*1. Notice that the actual distance is 15 mm min.
*2. AC power cannot be used.

Sensor (terminal block)


Note: Tighten each M3 screw of the terminal block to a torque of 0.59 N·m. max.

Sensor (pre-wired)




Note:The shape of the magnet is the same for Pre-wired Models and Terminal Block Models, but the magnet specifications are different.
