Micronor MR386 Fiber Optic Microswitch
The Micronor MR386 Microswitch is the world's first V-series compatible fiber optic micro switch. It directly replaces conventional micro switches in environments where electromechanical and electronic switch technologies fail to perform. The entirely non-electrical, totally-passive optical sensor provides EMI and RFI immunity, isolation from high voltage and lightning, inherent safety in explosive atmospheres, and can operate interference-free over very long distances – up to 4000 meters.
Two models are offered - Industrial and MRI Safe
- The Industrial model targets the most challenging environments and features an extended temperature range of -40ºC to +80ºC.
- The non-metallic MRI Safe model was purposely designed for use inside the MR bore and is magnetically invisible to the imaging process. With a temperature range of -5ºC to +60ºC, this model targets medical, hospital, laboratory and instrumentation applications.
Since 2003, Micronor Inc. has been a pioneer of innovative Fiber Optic Kinetic Sensors for both industrial and medical applications. Products include Fiber Optic Position Sensors, Rotary Encoders, Linear Encoders, Signaling, E-Stop, Microswitch, Accelerometer, and Temperature Sensors. These sensors are designed for challenging applications where immunity to EMI, RFI, microwaves, high voltage, magnetic fields, radiation and/or explosive atmospheres is required, as well as MRI compatibility or long distance operation. Micronor maintains regional sales, service, engineering, and manufacturing facilities in both California, USA and Switzerland.
