The target component material (e.g. lever, switch, hatch cover, etc.) to be monitored must be capable of being detected by the magnet contained within the Opti-Mag sensor. If the target material is not magnetic, a bracket or plate (made of a magnetic material) can be affixed to the target. The Opti-Mag Sensor's normal sensing distance to the target should not exceed .040." The standard (magnetic) metal bracket is part number OMS-BRK.
For applications in which the distance from the Sensor to the target exceeds 0.040,” Fiber Instrument Sales recommends the use of a supplemental magnet / bracket assembly (PN: OMS-MBRKASSY) that is easily affixed to the target surface.
