Monitoring of clamping cylinders

When the working area has been enabled, the clamping cylinders must first be introduced to fix the parts. The MZT8 magnetic cylinder sensor precisely detects the position of the clamping cylinder with short strokes. It is optimized for the smallest cylinder size and has a precise switching point.
