Balluff: Magnetic field sensor
Balluff’s V-Twin™ magnetic field sensor combines two sensors with one connector.
Low profile design reduces installation time and cost by requiring only one four-conductor cable with either M8 or M12 connections for two end-of-stroke sensors. The BMF V-Twin is useful for detecting multiple positions on pneumatic grippers and cylinders and doubling the number of sensors in a multiple interface box. Available in several sizes and form factors to cover applications from grippers and short stroke cylinders to C-Slot, T-Slot round and tie rod cylinders. Weld field immune versions are also available. Sensors use magneto-resistive technology to detect the piston magnet through the aluminum wall of the cylinder.
