Hydraulic cylinder applications

  • Pressure-resistant up to 500 bar
  • Metal sensing face for heavy duty
  • High bursting pressure
  • Housing design to industrial standard
  • Lifespan of more than 10 million pressure cycles

Pressure-resistant sensors

The pressure-resistant position sensors are typically used for piston detection in hydraulic cylinders. They only detect ferromagnetic metals. Besides use as a limit switch in hydraulic cylinders, the sensors can also be used on other hydraulic components such as valves or pumps.

The one-piece full-metal housing made from high-grade stainless steel is resistant to pressure peaks up to 1,000 bar and withstands up to 10 million pressure cycles. A wide operating temperature range and high protection rating allow the use of the sensors in extremely harsh industrial environments.
