MPS-T position sensors continuously detect the piston position of pneumatic actuators using a direct, non-contact method. They can be mounted in T-slots without the need for additional accessories. The sensor settings can be adjusted during installation and during operation later on, using a teach pad or – depending on the variant – using IO-Link. The sensors continuously supply data via analog outputs or IO-Link, enabling flexible machine concepts and making it possible to solve tasks in areas such as quality monitoring and process control in conjunction with pneumatic cylinders and drives. This continuous transfer of position data upgrades the functionality of the pneumatic cylinders by making them more intelligent – and, as a result, more versatile.
