Description

Magnetic sensors

Electronic magnetic sensors allow position monitoring of the pistons of cylinders with non-magnetisable housings (aluminium or bronze).
A permanent annular magnet is fixed to the piston, and its magnetic field is detected by the magnetic electronic sensor.
The magnetic sensors are fixed outside in the lengthwise slots of the cylinder body. The switching points are adjustable by displacement of the magnetic sensors in the lengthwise slots of the body.

Rod end bearings
The rod end bearings consist of a spherical bearing mounted in a housing that can be screwed onto the piston rod of hydro-cylinders or block cylinders.
The spherical bearing is a plain bearing that allows a force transmission with a tilting angle of maximally 4°.

Bearing blocks
The bearing blocks consist of a spherical bearing mounted in a housing that can be screwed onto the cylinder base of hydro-cylinders or block cylinders. 
The spherical bearing is a plain bearing that allows a force transmission with a tilting angle of maximally 4°.

Technology

Magnetic sensors

Monitoring of several positions
In the two lengthwise slots of the cylinder body several sensors can be fixed (depending on the length of the slot or the stroke). 
In one slot, the minimum distance between the switching points is 6 mm; with two slots it is 3 mm.

Influencing the magnetic field with adjacent, magnetisable components (e.g. steel parts)
In order to guarantee perfect functioning, it is recommended to maintain a distance of at least 25 to 30 mm between magnetic sensor and magnetisable components. The function is indeed possible 
with a smaller distance but this depends highly on the individual circumstances for fitting. Thus ordinary steel bolts can also normally be used for fastening the cylinder.
In borderline cases, screws of non-magnetisable steel (e.g. VA screws) can cause an improvement in the magnetic field.

Influencing the magnetic field with adjacent magnetic sensors
If several cylinders with magnetic sensors are installed directly adjacent to one another, the magnetic sensors can have a reciprocal influence and malfunctions occur. Troubles of functioning can occur. A magnetisable steel sheet can help, placed between the cylinders or magnetic sensors as a shield.
