Very robust position sensors with 1 mm-thick metal face

New hydraulic sensors

  • Extremely pressure resistant with over10 million pressure cycles
  • Best value performer
  • Complementary output provides higher operational reliability
  • Standard M12 housing with ingress-resistant cable entry
  • Short housing (40 mm) for extremely low-profile cylinders

Function principle
The new MFH series sensor is suited for flush mounting in various steels. With its 1.8 mm sensing range it shows reliable switching characteristics. The new operating principle of this unit is based on a magnetic-inductive technology that detects only ferromagnetic metals (e.g. steel). It is sealed by means of an O-ring and a supporting ring towards the pressure area.

Besides use in hydraulic cylinders, the sensor is also ideal for other hydraulic components such as valves or pumps. MFH operates reliably for the lifetime of the cylinder. Furthermore, it is used in mechanical engineering processes, e.g. in plastic injection-moulding or process industry applications. Its attractive price means the sensor can also be considered for simple components where this option used to be too expensive.
