Proximity Sensors

Uncommon sense. Honeywell Sensing and Control offers environmentally sealed proximity sensors in a variety of technologies — including Eddy Current Killed Oscillator (ECKO) and Hall-effect. 

In addition to railway applications, these sensors are designed for the demands of potentially harsh environment applications including aerospace (landing gear position, doors and slides, monitoring systems), ordnance (projectile sensing, ammunition loading systems) and marine (submarine hatch and door position, offshore equipment.

These rugged, one- or two-piece products are:

  • Designed to meet demanding temperature, vibration, shock, and EMI/EMP interference requirements
  • Available in a number of housing materials and termination styles
