Position sensors detect the piston position of pneumatic actuators using a direct, non-contact method. They continuously supply data via analogue outputs or IO-Link, enabling flexible machine concepts and making it possible to solve tasks in areas such as quality monitoring and process control. The sensors are mounted externally on the cylinder, ensuring they are fast to install – even on existing machines.
Position sensor for direct mounting in T-slots on pneumatic cylinders
Sensor variants with measuring ranges of 32 mm to 256 mm
Analog outputs (for current or voltage), switching output, and IO-Link
Mounting on other cylinder types (e.g., round body cylinders) is possible with adapters
