Proximity Switch

Operating Principle:

The KENCO Proximity Switch is installed into the divider block and is composed of a reed switch plus a magnet. When installed, the magnet rests against the divider block piston. The magnet is housed in the Proximity Switch body parallel to the reed switch. Each time the divider block pulses with a lubrication cycle, the piston moves the magnet, opening and closing the contacts of the reed switch. The Kenco proximity switch is commonly used in conjunction with the Kenco Electronic No-Flow Monitor, but can also be used to actuate any similar device that is monitoring a lubrication system.
