The V-TwinÃ¢â‚¬Å¡ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ – two sensors and one connector, reduces installation time and cost by requiring only one four-conductor cable with either M8 or M12 connections for two end-of-stroke sensors. Because the BMF V-Twin has just one connection for two sensors, it is suitable for detecting multiple positions on pneumatic grippers and cylinders and doubling the number of sensors in a multiple interface box. The sensors use magneto-resistive technology to detect the piston magnet through the aluminum wall of the cylinder.
It is available in several sizes and form factors to cover applications from grippers and short stroke cylinders to C-Slot, T-Slot round and tie rod cylinders, in some cases without requiring additional mounting brackets. Weld field immune versions are also available.
