Magnetic Field Sensors

Magnetic Field Sensors

Sure position detection even at high speeds


Our magnetic field sensors are used chiefly on cylinders and grippers for monitoring the piston position. The sensor thus recognizes the field of the magnet integrated into the piston through the actuator wall. even at high travel speeds.

With their non-contact position detection the magnetic field sensors from Balluff work absolutely reliably and wear-free: no contact burn, no bouncing, just clean switching points.

The most important benefits

  • Contact-free and therefore wear-free
  • No double switching points
  • Reliable even at high travel speeds
