Turck WIM45 Sensor for Pneumatic Cylinders

TURCK has added a new compact WIM45 magnetic field sensor to its line of cylinder position sensors. The WIM45 provides a direct analog output for determining the position of a piston magnet on all types of pneumatic cylinders, and are more accurate than indirect analog monitoring with potentiometers or linear position systems. A WIM45 detects the position of a piston on standard pneumatic cylinders by utilizing a series of Hall elements that sense the piston magnet and send a signal back to the processor. The sensor’s analog output slope can be reversed by rotating the sensor by 180 degrees. This feature eliminates the need …
