Detect Positions in Non-Magnetic Block Cylinders

With BMF magnetic field sensors

Varying piston positions can be reliably detected from the outside on block cylinders made of non-magnetic materials such as aluminum or stainless steel because our magnetic field sensors detect both end positions and intermediate positions. Thanks to IO-Link you can even define up to eight switching points. These universal sensors detect the permanent magnet ring attached to the piston through the cylinder wall.


  • Detect end and intermediate positions – universal application
  • IO-Link versions – up to eight switchpoints can be programmed
  • Highly compact – can be installed in C- or T-slots
  • Single connector versions in M8 or M12 for two sensors – easily double the sensors on a multi-interface block or sensor distributor
