Monitoring of a press-fit cylinder using the MPS-T

A pneumatic press-fit cylinder press-fits component B into component A. To ensure that component B is press-fitted into component A correctly, the MPS-T position sensor detects the piston movement of the cylinder. As soon as the MPS-T outputs a predefined analog value, it can be assumed that component B is correctly press-fitted and the next process step can begin.

  • Following product families can be used
    • Position sensor for direct mounting in T-slots on pneumatic cylinders
    • Sensor variants with measuring ranges of 32 mm to 256 mm
    • Analog outputs (for current or voltage), switching output, and IO-Link
    • Mounting on other cylinder types (e.g., round body cylinders) is possible with adapters
