Cylinder sensors - Little helpers
In most automation systems cylinder sensors are indispensable to control production. Precise position detection on cylinders by means of compact sensors in the fields of
- packaging technology
- handling technology
- special purpose machinery
- process engineering
- factory automation
is very important to ensure smooth production. Their high switching frequencies, mechanical robustness and easy handling qualify them also for other applications in the field of automation.
Position detection by means of cylinder sensors
The cylinder sensors are inserted in the T-slot of a cylinder and mechanically fixed to detect the end positions of the piston in the cylinder. Every time it is in the detection range of the sensor a signal for further processing is sent to the controller.
Product range Automation24
Our range includes two different types of cylinder sensors. Our own low-cost brand Automation24 operates using the reliable magnetic Reed technology with a switching frequency of 1,000 signals per second and operates both with direct and alternating current. The sensors from ifm electronic use a GMR cell which provides max. 10,000 signals per second. Furthermore they feature short-circuit and overload protection as standard. Both brands are available with or without M8 connector on the PUR cable.
Besides cylinder sensors you find many other position sensors for different applications in the range of Automation24. The range is complemented by the matching accessories to fix the sensors.
At Automation24 you find a large selection of cylinder sensors at very favourable prices. Select the sensor suitable for your application now!
