Miniature Magnetic Cylinder Sensors utilize GMR technology.

Immune from long-term effects of magnetic fields, top-loading sensors incorporate giant magnetoresistive (GMR) technology and suit pneumatic cylinder applications. Polarity-independent sensors detect piston position regardless of magnet orientation. They measure 25 mm long and are secured with mounting screw that prevents cable-pulls. Offered in cabled and pigtail models, dc units include...
