Overview

Extremely short cylinder sensor for pneumatic grippers and miniature cylinders

The MZCG magnetic cylinder sensor detects the piston position in pneumatic grippers and pneumatic miniature cylinders. Thanks to its very small design, the MZCG is particularly well-suited for the C-slots of very small pneumatic actuators such as are used in handling and assembly, robotics or the electronics industry. The sensor is simply inserted in the C-slot and can be quickly and safely fastened on the cylinder. The MZCG fits in a wide range of C-slots of various manufacturers due to its universal housing design. This reduces storage costs, enables flexible machine design and easier service.

At a glance
  • 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

Benefits

Specially designed for pneumatic grippers and miniature cylinders

The MZCG magnetic cylinder sensor from SICK is specially designed for the detection of piston position in pneumatic grippers and miniature cylinders with C-slots, which are used in handling and assembly, robotics and the electronics industry, to name a few examples. This tiny device shows its true might anywhere space is limited.

MZCG - Extremely short cylinder sensor

With a housing of only 12.2 mm and a 90° rotated radial cable connection, the MZCG is optimal for small drives.
Universal use in a wide range of C-slots of the most common gripper and cylinder manufacturers.
Intelligent fixing concept, the sensor can be locked in no time thanks to the non-detachable screw.

The MZCG fits in a wide range of C-slots of the most common gripper and cylinder manufacturers due to its universal housing design. This reduces storage costs, enables flexible machine design and simplifies service.

Quick and easy mounting, minimal space requirements

Thanks to the universal construction, the MZCG can be easily inserted into the C-slot from above. The new fixing concept with a non-detachable screw ensures quick and secure fixing in C-slots. A housing of only 12.2 mm and a 90° rotated radial cable connection allows flexible mounting if space is tight. In spite of the small construction, the sensor ensures maximum functionality at minimum weight.

How it works

Easy drop-in mounting and secure fixing in C-slots thanks to the fixing concept.
Saves space due to the radial cable connection and the small construction.
Comparison mounting MZCG (left gripper) to MZC1 (right gripper).

Drop-in mounting and a cable connection rotated by 90° for reliable installation which saves you time
