Press Release Summary:
Designed to detect piston position on pneumatic cylinders, Q25L magnetically actuated linear displacement sensor features blind zone of 20.5 mm on each end and is available with measuring ranges of 100, 125, 160, and 200 mm. It detects position of piston on standard pneumatic cylinders by utilizing series of Hall elements that sense piston magnet and send signal back to processor. Repeat accuracy is less than 0.1% of measuring range, and linear deviation is less than 1% of FS.

Turck Q25l Cylinder Position Sensor Provides Extended Range and High Accuracy
Minneapolis, Minn. - June 15, 2009 - TURCK introduces the Q25L sensor, a magnetically actuated linear displacement sensor designed to detect piston position on pneumatic cylinders. Available with measuring ranges of 100, 125, 160 and 200 mm, the Q25L is well-suited for applications that require precise signal transmission over long measuring distances, such as pneumatic pumps, slides, blanking or molding systems. By utilizing an external magnet as a position indicator, the sensor may be used in additional applications such as moving platforms, point line measurement or other specially designed equipment where a cylinder is not present.
Like TURCK's other cylinder position sensors, the Q25L detects the position of a piston on standard pneumatic cylinders by utilizing a series of Hall elements that sense the piston magnet and send a signal back to the processor. The Q25L has a repeat accuracy of less than 0.1 percent of the measuring range and a linear deviation of less than 1 percent of the full scale. It also features a blind zone of only 20.5 mm on each end, making it easy to apply in space-restricted areas.
