Position Sensors / Detectors / Transducers

Sensors provide direct analog output on pneumatic cylinders.

Magnetic field sensor WIM45 provides direct analog output for determining position of piston magnet on all types of pneumatic cylinders. It detects position by utilizing series of Hall elements, which sense piston magnet and send signal back to processor. With ability to reverse analog output slope by rotating sensor 180 degrees, sensor eliminates need for 2 separate sensors. IEC EN 60947-5-2 and...
