TURCK C-Groove Cylinder Position Sensors Offer NPN Outputs and Flexible Mounting Design

May 2, 2011
TURCK's BIM-UNR magnetic cylinder position sensors offer NPN outputs and a flexible mounting design. Designed to mount within C-groove cylinders, the sensors feature a combination mounting screw that allows users to choose a 3/16" (1.3 mm) Allen wrench or a flat-bladed screwdriver for easy sensor installation.
TURCK announces that the company's line of BIM-UNR magnetic cylinder position sensors—designed to mount within C-groove cylinders with no accessories required—has been expanded to include sensors with NPN outputs.BIM-UNR sensors are also now enhanced with a combination mounting screw that grants users the flexibility of choosing a 3/16" (1.3 mm) Allen wrench or a flat-bladed screwdriver for sensor installation. Sensors can be securely mounted with a simple quarter-turn of the mounting screw, which is located in close proximity to the cable exit. This design ensures the sensors remain firmly fastened, even if a cable is pulled.About BIM-UNR SensorsWith dimensions of only 2.9 x 4.6 x 18 mm, BIM-UNR is one of the most compact sensors on the market. For easy installation, this miniature sensor can be inserted into a C-groove from the top rather than from the side. The sensor's active sensing element is placed at the bottom of the groove—as close to the magnet as feasible—to deliver reliable detection, particularly on short-stroke cylinders. In addition, BIM-UNR provides high immunity to EMC interference, in accordance with EN 60947-5-2.More information, specs, and photosTURCK 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: 1-800-544-7769 • www.turck.us[email protected]
