Note: Switch contacts shown below in "material sensed" condition.

The Proxwitch connects to the outside world via a 5-core cable.

Two of these wires are exclusively used to power the device. This means that the switching contacts are totally isolated from the supply lines, unlike transistor or thyristor-based designs.

Three black cores connect to the changeover relay. These are marked 1, 3 and 4. Use of a tried and tested relay technique means that the Proxwitch is more electrically robust and less susceptible to external damage by the user.

All models, regardless of supply voltage can switch up to a maximum of 5A (resistive), 240V AC

In this example, the load is switched on when material leaves the Proxwitch.

The above diagram shows connections for switching the load on when the material arrives at the Proxwitch.
