MATERIAL USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE
BALANCED MAGNETIC SWITCH
If the Balanced Magnetic Switch is to be mounted on ferrous surfaces, the switch should be first mounted in a temporary
manner and tested. If the switch does not function properly, remove the assemblies and reinstall them with a non-ferrous
spacer between the assemblies and the mounting surfaces. The spacers must be sized to keep the backs of the switch
assembly and activating magnet in the same plane. The thickness of the spacers may have to be increased to obtain
proper operation of the switch. If the switch assemblies are to be mounted on non-ferrous surfaces, the spacers may not
be required. However, spacers may be required to insure that the switch assembly and actuating magnet are mounted in
the same plane. Figure 7-1 provides typical spacer designs.
