Flexible position detection on all pneumatic cylinders and grippers Magnetic field sensors are used chiefly for monitoring the piston position on cylinders and grippers. The sensor detects the field from the magnet embedded in the piston. Thanks to non-contacting position detection, fully electronic magnetic field sensors from Balluff function reliably and without wear, with no contact erosion, no bouncing, no sticking and just one switching point. The piston position is reliably detected even at high traverse speeds.
