TURCK, represented in Australia by TURCK Australia , has expanded its line of BIM-UNT cylinder position sensors with a new 2-wire DC version along with a NAMUR option for intrinsically safe applications.
The cylinder position sensors feature a wear-free design and short circuit protection, making them a suitable alternative to electromagnetic switches in the automotive industry. TURCK has also integrated a weld-resistant TPU cable to the cylinder position sensors.
Measuring 28 mm in length, the BIM-UNT is one of the most compact cylinder position sensors on the market. The active sensing faces are located directly at the end of the sensor, allowing it to safely detect the piston rod’s end position on compact, short-stroke cylinders.
BIM-UNT cylinder position sensors use magneto-resistive, board-level technology that improves sensor performance and enhances housing options. It comes with a quick-mount tab that helps seat the sensor in the cylinder’s groove to facilitate single-handed mounting. The screw is positioned away from the cable-end to provide cable strain relief, while also ensuring the sensor remains in place if the cable is pulled.
With a broad range of accessories, from precision mounting to wire-strain relief products, BIM-UNT cylinder position sensors can be simply installed in all T-groove, dovetail, round and tie rod pneumatic cylinders.
