SICK, Inc: Magnetic cylinder sensor
SICK’s MZT8 Magnetic Cylinder Sensor is a flexible and compact pneumatic cylinder sensor for t-slots.
The MZT8’s 24 mm sensor housing length is useful for short stroke cylinders and small mounting spaces. The MZT8 has a custom ASIC chip with GMR technology inside that provides precise magnetic piston detection with only +/- 5% sensitivity tolerance. It also has an active sensor tip (sensing element) that provides precise piston detection at the end of stroke as it reduces travel loss.
