operating status. Fig. 3.1.2 illustrates the internal and external connections. The
light emitting diodes in conjunction with the series resistor assume the function of a
protective circuit for an inductive load. BN(1) +24 VDC BK(4)

ranges are possible (see Fig. 3.1.3). The switching ranges depend on the orientation
of the pole axis of the magnet. Fig. 3.1.3: Response characteristics of a reed proximity sensor © Festo Didactic GmbH & Co. KG • FP 1110 37 3...
