For over 30 years, MagneLink Inc. has engineered reliable, high-quality, and cost-friendly magnetic switches across multiple regions in the United States. We are sincerely dedicated to providing our customers with the MagneLink difference – combining magnificent magnetic switches with stellar customer service.
MagneLink Inc. offers a comprehensive array of magnetic switches produced with the latest innovative technology in the industry. If you are looking for magnetic switches for actuators and pneumatic cylinders, MagneLink Inc. has you covered!
What Are Magnetic Switches?
Magnetic switches are operated by a magnetic core derived from ferromagnetic materials. At MagneLink Inc., we design our products with a movable magnet that activates the switch contacts, turning the circuit on or off.
What Are The Advantages Of Using Magnetic Switches?
Say goodbye to mechanical failure of parts and damage from oil, water, dirt, dust, and ice. Magnetic switches overcome the limitations of mechanically-operated devices, and MagneLink Inc. can provide you with reliable switches with longer lifespans.
MagneLink’s Magnetic Switches For Actuators & Pneumatic Cylinders
MagneLink Inc. offers magnetic switches specially designed to activate actuators’ mechanical functions and can be installed in pneumatic cylinders for position location.
An actuator is a mover – part of an automatic control mechanism that operates movement in an electromechanical system.
Pneumatic cylinders, also known as air cylinders, are used in applications requiring linear motion.
We provide reed and hall effect switches that can be used in either of these applications.
We recommend MagneLink’s line of reed switches for their lower power usage and simplicity. It’s an excellent choice for actuators in almost any environment, and they are also the most commonly used sensor for pneumatic cylinders.
Typically the magnet is on the air cylinder’s piston. Then, the reed switch can sense the magnetic field as it passes through the sensor, and when the position is located, it sends a feedback signal to the control system. The control system then makes decisions based on the feedback signal.
MagneLink’s reed switches are proven and tested to have the highest-quality and longest-lasting life on the market. We offer reed switch designs in the following housings:
Hall Effect Switches
Alternatively, hall effect sensors can be used in MagneLink switches to turn the circuit on and off. Hall effect switches are helpful when a solid state device is desired to sense the magnetic field to eliminate the issues that can come from using the mechanical-type contacts contained in a reed switch. Our hall effect switch designs come in the following housings:
Wide Range Of Magnetic Switches By MagneLink Inc.
MagneLink’s magnetic switches apply to a wide range of usage in multiple industries. Our products are commonly used in automotive, industrial, factory automation, semiconductor manufacturing, waste and recycling, security, safety, and transportation applications.
We also offer other varieties of magnetic switches like Triac switches for alternating current (AC) voltage circuits and Transistor switches designed for direct current (DC) voltage circuits. Both Triac and Transistor-style switches are intended for switching heavy-duty inductive loads.
