Model MGD-F8-5 Electromagnetic Sensor


  • Positioning of the machine or the like using a magnet
  • There is little space, the magnetic detection of a narrow place
  • Position detection of metal pallets or moving tables using magnets


  • Simple installation with a single M3 screw.
  • Molded type that can be used safely even in places where water may splash.
  • Small flat electromagnetic sensor that can be installed easily in small places.

International Standards

  • Our products do not have overseas safety regulations such as CE mark, UL standard, EN standard etc.
  • Products is compliant to the RoHS directive.

* Please consult about "change of specification" and "request of specification" of the product.

Usage Precautions

  1. The back-flow prevention diode is not attached. Pay ample attention at wiring connection.
  2. Do not place magnetic metal within 15 mm from the detection surface at the extremity.
  3. If the object on which the electromagnetic sensor is installed is made of magnetic metal, the detection sensitivity may greatly vary. Ensure sufficient distance with magnetic metal and always verify the detection characteristics before using the sensor.
  4. If there is magnetic metal with residual magnetism in the surroundings of the electromagnetic sensor installation location, the detection characteristics may greatly vary. Verify the detection characteristics before using the sensor.
  5. See Electromagnetic sensor general usage precautions for other precautions.
