Detection of gripper state

Workpieces are picked up automatically by handling devices. A pneumatic cylinder opens and closes the gripper. The MZT8 magnetic cylinder sensor detects the final position of the pneumatic cylinder to identify that the workpiece has been picked up correctly. The signal is evaluated in the machine control.

  • Following product families can be used
    Typically SICK: precision sensors for high machine output
    • Can be used in all standard cylinders, linear slides, and grippers using the T-slot and – with the help of adapters – in round rod, tie-rod, and profile cylinders, and cylinders with a dovetail groove

    • Insertion of the sensor into the slot from above makes mounting quick and easy

    • Combined fixing screw (hexagon socket screw and slotted screw)

    • Yellow LED as optical adjustment indicator and output state display

    • Green LED acts as a status indicator

    • Very short sensor housing for use in short stroke cylinders

    • Enclosure ratings: IP 67, IP 68, IP 69K

    • IO-Link and automation functions
    Works with high precision: Cylinder sensor with two sensor heads
    • Sensor variant for T-slot cylinder with two MZT8 sensor heads on one male connector

    • Sensors are inserted into the cylinder slot from above

    • Combined fixing screw (hexagon socket screw and slotted screw)

    • Temperature-resistant up to 80 °C

    • Very short sensor housing for use in short stroke cylinders
