Proximity sensor for T-slot

Proximity sensors for T-slots are available as reed and electronic versions. In addition to standard solutions, the range of switches also offers variants for almost all industrial segments, such as welding field resistant, 230 V, high temperature 120 °C, low temperature -40 °C, food-safe, acid-resistant, cooling lubricant-resistant, outdoor applications, ATEX, 5 V supply voltage.
Electronic sensors are the preferred solution for all factory automation applications, especially with high cycle rates. The most universal switch family is the SMT-8M-A.
Reed switches offer an alternative for simpler applications with lower pulse rates, for example. Reed switches are universally usable as PNP, NPN and they represent the only possible way of implementing position feedback as a potential-free contact. The SME-8M is then the preferred standard solution.

Groove cylinder proximity sensors

Proximity sensors for C-slots are available as reed and electronic versions.
Electronic sensors are the preferred solution for all factory automation applications, especially with high cycle rates. The most universal switch family is the SMT-10M.
Reed switches offer an alternative for simpler applications with lower pulse rates, for example. Reed switches are universally usable as PNP, NPN and they represent the only possible way of implementing position feedback as a potential-free contact. The SME-10M is then the preferred standard solution.

Proximity sensors, round design

Proximity sensors in round design can only be used on round cylinders and are available as reed and electronic versions.
These proximity sensors are the predecessors of the cylinder switches for T-slots and are therefore mainly used in existing systems. All T-slot switches can be used on round cylinders via kits.

Proximity sensor, block design

Proximity sensors in block design can only be used on tie rod cylinders and are available as reed and electronic variants.
These proximity sensors are the predecessors of the cylinder switches for T-slots and are therefore mainly used in existing systems. All T-slot switches can be used on tie rod cylinders via kits.

Cylinder signal generator PPL

The cylinder signal generator is a 3/2-way valve and is used for contactless pneumatic signal generation at the stroke end of cylinders. It is screwed directly into the compressed air connection of the cylinder.
Note:
The cylinder signal generator must not be used for position reporting.
