Parker FP2000

Ferrous Proximity, Normally Open.

The Parker FP2000 is a ferrous proximity sensor for mobile hydraulic applications and will sense ferrous objects. The sensor is available with the sense zone on the side (site A) or on the top (site B) of the case. The ‘site A’ version has twelve inch leads with an attached Deutsch DTM connector. The ‘site B’ version has 10.5 inch leads with an attached Deutsch DT connector. The FP2000 has a glass-filled nylon plastic construction for strength and corrosion resistance. The sensor uses non-contact technology, through the use of an internal reed switch, for trouble free operation. The sensor is very robust and able to withstand rugged applications.
