SKU: IMAG163010-REED-ROT Category:


Industrial Wireless Battery-Operated Magnetic Proximity (Reed) Switch

The iQunet proximity switch (reed) sensor is a small battery-operated device that collects continuously data and transmits wireless the gathered data on free adjustable time intervals.


The magnetically actuated internal reed switch monitors the presence of machine components. The normally open switch is closed in the presence of a magnet. The sensor is especially designed to wireless monitor on adjustable intervals rotation speed (RPM) of rotating equipment. The sensor collects simultaneously temperature data. The sensor is powered by 2 standard CR2032 coin cells (included) which assures function for several years in standard operation mode.


The sensor makes a network direct to the central base station node or via the optional repeater.  Sensor data is visualized in the iQunet sensor dashboard on the iQunet Unix server, offering temperature graphs, RPM readings, counter reading, etc.


Used in: monitoring wireless rotation speed of machinery, open or close status of e.g. doors, guards, etc., monitoring of machine cycles, …
