Cylinder Position Sensors offer integral strain relief.

Press Release Summary:



Immune to EMC, polarity-protected BIM-UNT universal magnetic field sensor detects position of piston on standard pneumatic cylinders. It uses magneto-resistive, board level technology and features sensing face in front of sensor to aid in detecting short stroke cylinders. Quick mount tab helps seat sensor in cylinder groove, even before the screw is tightened, and screw is located away from cable-end to provide cable strain relief and ensure sensor remains in place if cable is pulled.

BIM-UNT Cylinder Position Sensors



Minneapolis, Minn. - TURCK introduces the BIM-UNT, a universal magnetic field sensor that detects the position of a piston on standard pneumatic cylinders. The BIM-UNT is highly immune to EMC and polarity protected, with reliable switching points and a fast response time. These and other design features make the BIM-UNT a desirable alternative to traditional cylinder position sensors.

The BIM-UNT uses magneto-resistive, board level technology that provides improved performance and housing. In addition, the sensing face has been placed in the front of the sensor to aid in detecting short stroke cylinders. The sensor comes with a quick mount tab that helps seat the sensor in the cylinders groove-even before the screw is tightened-making single-handed mounting possible. Plus, the position of the screw has been moved away from the cable-end, providing cable strain relief while ensuring the sensor remains in place if the cable is pulled.

BIM-UNT sensors include a broad range of accessories, from precision mounting to wire-strain relief products, to help install the sensors in all T-groove, dovetail and tie rod pneumatic cylinders.

TURCK is an industry leader providing superior quality sensing, connectivity and network products to help manufacturers improve their automated processes. For other TURCK product or technical information, contact: Application support: 1-800-544-7769 o www.turck.com o turckusa@turck.com
