Positioning of grippers when installing a gearshift assembly

When installing a gearshift assembly, an elastic cover is stretched over the gearshift installed on the floor of the vehicle. To ensure trouble-free execution of this process, an MPS-C position sensor measures the displacement of the pneumatic cylinder piston on the grippers used to secure the elastic cover. Three possible states of the elastic cover are detected: correctly, partially, or not secured.

  • Following product families can be used
    • Position sensor for direct mounting in C-slots on pneumatic cylinders and grippers
    • Sensor variants with measuring ranges of 25 mm to 200 mm
    • Analog outputs (for current or voltage), switching output, and IO-Link
    • Mounting on other cylinder types (e.g., round body cylinders) is possible with adapters
