Emerson introduces magnetic target switch
Fluid control and pneumatics technology company Emerson recently released its TopWorx Magnetic Target Switch (MTS) to provide ready-to-install, universally-certified position sensing for explosion-proof and intrinsically safe applications.
According to a company news release, the hazardous locations-approved TopWorx MTS joins the TopWorx GO switch in the Emerson portfolio of position-sensing products, providing a single source for both standard and heavy-duty position sensors.
The TopWorx MTS is a magnetic, target-actuated, barrel-style switch designed to deliver value in applications ranging from standard industrial to extreme duty. It features universal certifications including IECEx, ATEX, UL, and CSA, the TopWorx MTS can help reduce time to market by avoiding approval delays.
The 316L stainless-steel design of the MTS resists corrosion and is available in general-purpose, intrinsically safe, or explosion-proof area classifications, thus, making it suitable for use in environments including oil and gas, chemical, industrial energy, on-site utilities, mining, minerals, and metals, power generation, pulp and paper, waste and wastewater.
