Subsea Proximity Switches
Proximity Switch molded onto underwater cable
with Magnet Actuator
- Hermetically Sealed
- Submersible to 10,000 psi
- Zero Power Consumption
- 2-Wire System
- No Transmitter Needed
- Robust & Dependable
- Shock Resistant
- Accurate Position Sensing
Designed for ocean service and operates directly submerged underwater. Built to meet the highest water immersion ratings such as IPx8 of IEC 529. Submersible to 20,000 ft. in ocean depth.
Reliable and dependable actuations. Unaffected by ambient ocean pressure which means no unintended actuations caused by changing ocean pressures. Unaffected by mineral deposition or silt because the proximity switch is used in conjunction with the actuating magnet (pictured above on the left side).
Switch actuates 1/4 to 1/2 inch and even higher distances depending on the magnet actuator.
Distance between the switches "on" and "off" is tight. The switch hysteresis (distance between “on” and “off”) is a low distance of 0.020 to 0.040 inch. 2 wire system and no power required to operate.
Applications: Deepwater Pipeline Connectors, Diving, Deepsea Mining, Dredging, Water Treatment, Naval Defence, Underwater Vehicles, Diving operations, Deep water.
