The 3562 magnetic contact switch is very small and is designed for surface mounted installations.

The switch handles gaps of up to 12mm (1/2 inch) between the magnet and the switch. The switch will turn the digital input "on" when the magnet is within 12mm of the switch, and will turn "off" when the contact is broken by moving the magnet more than 13mm away.

Features

  • Small magnetic switch triggers when magnet is brought near
  • Connects to any Phidget that has a digital input

Connection

This sensor can be used with any device that has a digital input. Check the Connection & Compatibility tab for more information.

Interface Boards and Hubs

This switch can be read by connecting one end to a digital input and the other end to the ground pin of the same board. Here's a list of boards with digital inputs:
