Bi-Colour LED Indication Proximity Switch
The FS-GM Series Proximity Switch (M18x1.0 Thread) is highly versatile and can be used in a multitude of applications where LED indication and a reliable signal is required. Utilising proven magnetic technology enables them to sense ferrous material, such as carbon steel or stainless steel (17/4 or 400 series) at up to 2.5mm (0.1"). Volt free SPCO/SPDT (Form C) contacts as standard with the ability to use as Normally Open or Normally Closed devices.
The FS-GM Series is available either hardwired or with V3 Mini-Change Quick Disconnect connectors.
The FS-GM Series is covered by the following hazardous area certifications.
|Intrinsically Safe:||IECEx & ATEX Ex ia (Zone 0 & Zone 20) ¦ UL/CSA IS (Zone 0)|
The FS-GI series proximity switches meet the requirements of IEC 61508:2010 Routes 1H & 1S with Systematic Capability (SC3) as an element/subsystem, and are suitable for use in safety-related systems performing safety functions up to and including SIL 2 with HFT=0 (1oo1) and SIL 3 with HFT =1 (1oo2).
