Mechanical Position Sensor Takes Two

Microprecision’s MP600 series mechanical sensors is designed to detect two positions within a single product. The distance between the two positions can be customized to the user’s application between 0.3 mm and 1.5 mm. The fixed NC and NO contacts activate with no measurable hysteresis. Repeatability is better than 5 µm and depending on cable selection, the operational temperature can go from -40°C up to 130°C. The cable termination can be supplied with a M12 connector.


This patented switching mechanism is designed for low voltage applications up to 30 Vdc. It is self contained and can easily be inserted in multiple forms and shapes of housings. The IP67 rated standard housing sizes are M8 and M12 with a pin or ball plunger. Target applications are in the automation, process control and OEM industries that today require two switches for position control.
