BMF magnetic field sensors for the C-slot from Balluff are mainly used to monitor the piston position on cylinders and grippers. The sensor detects the field of the magnet integrated in the piston through the cylinder wall. Thanks to this non-contact position detection, the sensors function wear-free and reliably, even at high travel speeds.
Thanks to a special sensor element, the magnetic field sensors can be used on any cylinder regardless of the manufacturer. Less really is more now: the newest models replace several of our magnetic field sensors for the C-slot at once, which means that almost all cylinder sizes and makes can be covered with fewer designs.
With just a few mounting and retaining materials, the magnetic field sensors can be securely attached to any pneumatic cylinder with a C-slot. Flush-mountable, they are also suitable for space-critical applications. Since they can be inserted from above, the magnetic field sensors also fit where groove ends are closed and lateral insertion is not possible. In addition, Balluff offers extremely short designs for short-stroke cylinders.
In welding systems in the automotive industry, hold-down devices hold the sheets in the desired position during the welding process. A BMF magnetic field sensor integrated into the groove detects the piston end position on the hold-down pneumatic cylinder, thus ensuring smooth processes.
