Twin-set Boosts Position Sensing

A twin-set sensor to augment the vendor’s line of BIM-UNT cylinder position sensors has been created.

BIM-UNT is a universal magnetic field sensor that detects the position of a piston on standard pneumatic cylinders. It is highly immune to EMC and polarity protected, and has reliable switching points and a fast response time. The active sensing faces are located directly at the end of the sensor to safely detect the piston rod’s end position on compact, short-stroke cylinders. The new twin-set sensor is comprised of two sensing heads connected by an overmolded cable. The power and signal wires are then combined into an integral M12 connector on the sensor, so users only have to use one 4-wire cordset to connect the twin-set sensor to their PLCs. The twin-set sensor is useful for detecting the extended and retracted position of the cylinder’s piston for longer cycles, and has high sensitivity and switching accuracy.
