WIM45 magnetic field sensor provides a direct analog output for determining the position of a piston magnet on all types of pneumatic cylinders, delivering greater accuracy than indirect analog monitoring with potentiometers or linear position systems.
The WIM45 detects the position of a piston on standard pneumatic cylinders by using a series of Hall elements, which sense the piston magnet and send a signal back to the processor. Users can reverse the sensor‚â€™s analog output slope by rotating the sensor 180‚Â°. This feature eliminates the need for two separate sensors and helps streamline the production process. The sensor‚â€™s immunity to EMC exceeds IEC EN 60947-5-2 and EN 61000-4-6 standards.
The WIM45‚â€™s compact housing is 72 mm long and 5 mm wide, and the unit is equipped with a robust mounting system to ensure stability during operation.
