MX8030 Proximity Probe

MX8030 Proximity Probe

NEW - Metrix* MX8030 probe series consist of 5mm and 8mm tip diameter probes with VibeLock™* connectors and Triaxial Cables.  VibeLock™* ensures the proximity probe and extension cable connection is made properly and stays connected. No special tools are required.  The Triaxial Cable provides an extra protective barrier for the proximity probe cable system to prevent excessive wear during installation.

MX8031 Extension Cable

MX8031 Extension Cables

NEW - MX8031 Extension Cable System comes standard with VibeLock™* and Triaxial Cables. The VibeLock™* feature ensures a proximity probe and extension cable connection is made properly and stays connected. No special tools are required. The Triaxial Cable provides an extra layer of protection to help prevent excessive wear during installation and in high vibration areas.  The external shield of the Triaxial Cable is not used electrically, but it is used for additional physical cable / signal protection.
