The MZC1 VIA magnetic cylinder sensor from SICK is the flexible solution for detecting the piston position in pneumatic actuators. The MZC1 VIA can be mounted directly into all cylinders with standard C-slots. SICK also has an extensive range of adapters which enable the MZC1 VIA to be used with other cylinder types. The MZC1 VIA is characterized by its simple mounting principle: Insert the sensor into the slot and rotate the fixing screw a quarter turn to fix it securely to the cylinder. The yellow LED serves as an optical adjustment indicator and makes it easier to install the sensor and monitor its mounting position. The additional green LED indicates whether the MZC1 VIA is in operation.
