Monitoring of clamping cylinders

The MZ2Q magnetic cylinder sensor detects the position of the clamping cylinders. Thanks to two switching points, the rear or front final position can be established with just one cylinder sensor. The monitoring function can thus be implemented even on the smallest clamping cylinders in confined spaces.

  • Following product families can be used
    • 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
    • Drop-in mounting from above simplifies handling and assembly
    • Easy adjustment of two switching points via teach-in pushbutton
    • LEDs for indicating the two switching points
    • Detection range up to 50 mm stroke
