Reed Sensor MK11 Product Spotlight

Reed Sensor MK11 Product Spotlight

Now even more diverse, robust, and more affordable new brass version!

The MK11 Series is a magnetically actuated Reed Sensor enclosed in a threaded housing. All that is required for mounting the MK11 is a threaded portal conveniently located in the sensing area. The threaded style housing and accompanying hardware allow for easy and exact adjustment in limit switch, end position, and proximity sensing applications.

Branching out from the plastic and stainless steel styles, the MK11 Series Threaded Reed Sensors are even more diversified with the addition of a new brass version. The brass housing is structurally robust enabling it to withstand higher torque settings, and resist high temperatures, moisture, and compression. Furthermore, the brass housing's non-ferromagnetic properties also eliminate any potential magnetic switching interferences.

In addition to the added stability, this MK11 also comes in a large assortment of metric thread sizes that range from M6 to M12. While the standard MK11 series brass version is equipped with a 500mm long, round PVC cable, many other wire termination and connector options similar to our other sensors series. A full range of SPST and SPDT power switching options are available using our KSK Series ReedSwitches. This affordable brass version of our MK11 is an excellent choice in a variety of end position or proximity sensing applications requiring flexible sensing adjustment, multiple switching options, and diversified mounting and wire termination.
