closed (Form B) contact forms. The overall potential ON sense distance spans from 3.5-13.5mm and OFF distance from 3.7-15mm.
MK02 sensors are an excellent proximity sensor in a variety of security applications due to their rugged construction. From door sensors to machinery safety controls, the MK02 series are rising to the occasion in more applications than ever before with the addition of the four new PCB mount versions.
