Emerson has introduced the Topworx™GO™ Switch Model 52M — a 12 mm proximity sensor designed specifically for applications in outdoor and challenging industrial environments. The new sensor is well-suited for material handling, mobile equipment, industrial equipment, and food and beverage processing applications. “The GO Switch 52M is highly durable, does not require power, and operates across a wide temperature range,” said Emill Melliz, senior product manager, GO Switch. “Our proximity sensor is ideal for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) desiring reduced maintenance and fewer equipment breakdowns. The GO Switch provides a much more rugged alternative to the inductive proximity sensor and is far more reliable than a reed switch,” said Melliz. The Model 52M incorporates the GO Switch’s unique dry contact proximity sensor technology that uses magnets to control a set of contacts. This technology’s durability and reliability have been proven in over 60 years of service in the process industries.
