Overview of Proximity Switches

A proximity Switch is a sensor able to detect the presence of nearby objects without any physical contact.


Proximity switches provide better alternative to the conventional electro-mechanical limit switches for position sensing. It is a best solution to all linear / rotary counting applications. They find wide applications in Machine tools, Foundries, Rolling mills, Automobile, Textile, Pharmaceutical, Material handling and all automation systems in general.


The Proximity Switches are generally available in tubular enclosures with diameter from 4 mm to 140 mm. These enclosures are made of Stainless Steel, Nickel Plated Brass Tube or Engineering Plastics as required by the application.

These switches are totally epoxy potted to meet IP-67 grade of protection. The switches are also available in various other shapes such as Rectangular, Slot, Block, Button and Insert type modules. Our Proximity Switches meet CE requirements.
