The BIG candy Corn Proximioty Sensor Switch is a large, wired proximity sensor switch that activates when a person coems within 2.5 cm of the switch top.

Features visual and auditory feedback, which can be turned on or off and a 3.5-mm mono switch plug for connecting to any switch-adapted equipment.

It is twice the size of the Little Candy Corn Switch but just like it's smaller version is highly sensitive and does not require a physical touch to activate. Just wave your hand or other portion of your body within 25 millimeters of the switch to activate.


  • Larger activation area that is approximately 9-cm wide (80% wider than the LITTLE Candy Corn!)
  • Easier to activate – activates when the user is within 2.5-cm of the switch top or with a light touch
  • Auditory beep and visual feedback can be turned on and off
  • Includes replaceable CR2430 battery (one is included)
  • Internal magnet for mounting, or use the two threaded inserts to mount with the AbleNet Universal Mounting Plate

Note: Candy Corn cannot perform "Momentary closure" simulation - i.e. it can't hold the switch "Open" or activated by keeping a finger or other body part over Candy Corn. Therfore Candy Corn is not suitable for use with Tracker Pro, simple "on/off" Switch Adapted Toys or with Battery Device Adapters. A Switch Latch and Timer is required for use with Battery Device Adapters.
