Short cylinder sensor for pneumatic grippers and miniature cylinders
The MZC2 magnetic cylinder sensor detects the piston position in pneumatic grippers and pneumatic miniature cylinders. Thanks to its short design, the MZC2 is particularly well-suited for the C-slots of very small pneumatic actuators as used in handling and assembly, robotics or the electronics industry. The sensor is simply inserted into the C-slot and can be quickly and safely fastened to the cylinder. The sensor is fully recessed in the slot. Thanks to the choice of two housing variants, the MZC2 fits in a wide range of C-slots of various manufacturers.
At a glance
Short housing (19.5 mm) for use in pneumatic grippers and miniature cylinders
Fits in all common C-slots, e.g. from SMC, Bimba, Schunk, Zimmer and Festo
Short, precise switching point, ideal for applications with small stroke
LED for indicating the output state
IP67 enclosure rating
Sensor is fully recessed in the slot
Specially designed for pneumatic grippers and miniature cylinders
The MZC2 magnetic cylinder sensor from SICK is specially designed for detection of the piston position in pneumatic grippers and miniature cylinders with C-slots. The applications therefore include handling and assembly, robotics and the electronics industry, for example. The small sensor comes into its own wherever space is limited.
MZC2 – short cylinder sensor
The MZC2 fits in a wide range of C-slots of most gripper and cylinder manufacturers thanks to the choice of two universal housing variants.
Quick and easy mounting, minimal space requirements
Thanks to its universal design, the MZC2 can be easily inserted into C-slots from above. A short housing with a length of just 19.5 mm and an axial cable connection allow the sensor to be completely recessed in the slot. In spite of its compact design, the sensor guarantees full functionality in combination with minimum weight.
