The MZC1 magnetic cylinder sensor from SICK is the flexible solution for detecting the piston position in pneumatic actuators. The MZC1 can be mounted directly into all cylinders with standard C-slots. SICK also has an extensive range of adapters which enable the MZC1 to be used with other cylinder types. The MZC1 is characterized by its simple mounting principle: Insert the sensor into the slot and rotate the fixing screw a quarter turn to fix it securely to the cylinder. Furthermore, the MZC1 is available in a range of variants up to an enclosure rating of IP 69K. This ensures the sensor has a long service life and reduces maintenance costs.
