Monitor piston position on cylinders

With BMF magnetic field sensors

Our compact standard magnetic field sensors are the optimal classic solution for monitoring the piston position on cylinders. The sensor recognizes the field of the magnet integrated into the piston through the actuator wall, even at high travel speeds. With its non-contact position detection these magnetic field sensors from Balluff are absolutely reliable and wear-free. This means: no contact erosion or bounce. You get only clean switching points.


  • Can be installed in T- or C-slot from above
  • Short, compact form factors with great holding force as well as miniature sizes for short stroke cylinders and grippers
  • No double switching points
