Piston position detection in micro pneumatics

When pick-and-place robots work in tight spaces or have to grip very small parts, miniature pneumatic cylinders are used. The extremely short MZCG magnetic cylinder sensor is specially designed for the detection of piston position in miniature pneumatic cylinders with C-slots. Thanks to the universal construction, the MZCG can be easily inserted into the C-slot from above without creating large interfering contours.

  • Following product families can be used
    • Extremely small housing (12.2 mm) for applications in pneumatic grippers and miniature cylinders
    • Fits in all commonly-used C-slots, e.g. from Schunk, Zimmer, Festo or SMC
    • Short, precise switching point, ideal for applications with small stroke
    • Cable suitable for drag chain
    • LED for indicating the output state
    • IP68 enclosure rating
