The MZT8 magnetic cylinder sensor from SICK is the flexible solution for detecting the piston position in pneumatic actuators. The sensor can be inserted into cylinders very easily and, with the screw-and-washer assembly, tightened with just a quarter turn of a screwdriver or Allen key. It is not only the perfect fit in the slot that makes the MZT8 ideal for use in pneumatic cylinders with T-slots. Patented GMR technology and the SICK ASIC ensure that the sensor only needs one attempt to deliver precise switching. Multiple switching operations are suppressed, which results in increased machine performance. The MZT8 is available in a range of variants up to an enclosure rating of IP 69K. This ensures the sensor has a long service life and reduces maintenance costs. The yellow LED serves as an optical adjustment indicator and makes it easier to install the sensor and monitor its mounting position. The additional green LED indicates whether the MZT8 is in operation.
