Turck expands its line of BIM-UNT Cylinder Position Sensors

TURCK has expanded its line of BIM-UNT cylinder position sensors with a new 2-wire DC version, along with a NAMUR option for intrinsically safe applications.

The cylinder position sensor features a wear-free design and short circuit protection, making it a suitable alternative to electromagnetic switches in the automotive industry. To further the sensor’s applicability in this industry, TURCK has integrated a weld-resistant TPU cable.

Measuring only 28 mm in total length, the BIM-UNT is one of the most compact cylinder position sensors on the market. The active sensing faces are located directly at the end of the sensor, allowing it to safely detect the piston rod’s end position on compact, short-stroke cylinders.

BIM-UNT uses magneto-resistive, board-level technology that improves sensor performance and enhances housing options. It comes with a quick-mount tab that helps seat the sensor in the cylinder’s groove—even before the screw is tightened—to facilitate single-handed mounting. The screw is positioned away from the cable-end to provide cable strain relief, while also ensuring the sensor remains in place if the cable is pulled.

With a broad range of accessories, from precision mounting to wire-strain relief products, BIM-UNT sensors can be simply installed in all T-groove, dovetail, round and tie rod pneumatic cylinders.
