The MZT8 Twin 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 slotted screwdriver or hex key. The MZT8 Twin sits securely in the slot, which makes it well-suited for use in pneumatic cylinders with T-slot. In addition, the patented GMR and ASIC technology from SICK ensures that the sensor delivers precise switching. The MZT8 Twin is available in a range of variants up to an enclosure rating of IP68. Since the male connector has two MZT8 sensor heads, cabling work is very minimal.
