Mini Tubular Sensors

Bulletin 871C Mini Tubular Sensors are self-contained, general purpose, solid-state devices designed to sense the presence of ferrous and nonferrous metal objects without touching them. These small-barrel sensors are designed for space-critical applications where standard size sensors simply won't fit.
