Cylinder sensors for robust fixing

November 2018 Sensors & Transducers

The new cylinder sensor from ifm electronic can be used for common C-slot cylinders such as from SMC. Its height of only 5 mm allows flush mounting. Especially this cylinder manufacturer requires slot-mounting and, often, 2-wire connection.

Long life

The sensors’ function without contact and almost without wear. Their life is much longer than that of the common reed contacts. With the GMR (giant magneto resistive) cell, the sensor detects the magnet on the piston through the aluminium wall of the cylinder. This saves expensive repair and downtimes. Part numbers are: MK5362; MK5363 and MK5365.
