Magnetic field sensors for the C-slot for detecting the piston position on pneumatic cylinders
Detecting – Magnets
A magnetic field sensor integrated into the slot detects the opening condition (open/closed) of a gripper or the position of a pneumatic ejector. This allows you to ensure that blister packs are exactly positioned in boxes or that improperly packaged matches are sorted out. Magnetic field sensors feature a compact form factor and ease of installation.
The magnetic field sensor detects the magnetic field strength of a permanent magnet. This also works through non-magnetic walls, such as through an aluminum cylinder. If the threshold value (magnetic field strength) is exceeded, the sensor generates a switching signal.
The miniaturized electronics allow you to install the sensors directly into the C-slot (3.8 mm). Form factors for other slot types, e.g. T-slot, and for other attachment options are also available.
