Miniaturised magnetic sensors Instruction on how to use the sensors properly Particular attention should be paid in order not to exceed the wide operating limits shown into the next pages. Besides, the 2 wires sensors have never to be connected to the mains if a load has not been yet connected in series.These are the only cares that, if not followed, may cause damages to the sensor. Furthermore it has to be considered that, while loading, the current absorbed by the sensors might be 50% higher that the rated one. The switch semiconductor construction design makes this sensors extremely compatible, there are no limitation to the type of load applied : inductive, capacitive resistive. In case of direct current (DC) feeding, the polarity of the connection has to be observed: the brown cable must be connected to the plus (+) and the blue one to the minus (-). The cable length must not exceed 10mtrs. If the cable needs to be longer then 10 mt, we recommend to insert in series an inductance or a resistance to counteract the capacity generated by the cable itself. When using a two wire REED type sensor always ensure that the correct load is applied in series on any of the two wires. In case of two or more sensors connected in series pay attention to tension drop generated (around 3V for each sensor), and eventually use the 3 wire REED version designed for in series connection. The Hall effect sensors, which do not include any moving mechanical parts are longer lasting if compared to the Reed version besides, there are some other external factors to be taken into consideration, such as proximity of powered cables, magnetic fields produced by electric motors, mass of iron too close to the sensor, and so on: these factors have to be therefore carefully avoided, being able to influence the sensors and accordingly to cause irregularity of operation. General The limit switches, or magnetic sensors, have to be mounted on cylinders with magnetic piston. These, when hit by the magnetic field generated by the piston as it approaches, close the circuit sending an electrical signal by relè solenoid valve control, etc. or converse with the controlling electronic system situaded on the machine. There are available magnetic sensor with ampulla Reed type and with Hall effect. The sensors are attached to the cylinder by a proper clamp, slot or adaptator and have an activation LED indicator. Note: Themagnetic sensors are according to the Directive EMC 89/336/CEE and following amendments. 6.11
