Sensor solutions for pneumatic and hydraulic systems
Fluid power sensors from SICK perform measurement tasks in pneumatic and hydraulic systems – intelligently, flexibly and reliably.
When it comes to providing information about the gripped part in addition to the position of the gripper itself, programmable magnetic cylinder sensors are the right tool for the job. These sensors are used in pneumatic cylinders. The MZ2Q magnetic cylinder sensor features two adjustable switching points that can be programmed in no time using teach-in buttons. Adjustable hysteresis allows the reliable retrieval of position information, even for extremely small strokes, and gives the gripper the ability to differentiate between workpieces of different sizes. This results in improved evaluation for the entire gripping process and leads to noticeable improvements in process stability.
