Festo's proximity sensors are specially tailored and optimized for Festo actuators. They detect the magnetic field of permanent magnets built into the piston of the cylinder, thus indirectly indicating the position of the piston rod.
The available range covers freely configurable proximity sensors, modules, and solutions for special applications such as explosion protection, acids, food, cooling lubricants, weld field, etc.
The SIE series sensors have an eye for all metals, with functions ranging from sensing to distance measurement of metallic objects.
Position transmitters track the piston movement continuously and contactlessly in the position measuring range and output this information as a standardized current or voltage signal. They are the ideal solution for all applications with object tracking and process monitoring like thickness measurement, wear, good/bad testing etc.
Pressure sensors and vacuum switches for controlling all pressure values: programmable and as a modular product.
By monitoring the flow, a simplified diagnostic and condition monitoring process can be implemented: A change in the flow rate is often an indication that problems are likely to occur. The quality of end products can also be monitored.
Force sensors for measuring static or dynamic tensile and pressure forces
Thanks to the optical measurement methods, the SOE... series sensors cover a wide range of tasks. From color detection to detection of smallest parts, right up to a laser distance sensor. Of course it is perfectly tailored for the products and services of Festo.
The signal conditioner SVE4 converts the analog output signal from a sensor into switching points that can be taught in directly on the signal conditioner. Ideal wherever sensor accessibility is restricted.
Electrical limit switches are used to emit signals in end positions or intermediate positions. Depending on the connection, they can be used as N/O contacts, N/C contacts or changeover contacts.
Pneumatic sensors are contact-free signal generators. They are particularly suitable for end-position sensing and position control with high precision requirements. Compact dimensions permit use in difficult to reach positions, at different ambient temperatures and with heavy soiling.
