ifm’s MVQ smart valve sensor uses magnetic technology to detect the position of quarter-turn valves. It provides a continuous feedback signal and the valve’s position is retained even after a power outage.

Mechanical switchboxes are commonly used for valve position feedback.  But they often leak and that moisture ingress causes them to fail.  The MVQ has a protection rating of IP67 so ingress issues are eliminated.
