Cylinder sensors – precise piston positioning on pneumatic cylinders

In most automation systems, cylinder sensors from the field of Position sensors are essential for the control of production.

The cylinder sensors are inserted into the T-slot of cylinders and mechanically fixed in order to query the end positions of the piston in the pneumatic cylinder. The detection takes place through the cylinder housing wall made of non-magnetizable material.

The sensors react to a ring magnet attached to the piston rod. Every time it is in the detection range of the cylinder sensor, a signal is sent to the controller for further processing.

Position detection using cylinder sensors in various applications

Precise position detection on cylinders to ensure smooth production is important, for example, in the following areas of application:

  • Packaging technology
  • Handling technology
  • Special mechanical construction
  • Process engineering
  • Factory automation

Cylinder sensors are characterized by their high switching frequencies, their mechanical insensitivity to dust and dirt as well as their easy handling. For this reason, they also qualify for other areas of automation.

 

Buy cylinder sensors from ifm at Automation24 at the best prices

The Automation24 range includes two different types of cylinder sensors among the Sensor systems.

One construction variant works through the reliable magnetic reed technology with a switching frequency of 1,000 signals per second, with direct or alternating voltage.

The other cylinder sensors use a GMR cell that can deliver a maximum of 10,000 signals per second. Short-circuit and surge protection is also included as a standard.

The cylinder sensors are available with or without M8 and M12 connectors on a PUR cable. Thanks to their self-locking fixing system, they are easy to adjust and assemble.

At Automation24 you will find a large selection of cylinder sensors at very reasonable prices.

Select the suitable sensor for your application and reliably record the piston positions in your pneumatic cylinders today!
