Magnetic field sensors

Contactless and reliable detection

Magnetic field sensors are used chiefly on cylinders and grippers for monitoring the piston position. The sensor thus recognizes the field of the magnet integrated into the piston through the actuator wall.

With their contactless position detection, Balluff's magnetic field sensors function reliably and wear free: No contact erosion, no bounce and only clean contact points. Even at high movement speeds, the piston position is reliably recognized.

The most important benefits

  • Contact-free and therefore wear-free
  • No double switching points
  • Reliable even at high movement speeds
