Bimba Manufacturing, an industry-leading innovator of actuation technology, today announced the introduction of a completely new Solid-State switch series to its family of switch products. These new switches add additional benefits such as a smaller operating window, smaller hysteresis, and tighter repeatability all as a result of a new, innovative and intelligent sensing algorithm that senses magnet edge instead of magnetic field. These enhanced-performance EdgeSwitchTM solid-state switches provide enhanced magnetic sensing capabilities making them ideal for use in even the most difficult cylinder sensing applications.
In addition, the new EdgeSwitchTM line features a 90-degree configuration, which is now also available in Bimba’s popular 4mm, C-slot magnetic MR reed switch, MS auto-configure switch, MSC sourcing switch, and MSK sinking switches. The sleek 90-degree profile is optimal for applications in tight locations, or in shorter cylinders such as Bimba “Flat” cylinders. The configuration also offers great value in applications that depend on cable routing.
