Sentrol Switches

The 151/153 GuardSwitch is a sturdy switch ideal for waste compactor applications. It is an economical sensor often used in robotic arm position applications. Transient protection, such as back-to-back zener diodes (Transorb) or an RC network, is recommended for surges to ensure that maximum ratings of the switch are not exceeded. An in-line resistor can be added in series immediately

Red Lion Encoders

The ZSD Sensors have open collector outputs. An open collector output brings the uncommitted collector of the encoder switching device to the external world. Because the collector element is not associated with the sensor supply voltage, the sensor output collector may be "pulled up" to external voltages (30 VDC max.) different than the encoder supply voltage. NPN open collector outputs are current sinking devices.
