Magnetic sensors for C-groove cylinders from SMC

June 2019 Sensors & Transducers

Turck’s portfolio of magnetic field sensors is being expanded: The BIM-UNC product series was specially optimised for perfect mounting in the C-groove pneumatic cylinder of SMC. The sensors can be inserted from the side into the groove with one hand and without the need for any additional mounting accessories. A quarter turn of the screw causes the thread to press the sensor against the pneumatic cylinder and secure it against vibration. A tightening torque of only 0,1 Nm is required to fasten it and the cylinder is not damaged in the process.

The series is ideal for applications in materials handling and automated assembly or in punching machines and industrial robots. Magnetic field sensors are used particularly for measuring the piston position in pneumatic cylinders. The sensors of the UNC series with protection to IP67 are specified for a temperature range from -25 to 70°C. A 2 m cable variant as well as M8 and M12 pigtails are available as standard, with either PNP or NPN output functions.
