SICK Australia ’s MZT 6 magnetic cylinder sensor for detecting the position of pistons in pneumatic cylinders now has ATEX approval for Category 3D/3G in Ex-Zone 22.

The operating advantages of the magnetic cylinder sensor stem from its mounting technology. The sensor is first inserted from above, saving time. Then the MZT 6 is pressed onto the bottom of the pneumatic cylinder slot over its entire length during fixing. Standard tools are sufficient to carry out rapid and firm screwing of the slotted head or Allen screw into the metal cylinder liner.

Sunken installation in the slot, immunity to shocks, and vibration resistance of over 50G prevent changes in position and thus any alteration in the switching point during operation. This ensures reliable switching activity and a high level of machine availability. It is also impossible to rip out the sensor, inserted into the cylinder slot from above, by means of its cable. ATEX approval allows its use where there is a risk of explosions from ignitable gases or nonconductive dusts in the operating environment.
