TURCK introduces the BIM-UNT, a universal magnetic field sensor that detects the position of a piston on standard pneumatic cylinders. The BIM-UNT is highly immune to EMC, polarity protected, has reliable switching points and a fast response time. This and other design features make the BIM-UNT a desirable alternative for traditional cylinder position sensors.
The BIM-UNT uses magneto-resistive, board level technology that provides improved performance and housing. The sensing face has also been placed in the front of the sensor to aid in detecting short stroke cylinders. The sensor comes with a quick mount tab that helps seat the sensor in the cylinders groove – even before the screw is tightened – making single-handed mounting possible. The position of the screw has also been moved away from the cable-end to provide cable strain relief, while also ensuring the sensor remains in place if the cable is pulled.
BIM-UNT sensors include a broad range of accessories, from precision mounting to wire-strain relief products, to help install the sensors in all T-groove, dovetail and tie rod pneumatic cylinders.
