Magnetic Sensors for Position Monitoring
ROEMHELD G 2.140 Magnetic Sensors for Position Monitoring of Block Cylinders and Pneumatic Swing Clamps
- Block cylinder with bronze housing B 1.553
- Block cylinder with aluminium housing B 1.554
- Block cylinder with guide housing B 1.738
- Pneumatic swing clamp J 7.202
Electronic magnetic sensors allow position monitoring of the pistons of cylinders with non-magnetisable housings (aluminium or bronze).
An annular permanent magnet is fixed to the piston, and its magnetic field is detected by an electronic magnetic sensor. The magnetic sensors are fixed outside in the lengthwise slots of the cylinder body. The switching points are adjustable by displacement of the magnetic sensors in the lengthwise slots of the body.
