Solid State Switches

Low Profile Switches

American Cylinder’s Solid State Switches are designed for DC applications only. With no mechanical parts to wear out or arc, the solid state circuitry provides a compact, reliable positioning switch for extended service life. They are designed to be used with our MFC Series (Magnetic Field Cylinders) that incorporate a magnetic band on the cylinder’s piston. When the piston with the magnetic band passes under the Solid State Switch, the switch closes a circuit to generate a signal that can be used to control an electric operated device.  They are offered in either a NPN Sinking (MSHL-6) or PNP Sourcing (MSHP-6) version. All Solid State Switches have LEDs which illuminates to indicate when the switch is activated. Switches can be ordered with either a 39” wire or 6” M8 Pigtail connections
