Our BMF magnetic field sensors for C- and T-slots with adjustable multiple switch points enable quick integration of pneumatic and hydraulic cylinder drives into the machine control system.
Magnetic field sensors with fixed switch points typically must be manually positioned at the desired switch point and fastened in that position. In this case, it is sufficient to position the sensor at the approximate position and to attach it there. The switch point(s) are then set using the "Teach" button on the control panel.
In the simplest case, two different switch points on the same cylinder can be adjusted. In the IO-Link variant, it is possible to set and scan up to eight switch points within the sensor work area. As a result, up to eight different object sizes can be detected in, for example, one gripper, thus making the use of several conventional sensors superfluous. This means significantly more comfort for you as well as greater flexibility and cost savings.
