Magnetic cylinder sensors determine exact pistons in pneumatic cylinders

Magnetic cylinder sensors determine exact pistons in pneumatic cylinders

Baumer launches a new generation of magnetic cylinder sensors for detecting the exact position of pistons in pneumatic cylinders. The new cylinder sensors available for T und C slots have been enhanced in performance and reliability.

 For instance, the sensitivity was optimized to produce a more precise and reproducible switching characteristic. Every sensor is tested upon its sensitivity prior to delivery. Additionally, upgraded materials are used to make the sensors more robust. The cables, for example, now consist of PUR, ensuring the trouble-free use of the cylinder sensors in oily environments.

The increased robustness is also evident in the salt water climate resistance of the sensors. The magnetic sensing technique forgoing any moving parts enables maximum sensor product life by keeping wear down to a minimum. The MZTK 06P1013 line of sensors for T slots can be easily and quickly installed in the slot from above. No cylinder disassembly is required, even if both front faces are equipped with installation panels.

Thanks to the wide selection of mounting accessories, the sensor can be conveniently attached to all common cylinder types. All sensors are available in PNP or NPN as well as cable or flylead connector versions.
