Mounting:
On a vertical surface with mounting bracket on low side or alternatively oriented on high
side of sensor body. If mounting on a non-magnetic surface, select DS-120-A with the thin
screw bracket, but if mounting on steel or other magnetic materials then use 1/2” plastic
spacers or select DS-120-B with integral spacers.
Magnetic steel surfaces and ferrous magnetic parts should not be nearer than 1/2” from the
sensor body. Care must be taken not locate other permanent magnets where they might
affect the operation of the DS-120 sensor switch.
Notes:
1) Do not use with relay coils without back emf protection.
2) Do not use to directly switch incandescent indicator lamps. (Consult factory)
3) Do not use to directly switch high inrush loads, capacitive or motor loads; nor, with wire runs longer than 100ft (Consult factory)
